4th of July cookout and illegal fireworks

4th of July cookout and illegal fireworks – This is *not* the best way to avoid getting caught by the police for illegal fireworks.

One year, Johnny’s family was having an “extended family” 4th of July cookout at their home. One of the special treats that year was the lighting of the fireworks (Roman candles, bottle rockets, missile batteries, etc.) that they had bought out of state (they’re illegal in Johnny’s home state).

Just before they were to arrive, a cousin called, saying their neighbor’s plans had just fallen through, and could they bring them along to the picnic — they even had extra food to bring. “Sure, the more the merrier!”

Upon arrival and meeting of their cousin’s neighbor, it is discovered that he’s a police officer. The father turns as innocently as he can to Johnny, and whispers to him to grab the paper bag of fireworks sitting in the kitchen and hide them somewhere quickly. Johnny disappears, and the father changes the topic to food for the day. This family had brought some chicken to grill, so the father tells them the gas grill is all set to use out back – just turn on the gas and push the ignition button with the lid still closed.

They head out to the back as Johnny comes back in through the front door. The father hurries to him and says “Whew, that was close! That man’s a police officer, and he almost saw the fireworks. Did you hide them really well?”

Johnny replied, “Yes, Dad, nobody will ever think to look in the grill!”
