looked like guacamole to me

Even the most innocent activities can be fraught with peril in these depraved modern times.

An item at Getty News Service reports that A 3-year-old British boy on an Easter egg hunt Saturday morning discovered a live hand grenade.

The device was on the side of a busy road next to the field where families were conducting their Easter ritual in Holford, Somerset.

According to reports in the British press, the boy was actually standing on the device when an adult spotted him.

The kid thought the grenade, unexploded World War II ordnance, was a rock.

Fortunately for us, the U.S. has not been a war zone since 1865, otherwise we'd have to sweep the area for land mines before Easter egg hunts.
