    All I can think of is stupid Ashton Kutcher saying, “Burn!”  Except he’s the one who’s retarded.

    Next year they will opt to use a padded flashlight.

    This reminds me of a deadly head on collision involving a bus going to the zoo in 1985.

    Does this make them more or less “special”?

    Those helmets are flammable.

    They needed flame-retardants; all they had was… you get it.

    Why didn’t they throw a couple of waterheads on the fire to put it out?

    Did they really need to use a real flame?  Just stick some LED’s to a stick.

    Shouldn’t that have been a flashlight from day one.

    Lesson learned.  Retards are not flame retarded.
