And finally… sex bomb
A hand grenade discovered in a German forest, leading to a full-scale bomb disposal operation, has turned out to be a rubber sex toy.
Police were alerted to the possible explosive after it was spotted by a woman jogging through the forest near the Bavarian city of Passau, DW reports.
However, officers eventually identified the grenade as a rubber toy – conspicuously stored with condoms and an empty tube of lubricant.
In a statement yesterday, police said an internet search confirmed their suspicions of the rubber grenade’s purpose.
“There actually are sex toys in the shape of hand grenades, and that was the kind of thing we were dealing with here,” a spokesperson said.
