Pyrotechnic Prophylactic

Ralph, a listener on KQED, writes…

“During your recent broadcast involving lists (beers of the world, languages, et al), your listing of various kinds of pyrotechnics (‘Falling Leaves,’ ‘Peony,’ etc.) left out my favorite, that I once found in a catalog of Chinese fireworks. It was translated into english as ‘Monkey Violates The Heavens.’  I’ve never witnessed one of these going off, but I’m sure that it is spectacular (and I would be sure to wear a wide-brimmed hat, just in case.)

But keep up the great work, just the same!”
