That's A Nice Addition to The Lawn

Apparently the roll of paper towels you used as a holder wasn't quite up to the task. Perhaps next time you could just wedge the explosives in a pile of rags soaked in kerosene.

Maybe Czech Out Some Directions

Glad to see the Old Town area of Prague is being preserved so well.

Thai Disaster

The next time one of your hippie friends is raving about their travels through Thailand, show them this sh*t show. That should give them something to meditate on.

Who Sold You This Stuff??

(explicit language)
I hear Shlitz tastes way better after multiple explosions to the face.

"The beacon! The beacon of Amon Dîn is lit!"

It's a Lord of The Rings reference...sorry.

Maniacal Cackling

Nothing is funnier than narrowly escaping horrible injury.

How Are You Not Dead?

They say this happens after every Eagles game.

I should probably fill this space in with a joke about Amsterdam and smoking pot, like "oh, you lit the wrong one" or something, but I feel an indictment of the Dutch people as a whole is uncalled for in this situation. Seriously, though, you were probably really high when you did this.

The Bombing of San Diego

In what was supposed to be one of the largest displays in the country, these cats accidentally lit everything off at once. Hope that 15 seconds of awesomeness tides you over till next year.

Shell Shocked

Anyone else feel like Tom Hanks at the end of Saving Private Ryan?
