Gender reveals have gotten pretty bland as of late. No guy wants to go to some overdone party to cut open a cake to figure out if he’s going to be a relaxed dad or an over-protective dad. Women caught on and started switching it up, and soon we saw every guy swinging a baseball bat at a ball full of colored powder. This couple really stepped it up, though:
Ashley Sterkel let her husband Jon shoot at an explosive target, a target that would explode with the color of their baby’s gender. While Jon loved the explosion, as you can tell by him yelling “IT’S A BOY!!!!”, it seems that his neighbors did not. The Sterkel’s were cited with a misdemeanor Monday morning. Apparently, some people miles away heard the explosion and called the cops because their dogs were terrified. Now I don’t know about Nebraska, but here in the backwoods of Virginia, you don’t rat out a neighbor because you hear an explosion. That’s messed up. Rednecks like to blow shit up; that’s science.
What started as a fun plan to get Jon involved in the gender reveal has now resulted in him facing a year in jail and up to a $1,000 fine. My man was just trying to shoot some guns and find out the gender of his child, and now he’s a criminal? Something’s not right with that. I’m on your side, Jon. Congrats..
