look up any word, like cunt:
 
1.
A tube firework similar to the M-80, but containing 1.5 grams of flash powder (as opposed to an M-80's 3 grams). Silver Salutes are, of course, silver in color, about 2 inches long, and have their fuses on the side of the tube, not the top.
"Hey, we're gonna go off with some M-80s, Silver Salutes and cherry bombs for some 4th Of July fun!"
