    Do you love watching fireworks? What about watching fireworks that blow the shit out of poor, unsuspecting mannequins? Well, have we got a treat for you.

    The Consumer Product Safety Commission recently conducted their annual fireworks safety demonstration on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. And just like past safety demonstrations, it’s more hilarious than frightening. Okay, it’s a little bit frightening. We’ve cut the original video down to just the most explosive parts.

    Thankfully we're not made out of styrofoam.

    I had a firecracker go off in my hand as a kid. It got numb and blackened. That was about it.

    The bigger stuff you're asking for trouble. But I doubt many of the injuries occur unless you're a redneck saying "watch this".

    And I doubt those mannequins were even drinking.

    Was playing with fireworks with a friend about 23 years ago. We went into my parents' garage and found a bag of what I thought were smoke bombs. I lit one and held it in my fingers to blow out the flame and make the smoke. Turned out to be a cherry bomb. My fingers swelled up to double their size, my ears were ringing for 3 days, got some shrapnel cuts on my face and cut my cornea (still have a small scar on my cornea and luckily still have my fingers). Needless to say, I've never touched fireworks since that day.
