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.
