Cabel Sasser's gallery of fireworks packaging is not to be missed, especially if you love viewing our society through the eyes of a Photoshop-equipped Chinese factory designer.
Yay! Fireworks! [Cable.name via â˜…]

I’m really glad you brought this up.
Not only have I noticed the killer images on the fireworks out in Pa. as we were attending the Kutztown Folk Festival, (not AT the fest, but in the surrounding countryside) but I gave in at age 42 and got myself one of those “cap bombs” that fires those plastic “cap gun” caps when you drop it on a hard surface.
That and a huge cap refill cost like 3 bucks.
I haven’t played with caps since…
Well anyway, we’ve developed a routine where someone yells “‘merca!” (America!) and then we drop it and set it off. (This is usually while drinking.)
Stupidest funnest dam stupid fun! Awesomeness.
I MIGHT even have enough caps to last me till the end of the week when our vacations is over.
Here’s one I bought last year:
The label has lots of clip-art pictures of people playing with dogs.
What a cruel joke. Nearly all dogs are terrified of fireworks.
@1: I had one of those! I also had a lame one like that that had a plastic grenade on top of the striking point, making it unwieldy to fire the cap in any manner but “stabbing” the grenade against a surface. Mmmm…… I can smell the caps now….
“SHOOTS FLAMING BALLS…”
That’s nothing. I used to have a fountain cone called “Golden Shower.”
