The World’s Top 10 Ridiculous Names for Fireworks

Here in the UK it is Fireworks night (Otherwise known as Bonfire Night/Guy Fawkes Night) and while looking into my pathetic little box of fireworks I realised that some of them have some rather fancy names! The Boom Stick, The Power Punch, The Fire Volcano they all have some very silly names indeed. But my ones are nothing compared to this lot…

  1. Oh, you can GET them. You’re just not supposed to! Leastways, not in most cities in British Columbia. The only sanctioned displays are put on by groups with permits. Come Canada Day, Halloween (& Guy Fawkes) however, they can be seen and heard around various neighbourhoods, legal or not.

  2. You have more freedom than here in the Colonies. In Ohio it is illegal to possess or shoot off anything but child’s-play fireworks: sparklers, smoke bombs, “snakes,” etc. You have to get a special permit to use fireworks at a private function.

  3. I love your posts. I’ve actually saw the “Golden Shower Fountain” one in stores where I’m from. Thank you for finding humor for my late night reading!
