Torpedo Washes Up On German Beach

By Wyatt Earp | September 18, 2008

How ironic would it have been if it struck a German frigate and exploded?

BERLIN, Germany — Police say a 13-foot (four-meter) German torpedo from World War II has washed up on a beach along the Baltic coast.

Luebeck police spokesman Detleff Riedel says the torpedo was found early Wednesday by a cleaning crew at Timmendorf Beach. Police secured the area and explosives experts were called.

Experts say it is a German torpedo made during World War II. Only the midsection fuel tank washed ashore. The explosive warhead was not attached.

Riedel says the torpedo has been taken away for further examination. (H/T - CNN)

What Riedel really meant was that it would be taken into storage for the next time the Germans get drunk and decide to invade Poland.

    How much you want to bet they will blame the “stupid” Americans for not thinking about the long term consequences of their strategy to defeat Hitler?

    I really thought you were going to make a Mr. Limpet comment too.

    They don’t make them like that anymore.
