These are great I'm glad this page got updated thanks RoG

PoGo Jul 4th, 2009 05:31 AM

That was a good read. I liked the Outta My Way package.
Made me think of The Punisher.
Oh, and what the hell is up with that Unicorn pack?
It looks like some weird dog-dragon hybrid.
That can't be good.
No sir.

What better name for a firecracker than Quick and Dead? That ought to tell you that you can bet your ass that you'll be blown to bits the very moment you light the fuse.

Cheers Rog for opening my eyes to a world where trademarks and liscensed characters mean diddly squat. A world where I can see King Kong flying over the Statue of Liberty, a world where cowboys make their horses dance on fireworks for shits and giggles. My eyes have been opened Rog, and I embrace it. Thank you.

"Golden shower? Now that is one Fourth of July celebration I recommend avoiding"- classic. I am still chuckling over than one.

Bavles Jul 5th, 2009 08:43 PM

I'm really amazed that someone like you Rog wouldn't point out how much the "out of my way" guy looks like Bruce Campbell

Mockery Jul 5th, 2009 11:07 PM

Actually, I think PoGo is more on target in saying that he looks like The Punisher, what with that outfit 'n all.

Nick Jul 6th, 2009 03:06 AM

Man, I love these.

Dungeonbrownies Jul 6th, 2009 04:40 AM

Yesh, moar =D but kinda one issue, i dont wanna be a dick about this... but enthused isnt a word. though if its in the pickledictionary, ill gladly add it to mine. anyways, yea i love these things! its weird though how so how much of it is unrelated to what it does. the only ones that actually look like the art are those lil snakes, the ones that whistle, and a few fountains shaped like the pictured image (ie, the Tanks and those lil volcanoes)

Aries Jul 6th, 2009 04:21 PM

That one on the second page with the giant gorilla riding the Empire State Building rocket? Maybe that rocket is actually the building transformer from Big!!!

You know what isn't a word?

isnt

PolarisSLBM Jul 7th, 2009 01:14 AM

Holy crap, the Great White firecrackers had me laughing uncontrollably. That's so hilariously wrong.

Cruxader Jul 7th, 2009 01:41 PM

The Golliwog and Dixie Boy firecrackers are an NAACP lawsuit in the making if I've ever seen one. Good thing those were manufactured in China.

Lol, k ill accept its use, but I just remember being told to never use it in Elements of Style because it wasnt a "real word." Im guessing i should quit studying from outdated texts =P

Colonel Flagg Jul 10th, 2009 02:37 PM

I'm totally enthused over this update, -Rog-!

(Golden Shower? That totally belongs on engrish.com!)

testtube Jul 26th, 2009 08:17 AM

timebomb has a massive package

mister buch Aug 31st, 2009 07:35 AM

That is one odd looking unicorn.

rabid-penguin Sep 4th, 2009 07:42 PM

Just saw that "golden shower" one in a sweetbay this july. I would have NEVER expected to find one, but you can find any worth-crap fireworks in those pre-selected kits.

PreApocalyptica Jul 4th, 2011 03:34 PM

The Warm Greeting ones absolutely mystify me.

PoGo Jul 5th, 2011 01:54 AM

the warm greetings package scares me to the marrow. I do really enjoy the pissed eagle brand though. it makes me think of malt liquor for some weird reason. I think its the font.

k0k0 Jul 5th, 2011 02:11 AM

I thoroughly enjoyed the neighbor hater one. We used to light a lot of shit on fire in our backyard and when our visiting friends would worry about the neighbors, we'd inform them that the neighbors were illegal immigrants so they aren't gonna call the cops.

executioneer Jul 5th, 2011 04:59 AM

oh my god grumpy osama is my favourite
