Why are some supposedly heterosexual guys so keen to shove weird things up their butts?

The bit 20 seconds in amazes me. If I hit my friend in the face with a firework, my first reaction would be 'sh*t, I've killed him', not to laugh.

Then again, I'm just a liberal socialist Euro commie.

You'd think right?! My first thought watching that was oh sh*t too, then I hear the guy laughing and couldn't believe it.

I thought the dog running off with it was pretty funny though. In fact, I think that's the only one I laughed at, the rest I was cringing at.

Amazing. Agreed on the dog, tying a string of crackers to the guys ankle was awesome too.

But man, people are idiots

"he needs a rocket up his ass" has a whole new depth of meaning for me now.

It was only luck that the dog grabbed it the way it did, it was almost cooked from the inside.

Very true!

I can't get over the reactions of some of the bystanders/friends who are laughing when the poor stupid fools get a firework to the face/nuts/arse!

I wept with laughter through almost all of it.

I think I'm a bad person.
