The Consumer Product Safety Commission posted their annual video of mannequins getting blown-up by fireworks.  It begins by saying that there were over 11,000 injuries and four deaths because of fireworks last year.  And they get to work on some mannequins with sparklers, bottle rocks, cherry bombs, and M-1000s.

Obviously, with all the jokes aside, fireworks are potentially very dangerous when not used correctly.  Please be safe this 4th of July, you don't want to live life with 3 fingers and no franks and beans!
