Shell shocked comes to mind...

Those terrorist bastards.

A resident found 32 live grenades? After finding the first one, I would have called somebody to come take care of it, rather than digging around for more.

"Questionable Quahogs" WBAGNFARB...

"Pyle, did you get rid of that truckload of ordinance like I asked?"

"Yes sir!"

Hence, another good name for a rock band "Exploding Clams"

Or "Exploding Driveways"

neophyte would have called somebody to come take care of it? After finding the first one, I would have called my real estate agent and asked about places that didn't have shells in the driveway.

clammunition in ordnance has residents clammoring

Anybody else thinking of Jack Webb when they read this story?

Clam shells,

75mm shells,

just bring me a truck load of shells,

as long as they are cheap.

Mother: Just wait until your father gets home!!!

KABLEWIIEE!

That'll be him now.

Crushed Clamshells would also bagnfarb - a loud one!

"No homeowners have been injured, but three servicemen from an explosive ordnance unit at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware were hospitalized last July while detonating the projectile, which contained potentially lethal mustard gas."

Yeah, well, my neighborhood has gophers!

"Some grenades were actually found inside the clams."

Big clams.

i think the best GNFARB in that article was definitely "Mollusk Munitions"

"We're worried about kids playing kick the ball in the driveway,"

That's ok. All the kids are inside playing X Box and Game Cube.

This could come in handy for the Johovah's Witnesses that keep coming around my house this time of year.

Considering that it's WW I ordanance, it's British and French origins shouldn't be surprising. The "French 75" was a common artillery piece with several armies, including our own... what really wouldn't surprise me is to find out that it all came off a returning troopship when everyone was told to dump their "souvenirs" overboard or face charges.
That would be typical of the Army or Marines.

The use of spy cam is almost as rampant as cell phones.
