An 81-year-old man from Bretten, Germany contacted police in a panic last week. He thought he’d stumbled upon a decades-old bomb in his vegetable garden. It turns out the weapon of mass destruction was a huge dud.
According to experts on the scene, it was a zucchini. But an incredibly dangerous looking summer squash. It could have destroyed countless salads or vegetable lasagnas.
The local police posted a photo of the supposed “undetonated WWI device” on their Facebook page.
