This is why we can't have nice explosives.

Manufacturing fireworks?  Aren't that what underprivileged Chinese children are for?

"Dinwiddie officials are working to figure out what caused a trailer full of fireworks to explode Sunday morning killing a man."

I'm not the world's best Clue player, but I think it might have had something to do with the trailer being full of fireworks.

The State Police bomb squad was on the scene assessing the situation.


"Yup, it done blowed up real good."

There are lots of items you can make yourself with out training or licenses to either save money, relax, or fill yourself with a sense of accomplishment.  Fireworks are not one of those items.

TFA is full of southern-fried names.

Was the trailer directed by Michael Bay?

Actually, lots of people do amateur pyrotechnics safely. Sadly, this guy seems to have not been one of them. Construction and storage areas are not supposed to overlap./now wait till they discover amateur rocketry....

Oh say can you see, by the dawn's early light, what so prou-ou-ou-oudly we hailed, at the twi-light's last gle-e-aming. Whose bright stripes and broad stars, throught the perilous night, o'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming. And the rocket's...red glare! Lots of bombs in the air, gave proof through the night, that we still had our flag. Oh does that star spangled banner wave o-o-o-over all we see, for the h-o-o-ome of the land, and the land...of the...FREE!

The no smoking signs aren't a suggestion.

I hope someone was holding his beer.

A sad loss as another patriot dying for our freedumbs.

What a dimwittie.  They have guys that make those explodey types of things.
 
2013-07-01 10:17:29 AM
How is this even remotely weird?
 
2013-07-01 10:22:57 AM
Well at least they can just bury him in a shoe box, so in the end they do save money.

A trailer explosion not caused by Meth? That IS weird!

Wife and daughter were in another building -- Darwin swings and misses.

And, yes, Dinwiddie County is an actual place.
 
2013-07-01 11:20:24 AM
Dimwit County?  No surprise.
 
2013-07-01 11:58:16 AM
Goodness.  Here in the wilds of Iowa, we usually get our illegal fireworks by slipping down across the state line into Missouri and, you know, buying them.

Kelly has been doing this for years and is not a surprise. It's Dinwidduh.

RIP smithereens man.

In california you cannot buy good fireworks. The only ones available are the safety versions. No mortars, firecrackers, etc.

So if you dont want to drive to a neighboring state to get real fireworks, this is what you do:

Take 1 Piccolo pete (or any whistler like a pete). Wrap it in tape from about 1/4 way up the bottom to the top. Good thick tape.
Take a hammer and smash the pete all up and down the shaft.

Light it and run. Its now a piccolo pete rocket/bomb.

Oh my god, smellin' tires, someone save the baby, it's a trailer park fire
Well how did the whole thing get out of hand?
I was burning spiders with the aerosol can
Oh my god, smellin' tires, someone save the baby, it's a trailer park fire
Where we gonna live baby, where we gonna live?
Storage shed on Cottonwood and 5th
Oh my my, smellin' tires, someone save the baby, it's a trailer park fire
Gotta get in there, kick down the door
Daddy left his Harley on the living room floor
Oh my my, smellin' tires, someone save the baby, it's a trailer park fire
It's Sunday night, the fire hall's closed
Only hope now's if the waterbed blows
Oh my my, smellin' tires, someone save the baby, it's a trailer park fire
Well, you save Grandma, I'll save the crank
we'll meet out back by the propane tank

And a spark. Possibly a static electricity spark. Most folks don't think of that.

Joe Dirt: So you're gonna tell me that you don't have no black cats, no Roman Candles, or screaming mimis?

Kicking Wing: No.

Joe Dirt: Oh come on, man. You got no lady fingers, fuzz buttles, snicker bombs, church burners, finger blasters, gut busters, zippity do das, or crap flappers?

Kicking Wing: No, I don't.

Joe Dirt: You're gonna stand there, ownin' a fireworks stand, and tell me you don't have no whistlin' bungholes, no spleen splitters, whisker biscuits, honkey lighters, hoosker doos, hoosker don'ts, cherry bombs, nipsy daisers, with or without the scooter stick, or one single whistlin' kitty chaser?

Kicking Wing: No... because snakes and sparklers are the only ones I like.

Joe Dirt: Well that might be your problem, it's not what you like, it's the consumer.

That is a sadly underrated movie.

Trailers are damn dangerous places.

If this was in Tennessee, Missouri, or elsewhere in the midwest, I would've assumed that this brain surgeon was making fireworks in his meth lab when the whole shebang went ...um, bang. In Virginia, I'll give Bubba Threefingers the benefit of the doubt and just assume he was smoking in his fireworks shack, which is stupid enough.
