German police find 'WW2 bomb' was big courgette

A German pensioner 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.

A big courgette!?! He had a marrow escape.


Could've been worse, he could've baked a WWII bomb he'd dug up, thinking it was a zucchini.
