An 81-year-old man reported an unexploded WWII bomb in his front yard that turned out to be a large zucchini.

A German man alerted the police to what he thought to be an unexploded World War II-era bomb in his garden, but it turned out to be a large zucchini. When the 81-year-old man reported the large dark object in his yard as a bomb, a police bomb squad was called to respond.

The zucchini, which was decidedly not a bomb, measured 16 inches in length and weighed about 11 pounds. Police reportedly believe that someone must have thrown it into the man’s garden.
