Why did Darwin man stick a lit firework in his butt?
Senior Sergeant Garry Smith has told us: “It probably seemed like a good idea at the time.” The policeman added that Bowden could be fined $282 for letting off fireworks.
From his hospital bed in the Royal Darwin Hospital burns unit, Bowden tells us:
“I had a few lads up from Queensland and I had to put on a good show. I just had a few beers with the boys and let off a few firecrackers. And I put one in my arse. It didn’t burn my balls or my back. Just my fingers and my arse. It was a pretty loose one, hey.”
“You can’t sit here crying.”
Better to weep from the anus up…
