Don’t shoot bottle rockets at each other’s eyes or hold exploding M-80s, kids, and definitely don’t lean over a firework that’s going to shoot into the air and explode [via].

Meanwhile, this guy’s got some manikin blood in him.

Yeah, the explosion turned the lights on and changed his shirt, but so what. It’s still a classic.

Be sane tomorrow, and if you can’t manage that, at least be safe.
