    Kinda sure locales with aluminized fire suits on hand, are free of safety flip-flops.

    Sparks tell me iron, likely cast; not steel, unless very high carbon.

    Remember that guy who smashed fruit with a sledgehammer? It wasn't a great idea to get front row seats. Seems like that same advice applies here.

    Gallagher and the Sledge-O-Matic! Only the first show were surprised inductee's; it quickly became a cult of sorts, premiums paid for those seats. They wore trash-bags cut with arm and neck holes. He bought the ripest melons available, for effect.
    Tons of fun, rowdy shows.
