Fireworks: A Packaging Analysis

One of the fireworks I saw set off this weekend was "Brachiosaurus." Its packaging showed a brontosaurus-style dinosaur shooting fire from its mouth.

Yet once ignited, the Paleocene pyrotechnics just made a whistling sound and shot a few sparks. No dinosaur!

CONCLUSION: There can be a tenuous relation between fireworks packaging and the explosives contained therein. (Photos via Cabel Sasser.)
