Truth in Advertising?

I was driving home this after noon after running up to Duluth, MN for a new pair of glasses and a weed whacker among other items (its the nearest city of any size).  Among the many ads for fireworks along Hwy 53 in Wisconsin was a home made hand lettered  sign for “Three Finger Fireworks” just outside of the Superior city limits.

Getting home I discover they have a Facebook page. It’s not some dark joke, these people are actually promoting the potential that the product they are sell just might remove a couple of your digits.  Think I’m joking?  Check out this picture  – I believe it’s their mascot.
