French bangers are far more powerful, one of those in a cow pat & everything for 25 yards is covered. We used to have a game where we would put a banger in a cow pat, preferably with a crust as it contains the blast better. The contestants would all have a short stick & all would have to touch the cow pat with their stick. One of us would proceed to light it.
First one to run is a homo, Last one to run away is the winner! Proper fun.
