Don't take grenades to lunch

Oh, Florida man. Will your hijinks ever cease?

Not satisfied with discovering the largest prime number last year, the news world's favourite hapless superhero took down an Ocala Taco Bell branch on Saturday with a bomb scare of sorts.

Though one could argue any trip to Taco Bell ends with a few explosions, CNN reported that the bloke had actually been out "magnet fishing" earlier that day and managed to hook a WWII-era hand grenade.

Like any responsible citizen, he tossed the extremely rusted deathtrap in the boot of his car and went for a burrito.

It was then that he realised he should probably tell someone and called the cops.

Police evacuated the area and a bomb squad dealt with the device. Taco Bell reopened later in the day. ®
