Man finds bomb in garden, calls police; turns out it’s just a zucchini

That’s a relief – and a great addition to dinner! 😉

A German man feared a monster courgette he found in his garden was an unexploded World War Two bomb and called the police.

The 5kg (11-pound) courgette had probably been thrown over a hedge into the 81 year old’s garden, police said.

Luckily no evacuation was required in Bretten, a town near Karlsruhe in south-west Germany.

The 40cm (16-inch) vegetable – also called zucchini – “really did look like a bomb”, police said.

Once police had reassured him following the early morning call-out, the pensioner disposed of the courgette himself.
