Sassy Liberty AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS –

Police officers were summoned to an 81-year-old man’s home in Bretten, in southwest Germany due to reports of an unexploded World War II bomb….except it was not a bomb. What was the object? Well, apparently it was actually a very dark green, 11-pound and 16-inch long squash.

Unexploded bombs from World War II era are fairly common to unearth in Germany during construction work. This often times causes local authorities to have to evacuate tens of thousands of residents while they work to defuse the unexploded bomb to avoid any unnecessary injury or potential loss of life.

August 2017 saw some 70,000 people forced to leave their homes in one of the largest evacuations in post-war Germany when an unexploded World War II-era bomb with the nickname “Blockbuster” was discovered. “Blockbuster” weighed some 4,000 pounds and was capable of destroying an entire city block by itself.

Police confirmed in a statement that it was easy to see why the man thought the zucchini may have actually been a bomb as it really and truly did look just like one. They believe it may have been thrown into a garden over the hedge line.

LOL!

Between the years of 1940 and 1948, the United States and British air forces dropped some 2.7 million tons of bombs on Europe and half that amount again on Germany.  By the time the Nazi g0vernement surrendered in May 1945, the industrial infrastructure of the Third Reich was crippled and crumbling with dozens of cities across Germany were reduced to nothing more the mass destruction and rubble.

The rebuilding of Germany following World War began almost immediately, yet as many as 10% of the bombs dropped over Germany by Allied aircraft had failed to explode.  As both East and West Germany rose up from the devastation caused by the 3rd Reich thousands upon thousands of unexploded airborne bombs were discovered. This is not even taking into consideration of the also necessary removal of innumerable hand grenades, bullets, as well as mortar and artillery rounds left behind as the war ended. Now it has become the responsibility of police bomb-disposal technicians and firefighters across Germany to defuse these bombs and keep from hurting innocent people as a result.

Even today some 70 years after the war has ended there are more than 2,000 tons of unexploded munitions that are uncovered throughout Germany every single year. As a precaution, Germany requires that any project begins the ground must be labeled cleared of unexploded bombs and various another wartime firepower. So as wild as it sounds to have discovered the 11 pound, 16-inch long zucchini and report it as a “bomb” given the resemblance to the zucchini for everyone’s safety.
