NOW THAT’S A HOT POTATO!

A shipment of potatoes headed from Germany to a Greek processing plant almost ended up arriving mashed after a pair of World War II-era grenades were tucked into the taters before they hit the delivery truck.

Workers on the washing line of the processing plant reported hearing odd sounds when the spuds hit the suds and when they checked, they found a pair of the vintage grenades swirling around in the mix.

As it happened, the grenades were, in fact, still live: A bomb squad arrived to disarm them and send the potatoes on their way to hungry consumers.

CHEESY CRIME

A Florida man wasn’t smiling when he said “cheese” to his wife — in fact, he actually sent her to the emergency room after attacking her with a box of Cheez-It crackers.

Andy Gatz was cheesed off after finding out his wife went to an Earth Day concert, so he winged a box of the snacks in her direction, hitting her square in the noggin. Normally, the six-ounce box wouldn’t have done much damage, but one of the crackers got dislodged and went into her eye.

Gatz crumbled under questioning, but insisted he only threw one cracker in her direction, not an entire box. He’s due back in court next month to answer assault charges.

TWO SHOTS, NO HANGOVER

A California man went home feeling no pain after taking two shots at a local tavern which wouldn’t be newsworthy, except for the fact that the shots came from a handgun!

The unidentified victim told cops that he and a stranger began arguing in the bar’s parking lot, but broke up the fracas before anything major happened or so he thought.

He went back to his hotel and went to sleep, but woke up the next morning and noticed his wounds, which led him to seek out police. Officers went to the bar to search for clues, and the man was taken to the hospital, where he was treated for wounds that were not life threatening.
