'course it'll explode & stick to the walls

I'd better stop having second helpings of spaghetti at dinner.

This will definitely go right to Uranus.

This is a disaster waiting to happen. Back in the rocket craze of the 50's, my neighbor friend and I built a rocket using a cardboard tube and fueled with hundreds of kitchen match heads we had shaved off for fuel. We added fins, made a fuse and invited lots of people to watch our launch. That rocket blasted straight up for about six feet, turned to level flight and shot square through the open window of the neighbor's chicken house where it exploded and caught fire. Later, after the firetrucks left, we were both grounded until age 30. No, I won't be making one of these.

Stop giving away our secrets~! The squirrels have eyes and ears everywhere!

And there's no reason for so much pasta to be in civilian hands.
