Gender-Reveal-Gone-Wrong Parents

These unidentified parents set all previous over-the-top gender-reveal parties ablaze by starting an actual wildfire.

Officials confirmed that the fire, which spread to burn 22,000 acres in California and killed a firefighter, was caused by a pyrotechnic device the parents-to-be had planned to use during the big reveal. Maybe we take this as a sign to finally stop forcing imagined cultural norms onto unborn children?
