English term or phrase: DayGo bombs
Context is a list of in this case forbidden fireworks: fireworks, DayGo bombs, firecrackers, Roman candles. Is there a German name for this?
Jutta
German translation:Dago bombs
Explanation:
Hi Jutta, here's some kind of explanation:
http://www.pyrouniverse.com/forum/archive/index.php/t-4344.h...

DayGo bomb = Dago bomb [Single shot aerial bombs that were used around 30+ years ago]; supposedly from Italy with 'Dago' being a bastardization of 'Diego' to describe badly integrated Italian migrants (?) to the US.

Apparently DayGo bombs respectively Dago bombs are banned pretty much in all states: http://delcode.delaware.gov/title16/c069/index.shtml
(DayGo; Delaware)

or
http://www.belton.org/Fireworks Ordinance.htm
(Dago; Missouri).
