Sit, Ubu, Sit. Good Dog.

By Wyatt Earp | June 9, 2009


Be careful when you play fetch with your dog. The results could blow you away.

BERLIN – A dog playing fetch in Germany has found and delivered to its owner a U.S. hand grenade from World War II. Police in the western town of Erkrath said Monday they were called by the dog’s 40-year-old owner who stopped walking her pooch when she recognized the “rusty” object it was carrying was a weapon. Police summoned a munitions expert Sunday to identify and defuse the grenade. ()

Interestingly enough, the dog threw the grenade over the Polish border before barking “Deutschland über alles.”

    All snark aside, there’s a lot of world war 1 ordnance that pops up in France every year, so I’m not surprised that ww2 ordnance pops up in Germany.

    As an aside didn’t some Civil War collector blow himself up a while back after digging up a cannonball?

    Lesson to be learned: unexploded ordnance is fucking dangerous.
    Mess with it yourself at your peril.
