Dis­pen­sary Cor­ner

Pharmacy Daily - - NEWS -

AN ELDERLY gen­tle­man in Ger­many clearly needs to boost his fa­mil­iar­ity with veg­eta­bles, af­ter mis­tak­ing a large zuc­chini in his gar­den for an un­ex­ploded bomb.

The 81-year-old found the “mon­ster veg­etable” in his yard near Karl­sruhe one morn­ing last week and called po­lice, who re­sponded im­me­di­ately.

Of­fi­cers said the 5kg, 40cm long zuc­chini (pic­tured) “re­ally did look like a bomb” but didn’t call for the ord­nance dis­posal ser­vice af­ter ver­i­fy­ing its veg­etable sta­tus.

They said it must have been thrown over the man’s fence by a per­son or per­sons un­known.

HAL­LOWEEN fans in the USA were thrilled last Tue night when a baby Franken­stein was born.

Not ac­tu­ally a re­an­i­mated mon­ster cre­ated in the lab­o­ra­tory of an evil ge­nius, but a new­born named Oskar Gary Franken­stein, who ap­peared af­ter a 14 hour labour at Win­ter Park Memo­rial Hos­pi­tal near Or­lando, Florida.

Baby Franken­stein, son of Kyle and Jes­sica Franken­stein, weighed 3.25kg and was 50cm long, with grandma Jen­nifer Franken­stein say­ing she was “su­per ex­cited”.

Oskar is her first grand­child and the fam­ily’s first baby born on Hal­loween - although her 13 year old daugh­ter hap­pens to share the same bith­day as Mary Shel­ley, au­thor of the novel Franken­stein.
