Explosive Revelation

Some Schemes Always Bomb Out

This isn’t a case of hoe, hoe, hoe. Romanian firefighters were shocked to learn a farmer was using an unexploded missile as an anvil. The 122mm calibre missile, discovered by the man in his garden in Puieni village, Giurgiu county, a few months ago, had been used for sharpening hoes and scythes. The missile was destroyed in a controlled explosion by an army bomb squad.

FOOTNOTE: Out of scythe, out of mind.

Probably somewhere in the old Soviet territory there is some peasant using a hot cask of radioactive waste as a heat/cooking source.

Or as we say here, waste not want not...if I find a bomb in my garden, do I deploy it or decorate it? We all know the answer to that one.

OK, nerd patrol, arriving. That would be a BM-13/21 rocket, commonly kalled a "Katyusha". Russian/Soviet production standards being what they've always been, there were LOTS of duds left lyin' around after the Great Patriotic War.

Same sort of thing Hamas launches into Israel from wherever.

There, my work is done.
