Hauling fireworks: more bang for your truck!
a) jelly doughnuts
b) bunny rabbits
c) designer shoes
d) highly explosive fireworks

If you DO choose this career, here’s some advice. At the gas station, go to the FULL SERVICE pump, say “Fill ‘er up,” and hurry inside to buy a bag of Cheetos. If something goes wrong, you can snack while enjoying the show through the window.
