The past couple of days once again made all of us witnesses one of this poor country's excesses!
The poor burned and exploded their food allowances through disgusting combinations of gunpowder, fertilizer (yes, the farm supplement) and carabao manure (i'm not kidding). While the rich flaunted their extravagance by exploding more and commanding their househelps to be in the line of fire by setting up and igniting the deadly fuses.
These exploding devices, which also causes deadly bacterial infections to firecracker victims (remember the carabao dung?), come in various shapes and sizes and referred to as 5 stars, triangullo, diablo, whistle bomb, sinturon ni hudas, etc..
Here's a tip to the wives. In order to stop your men from wasting their hard earned money, threaten them with no sex if they will burn firecrackers. -- Se Spari, Niente Sesso!
