The Worst Thing To Happen To Hot Air Balloons Since Alvin & The Chipmunks

By 12.06.12

I don’t know what’s going on in Myanmar, and I don’t know why they have something called a Fire Balloon Festival, but apparently it involves setting up a hot air balloon, then f**king it up so spectacularly that it descends in a ball of fire and sets off a bunch of fireworks, killing everyone. It’s just like that scene in O Brother Where Art Thou? where the police wagon catches fire and all the ammo fires on its own, only … less believable?
