Today's Doofus is from Siberia.
Police in an east Siberian town have found over 1,000 artillery shells hoarded by a local resident in his vegetable garden, the Zabaikalsky Territory's police department said.
The 30-year-old unemployed resident of Nerchinsk gathered the explosives after a military ammunition storehouse outside the town caught fire in 2001. The shells had been dispersed over a 20 km radius by explosions during the fire, a police spokesman said.
The arsenal also includes mines, grenades and other explosive material. The man told police he had gathered the ammunition to sell it as metal scrap.

Sell it as scrap??? I'd have loved to watch (from a safe distance) as the scrap metal dealer tried to take that lot apart!
