Backside firework prank backfires
A man suffered internal burns when he tried to launch a rocket from his bottom on Bonfire Night.
Paramedics found the 22-year-old bleeding, with a Black Cat Thunderbolt Rocket lodged inside him, when they attended the scene in Sunderland.

He suffered a scorched colon and is now recovering in hospital, where his condition is described as stable.

A spokesman for the North East Ambulance Service (NEAS) said the prank could have been fatal.

Douglas McDougal, from the NEAS, said: "We received a call stating there was a male who had a firework in his bottom and it was bleeding.

"He sustained fairly significant injuries in the fact that there's huge damage to that particular area."

'Beyond belief'

Mr McDougal added: "Potentially it could have been a fatal incident.

"There's a lot of major blood vessels round that area, so infection would probably be a huge problem for him.

"And also the body naturally produces methane gas, so combine that with the firework and the exploding effect with methane's flammability - it certainly could have been a lot worse than it really was."

A spokesman for the Firework Association described the bizarre prank as "beyond belief".

He said: "We have spent a long time working with the government to create laws that make fireworks safer and better for the public.

"This incident is very concerning but hopefully an isolated one."

Northumbria Police said they were aware of the incident, which happened in the Dame Dorothy Street area of Monkwearmouth, but are understood not to be carrying out further inquiries.

Anyone stupid enough to insert a firework up their bottom deserves to be injured.

I wonder if anyone will link this with the Jackass film. Steve-o did this in the hotel room scene off a balcony. Hmm...

LIGHTING YOUR FARTS ON FIRE... OMG! Thanks for reminding me of South Park... Cartman betted Kenny that he couldn't set his fart on fire. Kenny did it, and burnt to death, later he died. Went to hell and saw Satan and Saddam... ect ect. It's great. I love that episode. It's the Movie actually. I have it on DVD.

There are plenty of stupid things to put there, but at least grapes aren't (particuarly) explosive.

What a beat-up! A hatchet job - for every harmful accident involved with fireworks and arseholes, I bet there's a hundred successful launches.

Why doesn't it surprise me that a member of the male species was responsible for doing something stupid like this??
Anyone stupid enough to do this deserves what he gets out of it

Now now, don't judge us by our worst representatives. By that logic, I'd have to lump you in with Dr. Laura and Monica Lewinsky!

Taking a quick look at my competition, I can't say I blame you.
