Peterborough ON — A late afternoon blast leveled a house this past weekend in what police are calling a gender reveal party gone wrong. This is just the latest in party disasters where people are injured and even killed while finding out whether they are having a boy or a girl.
The homeowner, and father to be, sat outside his collapsed house and stared in shock and disbelief. He terribly wanted a boy but the smoke coming from the house was clearly pinkish/purple signaling that they were expecting a girl. “This was not how this was supposed to end, it was supposed to be a blue explosion,” the father told investigators. The mother was seen being checked out by paramedics with a huge smile because she always wanted a girl.
The father told police that he created an explosive device that a friend filled with a surprise color. He had no idea that the explosion would be as big as it was but the shockwaves from it were nothing compared to finding out it’s going to be a girl. The officer asked why they needed an explosion when they could have just asked the doctor. The father responded that he didn’t know that was an option.
The police are expected to finish the investigation this week at which time they can start rebuilding immediately. If all goes well, their new baby girl will have a nice comfortable space to deal with that fact that her parents are complete numbskulls.
