95: Fireworks Factory!

The Cover: A photo taken at our New Year's party 2004. I think the camera thought the flash was on but it wasn't!
The title "Fireworks Factory" comes from the episode of The Simpsons "Itchy & Scratchy & Poochie": During an I&S short, there's a delay in the plot where Milhouse whines "When are they going to get to the fireworks factory?!"
