Enjoy some screeching bean burritos. You can also watch it here.
A massive fireball that engulfed people scooping up fuel spilling from a pipeline ruptured allegedly by thieves in central Mexico has killed 66 people and badly burned several others.
Hidalgo State Governor Omar Fayad said on Saturday that the death toll has risen to 66.
Early morning on Saturday, forensic technicians were seen working at the site in the town of Tlahuelilpan in Hidalgo State following the massive explosion late on Friday.
Fires caused by tapping have occurred before, but seldom with the scale and horrifying death toll of Friday’s fire in the state of Hidalgo, which came as people collected the spilled liquid in buckets, plastic jugs and rubbish cans.
The leak was caused by an illegal pipeline tap in the small town of Tlahuelilpan, about 100 kilometres north of Mexico City, according to state oil company Petroleos Mexicanos, or Pemex.
Video footage showed dozens of residents in an almost festive atmosphere as whole families gathered in a field as a geyser of fuel spouted dozens of feet into the air from the tap.
The footage, accessed by the Associated Press news agency, then showed flames shooting high into the air against a night sky and the pipeline ablaze. Screaming people ran from the flames, some themselves burning and waving their arms.
Smart Mexican engineer scientists failed to predict flammable substances could potentially catch fire, especially when manipulated by a swarm of bean people.
At first they were like:
This video is from before the explosion. Soldiers looking on as villagers fill up on gasoline from the illegally tapped pipeline. National media are saying the community had suffered shortages.

But then they were like:
Everyday Mexicans will steal anything if the chance presents itself. The people from the videos are average beaners, not criminal masterminds. They see gibs, they approach.
Leaving unattended valuables near Mexicans is a racist and xenophobic act designed to turn them into criminals. They just can’t resist the pull of the gibs, which is why we should keep them honest and law-abiding by stopping all gibs.
Right now Mexicans enjoy a plethora of American gibs. From Asylum gibs, detention camp gibs, and human rights gibs, to job and social aid and other gibs that should be for Americans.
It must be stopped.
