The last one was the best.

How many times have you sat at your desk, drinking your morning coffee, when the desk explodes??????


I hate it when that happens.


I love the one with the (plaster) guy loooking right down the tube as the mortar fires.


Gotta be a Darwin Award winner to do some of this.

From the Darwin Awards web site:

quote:
(12 August 2006, Indiana) At a party somewhere between Nashville and Bloomington, a young man was drinking and watching people set off fireworks. Suddenly a great idea occurred to him. He could improve upon this amateur fireworks display! He put down his drink and set to work.

When it comes to fireworks, your brain can't be much safer than sheltered inside a football helmet. He found an old helmet, duct-taped a mortar-style firework to the top, put it on his head, and lit the fuse...

A bright flash of light nearly blinded observers. When their eyes recovered, they saw him lying on the ground, unconscious and bleeding. Astoundingly, the 21-year-old survived this party stunt with only a mild concussion and burns.

His helmet, however, was blown to pieces.

I can't tell this as funny as it actually was, may have already posted but, since it is the season.....

Many years back, I was dating a lady who was a respiratory therapist at a local hospital.
Bunch of us went to the Talladega race in early August, she was telling us about hanging around the ER on the night of the 4th of July.

Seems a little Italian guy came in with his hands over his face. Quite inebriated, 50somthting. Took a while for them to get him to remove his hands. Substantial burns.
He didn't want to explain, but they finally got him to talk.

Paraphrasing, heavy Italian accent: "Well, my name's Ollie, I'ma 54. I gotta' 6 year old boy. Don't ask me why I got a six-year-old boy, but I got 'em. My boy says, 'Papa, I wanna' shoot the firecracker.' Mama says, 'Ollie, you don'ta shoot no firecracker in the house!' So we a go to the porch to shoot the firecracker. I'ma smokin' my cigarette, so I use it to lighta the firecracker for my boy to throw. We throw 2, I light another, put my cigarette back in my mouth. I know I'ma ina BIG trouble when I hear a sizzle, a sizzle,
a KABOOM!"

She said ER personnel were running into bathrooms, running outside, sticking their heads into closets, anything to keep from laughing in the poor man's face.

He had thrown the cigarette, smoked the firecracker.


EAPFP, and Happy 4th

When I was about 15 years old My buddies and I were shooting bottle rockets up and down the street. Me being brilliant was carrying about a gross (144) in the front pocket of my shorts and they somehow got ignited. My first thought was of the old Dick Van Dyke commercial regarding home fires, ROLL DICK ROLL, so I commenced to rolling down the street to put the fire out.

In the ER with skin hanging off my leg nurses kept showing up, looking down and saying damn boy your lucky. I had 3rd degree burns within an inch of shorty and his two friends. I 'bout burned my pecker.

Needless to say I haven't blown anything up in over 24 years.

Nice one! That's why I stick with black cat firecrackers...just make you go a little numb. I think that old lady would have gotten out of her folding chair after the first bottle rocket not the 20th!!! Also, if Gallagher would have done that to his watermelon I would have seen him live...

My sons and I were watching that, I kept yelling "get out of the $#@%ing chair!"

Priceless.

I seem to remember a dispatcher that talked endlessly on the radio, until one of the officers came in, pointed his finger like a pistol, and a bottle rocket flew out of his hand.
Took a couple of days to get the smell out of the office.

Local displays done.

We all have all our fingers and toes, the barn is still standing, and 35 acres of hay that was cut this morning is not burning.
