The Firework Code

The Firework CodeAs you all know, we have recently celebrated Guy Fawkes night here in Nanny's Britain. Despite Nanny's attempts to stamp this out, it still seems to be going strong (even if some have to resort to "virtual bonfires", because of health and safety concerns).

However, as much as I am anti Nanny, I must raise an official complaint about a shortcoming in the "Firework Code". This is a simple list of do's and don'ts that try to help people avoid injury when using fireworks eg:

"Don't throw fireworks"

Regrettably Nanny has failed, this year, to make the list suitably "idiot proof". It seems that a 22 year old man had to be carted off to hospital for severe burns.

Why?

He was at a fireworks party in Sunderland, dropped his trousers and attempted to launch a rocket from his own backside!

Seemingly the rocket (a Black Cat Thunderbolt Rocket) got stuck, as it were, and then exploded "in situ"...er..so to speak.

The man is suffering from, unsurprisingly, burnt arse syndrome.

He will make a full recovery.

So there you go folks, Nanny let herself down this year by not including the following in the Firework Code:

"Do not attempt to launch rockets from your own arse"

That being said, no matter how many rules and regulations you have you will never be able to fully protect the moronic and stupid from themselves.

    It says that they guy used a "Black Cat Thunderbolt Rocket", I’m from the U.S.A. and used thoughts things. They actually do have a warning on them, at least over here. I can't remember it word for word, but its along the lines of not to it light near your body and to run once it is lighten, along with the bit about adult supervision. Given the regulations you poor people go through I'd be supprised if your own fireworks don't have warnings that cover the whole lable.

  8. Talking of blowing one's arse off, you don't need a firework.

    The ancient and noble art of lighting one's farts is also very risky. There have been instances of flashback resulting in a small explosion inside the rectum. Makes one's eyes water just thinking about it.

    Needless to say this is not conducive to continuing good health for the person concerned. So we obviously need a law preventing shopkeepers from selling boxes of matches together with tins of baked beans.

    I'm joking, Nanny! Honest!
