2022’s List: 15 of the Funniest Fireworks Names (PHOTOS)
When I lived in Fargo, North Dakota, I did a few broadcasts from fireworks warehouses. They have a few of them there, towns like Rochester, Minnesota buy their fireworks from these warehouses. They sell the kind of fireworks illegal for us common folk to use in Minnesota.
People with piles of money to spare would walk in, and tell one of the clerks something like, "I'm putting on a show over on the lakes for the 4th of July and need a good selection. Can you put that together for me?"
The clerk would say sure, how much do you want to spend? And honest to goodness, the answers ranged from $200 bucks to $20,000 (that was the highest I heard, anyway). The clerk would ask a few more questions, and off they'd go selecting fireworks with the funniest names I'd ever seen. Then the truck would be loaded up with enough explosives to light up a small town.
But they were just headed to their lake home...hoping they spent enough to beat Allen, across the lake, who had a great show last year. Neighbors out there competed with each other around the lakes and THAT was the best show to watch.
2022 Guide to SE Minnesota's Fireworks
Early on in my Fargo life, I was told to make friends with a lake-home owner so I could spend the 4th of July there. I failed, miserably. But the 4th fell on weekdays while I lived there, so I'd have had to say no anyway...gotta get up at the butt crack of dawn.
Speaking of Butt Crack, Butt Crackers would be a great name for the snaps you could buy at a roadside stand (FYI: In Minnesota, "biggest fireworks allowed by law" means, "these don't leave the ground").

The names of the fireworks pack are the best part of shopping, I think...so here are the names I liked most this year.
