    Maybe he means post 4th is the 2012 season?

    Don't need to rep the pop pops for a third time but they are at the top of the list... The naughty dog was cool... I liked the 10 meter magic whip too...

    Yeah! It's a frickin' sparkler with a frickin' whistle on it!!!

    Hint: if you think it's going to be funny to surprise someone with these, make sure you are in an open area for when they throw it down in terror, surprise!!!

    Using the criteria you used for the fountain thread, I would say that Star Balls, Disco Spinners, Dizzy Spell, Lady Bugs, Kryptonite Balls and Russian Roulette are good, but I may not completely know the definition of Novelty. I call them that though.

    1/2 case of Diamond Shooters. Fuse together with fast fuse, and attach a green visco leader. Light, and run for your life. Did this tonight after a Black Market Fireworks demo in Joplin, Mo. Son-of-a-bitch, it was cold. Saw some good Black Cat and Power Source product. Dale has the videos. Expect that he will post them in the days to come .

    Same as piquins and twister stixs. However, I have found that the twister stixs dont have as much zip in them and are much weaker in lift and sound. I dont recommend these around kids because they are unpredictable. Thats what makes them so addictive to me!

    Zingers from Red Rhino seem to be the best IMO. They have a little different sound and have more juice than the others I have shot.

    Chicken Blowing up Balloon.

    It screams like one Saturn missile and blows a balloon up out of it's butt.

    What is cooler than that?

    Thanks! They are actually even cooler if you throw them high in the air. Alamo has these too, and they were cheaper than the BC version, but the qty. on Alamo wholesale form is incorrect, I do not remember how they are packaged.

    Kellners Backyard pyro party! this is awesome, you light the single fuse, and this starts with flares, moves to whistles, crackle, spinners, and ends with a flag reminiscent of a cartoon "pow" flag.
