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.

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.
