As Labor Day Weekend arrives, you’re hopefully heading to someone else’s house so that you don’t have to worry about hosting. But in case you’re one of the unlucky few who wound up with the thankless job of having all your friends over, we’re guessing you’ve got a plan for how to handle things.

If not, then good luck. The only thing we can do is tell you a couple of things you shouldn’t do. And those are more fun to list anyways, right?

So in order to help us with the list of things you should avoid doing this Labor Day Weekend, we recruited photographer Jeff Werner to give us some of his exclusive images of his stuntmen friends showing you all some things to avoid.


FLAMING GIRL COOKS HOTDOG Don't invite stuntwomen to the barbecue and then ask them to cook.

1. Don’t Invite Stuntwomen to the BBQ and Then Ask Them To Cook… Unless You Invited a Safety Crew As Well

Hollywood stuntwoman Hannah Kozak has found a new way to cook a hotdog. Hannah puts on her protective fire suit, douses herself with lighter fluid, and then sets herself on fire. She holds the hotdog over her burning body until the hotdog is lightly char broiled. Photos depict Hannah enjoying a delicious summertime snack. Hannah enjoys cooking this way, but she does not think that this style of bar-b-queuing will soon replace the traditional BBQ anytime soon.


FLAMO LE GRANDE LIGHTS UP THE BARBIE

2. Don’t Drink Too Many Beers Before You Go Light Up the Barbie! HOTSHOT!

Great Balls of Fire! Fire-eater Flamo LeGrande never had trouble lighting his barbecue. The San Francisco resident, whose real name is David Warren, blew a huge fireball as model Rebecca West, holding a tray full of steaks and goodies, watches. Flamo was a professional fire-eater who regularly performed at San Francisco’s GIANT CAMERA attraction, and was a renowned member of the San Francisco Suicide Club.

3. Don’t Smoke Around the Kids

“GOTTA LIGHT, DRAGON-BREATH? Stick out your tongue and say…OUCH! Smokin’ performer David Warren, a.k.a. “”Flamo Le Grande,” was an old-fashioned kind of guy who lit cigarettes for women. Only he lit them with his tongue!!

4. Don’t Run Out of Gas on the Way to the BBQ… It Could Turn in to a Real Pain in the Ass!

Manila, Philippines–Some people will do anything to get into the record books. We’ve heard of hair-raising stunts, but this one shot in Manila is, well, ass-cheek raising. This young daredevil pulls a 2-ton jeep with his buttocks, a lot of determination! First, his assistants pierce his tender cheeks with two large needles. Then they attach a rope pulley to the bumper of the jeep, and tie the rope to the metal pins inserted into the stuntman’s derriere. Grunting in pain, the wanna-be stuntman pulls his way into show business with his rump, ass-cheeks flowing, and manages to drag the vehicle across a basketball court to the other end. Everything turned out just cheeky in the end, but the young needle jockey enjoyed his dinners standing up for the next week.

Fart Man Blows out Birthday Candles with his flatulence

6. Don’t Serve Beans at the BBQ Unless You Want to Blow Up the Joint

Ronald Cabanas, aka Fartman, passes wind with such force that he can blow up a balloon from six inches away with a dart shooting from his ass. The performer from Leon, Philippines, has learned to direct his flatulence through an air pipe, placing one end of it through a slit in his pants, taking aim, and firing a group of powerful farts, passing enough wind to propel a dart into a balloon.

Kawa Baths Philippines

7. Stick to BBQ.  Don’t Become the Main Course

At the Kayak Inn in Tibiao, Philippines, tourists are added to a recipe of hot water, coconut leaves, and a bathing beauty or two. The “cook” will light a fire underneath a kawa (pot), and when the water is hot enough, he will invite you to step inside, where you’ll steep for an hour or so until you’re ready to become the main course. No worries, its all for fun, and since the kawa is constructed from thick cast iron, the water only gets hot enough to give you a relaxing Jacuzzi experience without the bubbles, just fire and smoke.

9. Eat The Watermelon… Don’t Shoot it Off Your Brother’s Head

When the Richmond Brothers of Granger, Indiana go on a family picnic, it’s always entertaining and sometimes a little loud and painful!  For this outing, crack shot John Richmond brought his 20 gage shotun armed with deer slugs and martial artist brother Ken brought the watermelons.  Then the brothers measured out 25 feet on a grassy field, and took their positions, with Ken holding a watermelon on top of his head, with a pair of goggles as his only protection.

Count to 3 and BANG! WATERMELON-EYE! Shot by ace action photographer Jeff Werner with a specially designed HULCHER CAMERA AT 65 FRAMES PER SECOND; the resulting incredible pictures show the watermelon exploding on Ken’s head in a dizzying display.

About the Photographer:

Jeffery R. Werner was once described by the premiere industry periodical, French Photo, as the “incredible but true photographer.” A person simply needs to see his images once – to become hooked and want to see more.

Jeff Werner’s photography went viral long before there was reality TV and the Web. Considered a generalist, Werner is nevertheless best known for documenting and celebrating the exploits of real people, incredible animals, and daredevils performing amazing and often death-defying feats. His images run the gamut from documenting the daily struggles of a child with a life-altering handicap to a stuntman pushing the limits – beyond what is humanly impossible.

Werner developed his craft using the same honed skill as P.T. Barnum combined with a trained journalist’s vision: He knows whatpeople will find incredible and presents it with passion and with respect for his subjects. For over thirty years Werner’s work has been licensed to magazines, books, newspapers, and TV.

Before the popularity of the Web and reality television, tabloid photography might have seemed taboo; now it’s become a major Staple of the Internet, the news, and pop culture. Werner has always maintained the publishing rights to his works; knowing they would provide the revenue to produce his next story.

With his ability to turn life into art, Werner, who was labeled “the Davinci of Daredevil photography” by an American TV show,  continues to travel the world in search of the most amazing,  bizarre, and incredible stories that his pictures will make go viral.
