This is exactly why kids shouldn’t play with fireworks without parental supervision.

Later that afternoon, the same child was caught smokin’ papa’s cigarettes and then was forced to smoke the entire pack as a lesson…..some kids will never learn
You know what’s really awkward? The fact that this photo (with THAT haircut, THOSE shorts, and THAT shirt) isn’t nearly as old as you think. Notice the cell phone on his hip . . .
I’m horrified at that.
yeahhh i hope its a utility knife or something
Hurry up Mable!The kid won’t burn forever!If thats a boy it is awkward.The matchimg outfits add
Hey mom, don’t drop the camera and help out…..by all means snap the photo first!
Fourth of July picnics always call for a rousing game of lawn darts – lighting them up only ads to the hilarity.
…I think he’s powering up, not being burned at all.
Notice the feet spaced at shoulders length distance. The tightly clenched fists.
THIS, ladies & gentlemen, is textbook Son Gokuo.
Aw man, Why are you traumatizing Cousin Oliver like that?
Do you think Dad can sit in those shorts???
I would prefer he didn’t.
So, what is the general concensus. What is more annoying, the crossbow jokes, or the “this is photoshopped” comments? I’m just saying. Poor kiddo
At least the compound bow jokes were funny…at first.
Compound bow. Just sayin’.
I have been thinking long and hard about that. I am more annoyed by the photoshopped comments.
Can I vote photoshop, especially when the commenter clearly doesn’t know the limits of photoshop?
And this picture is bringing back bad memories of bad 4th of July celebrations past… I still fear sparklers.
In case anyone didn’t read the fifty-some comments about this, SO CLOSE TO THE PROPANE TANK. OH MAH GOD.
I’m sorry–”propane tank”? Propane tank??
(noticing the propane tank)
Yeah…I was just gonna say that maybe the propane bottle is a little close.
the gas thingy?
Are we certain that’s not a flaming arrow shot from a……..
Oblivious dad FTW!
I’m guessing mom is holding the camera. I wonder how many times they tried this before they got just the right shot.
Does anyone read the other comments before posting their own? Propane tank mentions at 9:02am, 9:07am, 9:09am, 9:17am……….10:09am
propane tank, propane tank, propane tank
did you see the propane tank?
the prior comments were probably not approved and posted yet.
There were no comments posted at all when I posted mine so shut up.
I smell a sub for the compound bow jokes!
Where do I start? The child is not shod, although the adult clearly had the forethought to wear flip-flops. He is lighting a sparkler by a propane tank. Last but not least, he thinks the child is a Roman candle.
Roman candles move rather swiftly.
Notice the propane tank in the background. Not a good scene all around.
That hurts I know I have been burned by one that was dropped before.
Awww… and LOL.
(But great timing.)
And maybe little funny…
OMG! I hope they only see each other on visiting day at the prison. Who’s taking this picture? The other irresponsible parent?
Good Lord, I hope the valve isn’t open on the propane tank!
Shoot, even with parental supervision by the looks of it.
It looks like the guy has just thrown that on the kid’s foot!
I think the child was more traumatized by dad’s choice of shorts. And is that a gas tank behind that kid?!
no… it’s a gas bottle…
Did Dad just throw a firecracker at the baby’s foot, or is he trying out a magic trick?
The only original comment in the whole post. Great!
Aw, poor little guy! I can’t imagine getting the picture right at that moment!
Ye–OUCH. Seriously? Seriously?
Priceless expression on the kid’s face.
Extra bonus points for the gas canisters behind the kid while playing around with fireworks!
This little boy and the Slip ‘n’ Slide girl were simply made for each other.
Excellent point!!! Hilarious!
This was my first thought too!
Yep-what a cute pair and they could fall “accidentally in love”
Those darn adults always ruin all the fun!
Even though it’s horrible the firework is going of on the kid’s foot (nice one, pops) it’s a great shot!
next to the propane tank… awesome.
Good thing it landed between the toes and not on the propane tank just behind him!
They’re not close enough to the Propane Tank.
I love the look of intense concern on dads face
I bet he is thinking “oh crap my wife is going to kill me”
They should move those fireworks closer to the propane.
Dad: “You see what happens when you dont properly handle fireworks?! Now let me show you what happens when you dont properly handle a propane tank.”
“Next up… I’m a gunna put suspenders on the tank of propane and lightin’ that up too. Eeehaw!”
Nice shorts!! Meow!
Love to propane tank in the background… always find the most AWKWARD place to light things, like kid’s toes, on fire!
those shorts are entirely too short/tight. the kid has a perfectly shaped bowl cut though. very nice. it’s a shame the sparkler got out of control…
Maybe he should move closer to the gas bottle.
“Gas bottle” is the most awkward way on record to describe a propane tank…
Soooooo awkward!!!! More awkward than the photograph.
Hey! LOLs abound on both those responses! GAS BOTTLE! Can we call the fireworks HOT HURT STICKS?
Hilarious. Very good!
“HOT HURT STICKS”….I just laughed so hard I scared the cat.
I laughed until I cried…. these fun jokes made my day!
“hot hurt sticks” that made me crack up!
Oh come on! Quit being a whiny baby. You’ve got nine other toes!
I especially love the use of fireworks next to the propane tank. Nice!
…or apparently even WITH parental supervision.
the shorts are far more awkward than the third degree burns…
You mean your dad didn’t wear Daisy Duke’s?
Maybe he should get a little closer to that propane tank…his foot might not hurt so much.
That tank is on a grill.might need more than a sparkler to blow it.
Looks kind of photo-shopped.
i assure you, this is not photo shopped!
Ouch! Poor kid!
burn baby, burn.
