They say, “It’s all fun and games until somebody loses an eye.” Even then, it’s still sort of funny – especially if it involves fireworks and YouTube. (Disclaimer: Coed isn’t endorsing eye injuries.) Every 4th of July, you hear about some idiot who pointed a pack of Screaming Banshees directly at their pupils while lighting the fuse. Some say this is a tragic mishap; I say it’s natural selection at it’s finest – maybe it’s time to let that bloodline go extinct?
As a 4th of July cautionary tale, here are 12 of the most painfully funny (with “funny” being subjective) firework fails – of all time!
1. Way Too Low
It appears that some fireworks went off wrong – and caused a mishap.
2. Burn Down the Farm
Smokey the Bear says, “Only dumb asses light fireworks in the middle of a dry, grassy field.”
3. Straight to the Face
Ha, ha, ha! It’s so funny cuz he was probably blinded!
4. Pain Comes Quickly
Okay, here’s Darwinism’s finest hour.
5. Too Much Magnesium
Yes, a little too much magnesium indeed!
6. Homemade Fireworks Fail
Rule of thumb: If a firework doesn’t go off, be sure to put it in your hand and hold it up to your face.
7. Fireworks Factory Explosion
General credo of common sense: People in glass houses shouldn’t throw rocks, and people who own fireworks factories shouldn’t let their f-ing factories blow up.
8. Roman Candle to the Face
This is how dinosaurs went extinct.
9. Fireworks Out the Ass
Surely these fellas will always remember their first homosexual experience for the rest of their lives.
10. Not Far Enough
This is how Jimmy got the nickname, “One-Eyed Jim.”
11. Mexican Fireworks Mishap
In the face is so much funnier. Ole!

Ha ha ha! He’s hurt. Ha ha ha.
