Australian prankster seriously hurt after lighting firecracker wedged in his buttocks

The 22-year-old suffered serious injuries to his backside, back and genitals at Northern Territory party

An Australian man reportedly suffered serious injuries to his backside, back and genitals after lighting a firecracker wedged in his buttocks.

According to the NT News, the man was at a party in Rapid Creek, Darwin when he attempted the stunt.

Under the headline "Bummer of an idea," the paper reported that the man was sent to a burns unit in Adelaide.

"It probably seemed like a good idea at the time." said Sr Sgt Garry Smith, of the Northern Territory Police, though many would disagree.

Really? There are times when lighting a firecracker wedged in the butt is a good idea?
