Fireworks Fail

Apparently the San Diego 4th July fireworks display suffered a technical fault last night (either that, or the organisers were just in a hurry to get home), causing all of the fireworks to launch simultaneously and turning what should have been an eighteen-minute show into a frenetic 60-second wham-bam-thank-you-ma’am:

 

According to the local coast guard, the technical term is “premature ignition”.

Hmm.
