M800 Firecracker.

World's Largest Firecracker

Field review by the editors.

Chaparral, New Mexico

A state-line fireworks store took a large storage tank, painted it red, and labeled it an "M-800," the world's largest firecracker. A fuse might help the illusion be less of a visual dud, or maybe some dummies or cardboard cutouts running away in a terror....

This gag has been done better elsewhere.
