Funny thing about firecrackers -- they EXPLODE. So why would you purposely put one in your pocket and light it?
The fellow in this recently posted video perhaps could arrive at an answer if he weren't in such pain after apparently pulling the stunt.
After the small explosion, the man's leg looks like an asteroid hit it. His friend calls him a "dopey bastard."
According to LiveLeak, he did it on a dare. The site also says the questionable decision went down in Grimsby, England.
Before you watch footage of the incident, we caution you not to try this at home or anywhere else. Seriously.
