Bottle rockets and backsides - a Jackass combination

Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction:

From Sunderland, UK: A man suffered internal burns when he tried to launch a rocket from his bottom on Bonfire Night.

[A paramedic] added: "Potentially it could have been a fatal incident.

"There's a lot of major blood vessels round that area, so infection would probably be a huge problem for him.

"And also the body naturally produces methane gas, so combine that with the firework and the exploding effect with methane's flammability - it certainly could have been a lot worse than it really was."

What do you want to bet, these guys have bumper stickers on their cars?
