From the sublime...

Well, that quiz turned out to be slightly tedious didn't it. Good job I have a competitive sister to spend all her waking hours trying to find the answers. I shall buy her a coffee or something next time I see her.

Anyway this caught my attention the other day.



The combination of this..


and this.....
may not be a good idea, apparently.

Not letting drunk people fire rockets out of their arseholes....

It's Health and Safety gone maaad!!!

Apparently the young man was a squaddie recently returned from Iraq who thought the neighbourhood firework party was "boring" and that if he mooned with a rocket launched from his bum it would liven things up - backfired (in the true sense of the word). I'm just amazed that this legislatively addicted government havn't rushed out a new law.

Tee-hee - I posted this over on the Snopes Crash & Burnforum a few days ago (there's a link to the video of the incident on there). Cue jokes about "ring of fire" "rump roast" and "rectum - damn near killed 'em" etc and suggestions for safety warnings about "not designed to be fired from the bum".

the spacial arrangement of those images is rather suggestive. have you been hanging out with Dave lately?

Valerie said...

Wow. What was he thinking — that he could fart it out?

Can't believe I didn't get the Germaine Greer one on your quiz - what a disgrace but did you know that she signs her name with a little heart with wings on it - anyway that made me smile

I haven't watched Graham Norton in AGES but I did last night, and saw the video taken on a 'friend's' phone camera. D'ye think there's any chance this little episode will reached his necessaries have totalled his reproductive system? Do we want this man to reproduce? I think not. Do you actually have to die to be awarded a
Darwin?

If he really was a member of the UK armed forces he is damned lucky that he did not fire the rocket the other way.

(word verification) eppma - suppository for those with hare lip.

I think he qualifies for an "honorable mention" on the Darwins.

Dave said...

Chaucer's young lady clearly doesn't know down which tubes kidney stones pass. I'm not going to attempt to launch a rocket from their eventual exit-point.

llewtrah said...

Dave, once the stone almost reaches the exit, if you build up a good head of pee you can launch it so it pings round the urinal (try the saga of my mate's kidney stone).

Del said...

Sounds like a simple mix up to me. He'd probably spent several minutes trying to find the blue touch paper on a suppository.

I think he may have got the idea from the popular prankster show 'Jackass'.
The potential for 'rogering' his internal organs, reproductive or otherwise, is pretty high. Anyway girls don't make passes at boys who wear colostomy bags....generally...in my experience.

Love the Darwins by the way, in fact I may put up a notice about it in the surgery in case some of my patients would like to enter.

Although Jackass is blamed, anal fireworks have been around as a stunt for many years before thta programme. I've seen anal fireworks on alternative stand-up comedy acts (they didn't use rockets - generally sparkler type things).
