    Darwinism of the highest order

    Man Injured in November 5th prank. (This happened in the next fire service area down from me).

    A man is recovering in hospital from serious internal injures after launching a firework from his backside.

    The 22-year-old suffered a scorched colon and other injuries in the incident in Sunderland, Tyne and Wear.

    The prank, involving a Black Cat Thunderbolt Rocket, was captured by a gang of youths and the fuzzy mobile phone footage shows a blinding white flash followed by hysterical laughter.

    A spokeswoman for the North East Ambulance Service said: "We received a call stating there was a male who had a firework in his bottom and it was bleeding.

    "He was attended to and taken to Sunderland Royal Hospital."

    Safety experts warned that misusing the explosives in such a senseless way can have serious consequences.

    A spokesman for the Firework Association, said he had never heard of an incident like it in 45 years.

    He added: "This sort of thing is beyond belief. We have spent a long time working with the Government to create laws that make fireworks safer and better for the public.

    "This incident is very concerning but hopefully an isolated one."

      The particualr part of the anatomy is for outgoing not incoming. Maybe he needs a refresher course in body functions.

        I'm afraid Darwinism isn't in effect here, unless this incident permanently hurt this idiot's frank-n-beans.

        I think the fool expected only "outgoing" activity... apparently he missed school the day they discussed how every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Maybe next year, they will use the phone-cam footage as a class demo!

          He is not alone

          I had a very similar self inflicted injury when my dear wife made a very hot curry. She really went overboard on the "Napalm" extract that seemed a vital ingredient in this particular dish!

          Never again.

            HEHEHEEHE now this is funny. Just this morning during the drive in, there was a report from New Zealand of a similar story. Tale goes that a man attending a fireworks display decided that the public show was too boring, so he stuck what amounts to a Roman Candle up his Gazzoo and lit it off. The description of injuries sounds very similar to his British cousin. Wonder if they are related?

            Also in the radio report, was much discussion from the female 1/3rd of the show, asking why it is that while guys seem to both regard and protect the Family Jewels, there seem to be a high number of incidents in which one male member of the species seems to enjoy subjecting his "nether region" as she put it, to such abuse........

                          Yeah, Harve's was funny, but I think this post takes top honor for being the best response throughout the entire Twilight Zone period FH just went through (or is still going through, because I couldn't post a thread yesterday at all).

                              Safety campaigners say they have never come across such a bizarre incident but it is thought the squaddie could have been copying a scene from the controversial film Jackass: The Movie which shows a similar prank.
                              Oh well, that explains it. Can't believe a soldier would do something so stupid, especially after surviving a tour in Iraq.

                              Finally had time to click on the links. Couldn't see anything on the first video, it was too dark. The second video just made me shake my head in disbelief and wonder "Why"???
