Ka-BOOM

The Mind Boggles

Found via Google and the Reuters Oddly Enough News:

Woman Finds Brand New Grenade In Backyard (Link should open in new window, sign-in not required)

Particularly, the quote from the police spokesperson is what is quite thoroughly boggling my mind. I'm trying to visualise finding a 'spent' grenade (in the meaning of the term, spent ordnance).

Gunny McAllister (c. 1972): When you pull the pin, Mr. Grenade is no longer your friend.

Jayne: Some grenades would be nice.
