Police are warning happy couples to please, please, please stop making pink and blue bombs after two gender-reveal party explosions were reported in Iowa during the same weekend.
Mercifully, no one is injured or dead this time, but KCCI reports that the explosion in Waukee shook homes a mile away.
If your baby gender reveal involves fire or mechanical components in any form, let me give you some advice how to do it: don’t.

The explosion happened this Sunday night—the same day that 56-year-old Pamela Kreimeyer was killed by flying shrapnel from another accidental pipe bomb in a gender reveal in Marion County.
The two explosions have authorities asking people to stop using explosives to celebrate their little ones. In 2017, an Arizona Border Patrol Agenda caused a 47,000-acre wildfire by using similar explosives in a similar celebratory fashion.
Last July, one couple’s gender-reveal event backfired when they shot pink fireworks into the faces of their guests.
Is it time to finally put the gender-reveal party to rest? Perhaps. As NewNowNext previously reported, the woman credited with originating the concept actually has a gender nonconforming child.
