An elderly German man notified police after finding an alleged undetonated World War II bomb in his garden. Luckily the police were able to disarm the bomb and bake it in a nice loaf of bread.
An 81-year-old German man called police to tell them he found a World War II-era bomb in his garden, but when officers showed up, they found a large zucchini instead.
The man found the 11-pound, 15.7-inch-long vegetable Thursday in his back yard in Bretten in the southwest German state of Baden-Württemberg. He believed it to be a bomb, but upon arrival, police said they found a dark-colored zucchini.
Officers were able to dispose of the vegetable without having to call a bomb-disposal team.
In fairness to the elderly gentleman, eating the zucchini would have caused multiple fatalities.
