• Start with a large carrot.
  • Use an apple-corer to cut a cylinder in the top of the carrot.
  • Pick out a cylindrical cavity in the carrot with a knife.
  • Strip down a small rocket, removing the stick and any unnecessary paper, and push into the carrot.
  • Draw a smiley-face on the carrot with a marker.
  • Push firmly into the ground
  • Light the fuse and stand well back
<p>wow!!! I LOVE IT</p>
<p>This is now my FAVORITE VIDEO OF ALL TIME!!!!!!!!!!</p><p>THANK YOU (also, if you could provide the name of the song, that would be great)!!!</p>
love it omg lol
Really? Exploding carrots?
&nbsp;WOW! HAHAHAHA! thats so cool!!! (now to blow up my enemies)
Well, if they are bunnies, this is the BEST weapon you'll ever make againist them
Why even? i know why. because this is awesome. I can see this as something that Bill Murrays charachter in Caddyshack might make to kill the gopher.
<br> Yes, that might have worked... but the gopher was rather smart.<br> <br> L<br>
Lol :) That was awesome <br>
You, of all people, should not throw stones. And it's spelled "plagiarism."
thayer country is good at it though<br />
(You have to post the link to where something was copied from) L
Lol, you owned him good.
I use the model rockets from estes (black powder)<br /> The so called 'motors' i use (C7-5) are c class and have a 7 sec burn time and then a 5 second delay until hot gas expells up the rocket blasting the parachute out.<br /> I think the hot gas in the carrot cuases the explosion<br /> <br /> ,,funny rockets, when you mess around with em', <br /> <br />
do you put the rocket in upside-down?
Yes that's it. L
Thx =)<br/>
HAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!! That was so funny!! XD
i was laughing so hard when i saw this the first time. BUT NOW I CAN MAKE IT ooooh
Firework + carrot is all you really need. L
Wait till fwjs gets ahold of this. <sup> and the women and children thought that the normal carrots he beat them with hurt</sup><br/>
You didn't have anything to do with <a rel="nofollow" href="http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/8099561.stm">THIS</a>, did you Lemonie??? <br/>
No, funny-foreigners... L
ummmmmm why????
See comment below with picture.<br/><br/>L<br/><br/><sub>(because it was something I wanted to do)</sub><br/>
It was a long time ago, and you know how <em>some people</em> like playing with fire...<br/>:)<br/><br/>L<br/>
sooooooooooooooo true
that poor poor carrot...he heh heh sucker
Very amusing, you should cap off the offending root vegetable with a green top, so it loses its head before exploding.<br/><br/><sup>watch the exploding elmo video that shows up as related to yours, its very funny</sup><br/>
I was trying to reproduce something I saw on TV... And I can't find the Exploding Elmo (bah) L
What tv show? I swear I recognize that guy.<br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jdn8gQkHyHI&amp;eurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Einstructables%2Ecom%2Fid%2FExploding%2Dcarrot%2F%3Fcomments%3Dall&amp;feature=player_embedded">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jdn8gQkHyHI&amp;eurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Einstructables%2Ecom%2Fid%2FExploding%2Dcarrot%2F%3Fcomments%3Dall&amp;feature=player_embedded</a><br/>
Oh thanks - that <em>is</em> my sort of stupidity. The guy is Ade' Edmondson the show is <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yIosY1BfcEg">Bottom</a><br/><br/>L<br/>
I would probably put less in so it's more of a splat and less of a complete obliteration. I have to try this sometime :D
I was using a rocket, and carrots don't have much structural strength in tension. Do post a video! L
Hmmm Whats the big deal with this??? I put gunpowder in lots of fruits and vegetables before... ;D
Then I'd like to see some videos! It's not a big deal, just mildly amusing. L
I have one of an apple and one off a melon... When I get the time I will upload the apple video... the melon last for about 4 mins and my upload rate is very very slow so I will just upload the 1. one...
Yeah, I'd love to see that. Can you edit / recompress the video to make it smaller? L
I will try... :P
hahahahahaha. lol. hilarious
:D<br/><br/>I <em>have</em> to film that in high speed!<br/>
Yes! (it's easy to do if you can get the firework) L
What kind of rocket/ firework is it?
It was a small and cheap type of rocket (from Lidl I think) - just went up then <strong>bang!</strong>. Plastic case, something other than black powder in the motor, not sure about the explosive charge, that might have been black powder.<br/><br/>L<br/>
Hmm... Well, I have this jumbo something or other. It says "emits showers of sparks," though. If not, I'll have to wait 'till the Fourth.
. Look for ones that say "with report."
. Did your parents have any normal children?
