Here’s a weird fact in life: you just never know when you’re going to hit a hand grenade. You may not know when your day will come, but you can decide what you will do if it comes, and to be clear there is a right answer and a wrong answer. Correct: call the authorities and don’t touch. Wrong: Put it in the trunk and go to Taco Bell for lunch.
And yet, that’s exactly what one man from Florida did. He was magnetic fishing in Oklawah when he found explosives, Gizmodo reports. Once he found it, he put it in his chest and headed towards Taco Bell. Like everyone.
At about 5:00 pm, he called 911 and explained the situation. Taco Bell was then evacuated to Ocala, Florida, and a field engineer was called in. The restaurant reopened after about two hours and no one was hurt. But, apparently, everyone was confused by his course of action.
The police then informed the public via social media: “It has been confirmed to be a real hand grenade from the Second World War. The sapper team retrieved the grenade without incident and said it would be disposed of properly. Taco Bell has reopened. ”
So remember, if you find a grenade, call the police – and then go to Taco Bell. On the other hand, if you find a cool Viking sword, call the museum and they can call it your name.
