    Man injured after launching firework from bottom

    LONDON (AFP) - A man was rushed to hospital in Britain with severe internal injuries after trying to launch a powerful firework from his bottom, an ambulance service spokesman said.

    It is thought that the 22-year-old could have been trying to imitate a scene from "Jackass: The Movie", a controversial film featuring a series of edgy pranks.

    Footage of the incident in Sunderland, north-east England, was captured on a mobile phone by a gang of youths and shows a white flash followed by hysterical laughter and a youth shouting: "Ha ha ha ha," followed by an expletive.

    A spokesman for the North East ambulance service said: "We received a call stating there was a male who had a firework in his bottom and it was bleeding."

    He is now recovering in a Sunderland hospital after sustaining internal injuries including a scorched colon.

    The incident took place on November 5, when Britons light bonfires and let off fireworks to commemorate a 17th century plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament.

    So the Brits celebrate the near-torching of their Parliament building by blowing shit up?
  6. They truly suck at fun.

    No pun intended by the "blowing shit up" comment by the way. Even though this guy almost did.

    This sounds like something you'd see at a West Virginia family picnic.

    Hey ya'll, watch this!
