I feel like shit right now with a cold, and with all else going on I figured it might be worth laughing at the dumbassery of some “yutes” who tried turning their lives around, not with guns this time, but with a blowtorch, and the expected hilarity which ensues.
This story from today’s New Hampshire Union Leader tells the cautionary tale of a couple of not-so-cautionary gents who, despite their recent legal troubles including felony charges of receiving stolen property, forgery, and so forth, decided their lives needed some excitement, and chose a blowtorch to cut into a safe containing (what else?) fireworks.
According to the state fire marshal’s office, “the two males were attempting to gain entry into a closed metal container which contained consumer fireworks using an oxy-acetylene cutting torch when the blast occurred. The investigation has revealed that the two victims did not have permission to be on the property.”
Thomas Komisarek, owner of New Yard Landscaping, said the container was a safe.
“The whole thing went up and blew their bodies apart,” Komisarek said.
Okay kids, altogether now: “Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.”
