i’m jealous of ryan and trevor oakes

I wonder if the mother of Ryan and Trevor Oakes imagined that this is what her twin boys would do when she told them to ‘go play’. Clearly she forgot to mention that  whole “don’t play with matches” thing… and I’m so glad, because look what they made! Wow.

    Oh the thinks you can do!
    What a creative idea! Smoking is so passe, it makes sense to reuse matchsticks in a creative way.
