HAH !!

'Cause baby, you're a firework
Come on show them what you're worth
Make them go, "Oh, oh, oh"
As you shoot across the sky..

Any bets on whether it was some yob who wanted to see what happens if all the fireworks go off at once?

Well, now they have the something borrowed, something blew covered.

As a purveyor and connoisseur of bad puns, I applaud subbys' work!

Liked the punny headline, but I have to ask... what kind of a douche has fireworks at their wedding reception?
Is it a cultural thing, or is it a lack of culture/Douche McBaggy type thing?

What part of the world is this? Where the hell is Cumbria?!

Witnesses at the adjacent Brockhole Lake District visitor centre said the noise of fireworks continued for about 20 minutes before firefighters arrived

Hit me
Going, going, gone
Now I dialed 999 a long time ago
Don't you see how late those blokes reactin'
They only come and they come when they wanna
So get the morgue embalm the goner
They don't care 'cause they stay paid anyway
They teach ya like an yob they can't be betrayed
I know you stumble with bollocks people
If your life is on the line then you're dead today
Late comings with the late comin' stretcher
That's a body bag in disguise guv'nor
I call 'em body snatchers quick they come to fetch ya?
With an autopsy ambulance just to dissect ya
They are the kings 'cause they swing amputation
Lose your arms, your legs to them it's compilation
I can prove it to you watch the rotation
It all adds up to a funky situation
So get up get, get get down
999 is a joke in me town
Get up, get, get, get down
Late 999 wears the late crown

They didn't just have fireworks at their wedding reception, they had a fireworks shed!  This wasn't going to be some cheesy skyrockets and good night, this show was going to be a show to die for.

I'd vote for it in the puns category.  It's just so dry and groan-inducing...I love it

Two people inside the magazine, WTF?

Please tell me they weren't working in there.

/ Most fireworks compositions are squirrely as fark and will readily detonate if confined.
