Exploding Toaster Vine Shows Why Your Mum Was Right All Along (VIDEO)

Remember all those things you mum told you not to do as a kid?

Don't run with scissors. Don't use a hairdryer in the bath. Don't stick a knife in the toaster.

Remember, idiots like this put their lives at risk so you don't have to.

The full-length video can be viewed below and has started a healthy debate on YouTube about fuses, explosive-filled toasters and - perhaps surprisingly - religion.

And did we tell you? DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME!
