This Pig Stress Toy Gets Stressed Thanks to 2,000 Matches and a Lit Fuse

Those stress toys are supposed to help relieve your angst as you squeeze and just generally abuse them. So you’d think they could stand up to a lot of stress themselves. How much? Pyrogirl aimed to find out how much this pig stress toy could take. So naturally she stuffed 2,000 match heads into it to find out.

When she lights the fuse, she sets off a chain reaction and a perfect illustration of what can happen if we let stress build up. I won’t spoil it for you, except to say that it is a lot like a cartoon character exploding after swallowing dynamite.

The video would make for a great public service announcement about managing your stress.
