I had to laugh at this news report.
Police in Bretten in the southern German state of Baden-Württemberg received an alarming phone call on Thursday. An 81-year-old man told them he had found an unexploded World War II bomb in his back garden.
After arriving on the scene, police were surprised to find a 40-centimeter-long (15.7 inches) dark zucchini that, in the officers' own words, "really did look like a bomb."
Concluding the 5-kilogram vegetable presented no threat to the public or the immediate vicinity, police decided to call off deploying its Explosive Ordnance Disposal Service.
There's more at the link, including a photograph of the "explosive" in question.
Police assume that a passerby dumped the giant zucchini over the man's back fence in an attempt to dispose of it. If zucchini season over there is anything like it is in parts of the USA, one has to really try hard to avoid being "gifted" baskets and boxes of zucchini by one's neighbors, desperate to get rid of the overflow from their gardens! When Miss D. worked at a major company near Nashville, TN, she said she had to be sure to lock her car doors and close all her windows when she went to work, otherwise she'd come back to find bags and boxes of zucchini "donated" by her colleagues all over her back seat.
Oh, well. At least the average zucchini doesn't explosively disassemble itself!
