For one fish vendor in the Guangdong province of China, the catch of the day came with an explosive surprise, as he found a live bomb inside a squid he was preparing for a customer.
The Telegraph reported on Monday that the vendor, who identified himself as “Mr. Huang,” said the squid was caught in the shallow waters near the province before being brought to a local market.
“Perhaps he thought the bomb was his favorite food and gulped it down,” Huang told a local newspaper. “He certainly had a big belly when he was caught.”
The Daily Mail reported that Huang found the eight-inch bomb while gutting the squid, then called police.
Authorities detonated the bomb with a controlled explosion away from the market and speculated that it might have been dropped from a fighter jet, but did not say how old it was, or where it originated.
