You know those “hoverboards” that are all the rage nowadays? Yeah, the ones that were so hot this holiday season that they’re bursting into flames and almost killing Kris Kringle.

The best part is that you can hear “Daddy, I don’t want you to fall” in the background. But Tyson’s too distracted by his own giggling and amusement to listen. That’ll be the last time he doesn’t heed such warnings.
