The woman arrived at the police station on Bob Crowell Road at 12:48 p.m., police said. They said she wanted to get rid of a World War II hand grenade a relative had given her on Thanksgiving.

You can pick your friends, but you can't pick your relatives

I can't wait to see what she gets for Christmas.

What she really wanted was an M1 carbine...

The grenade was named “Dennis”? Is there a missing apostrophe? (“Dennis’ grenade”) Can this be called a “Menace”?

Also, check the sidebar--some of the houses in Cape Cod aren't Cape Cods!

Blast us, O Lord, ......

*Snork* at Meanie!

That family is such a blast!

DAVE, was't that going to be one of your selections this year in your Christmas present column?

Who's Dennis Grenade and why is the bomb squad after him?

Key quote (just a fragment of the story): "Police asked people to call in an explosive device instead of actually bringing it to the station."

I suggested that a really good holiday PSA would be to include the same information as bonmot quoted, but did I get posted? No.

"Oh, Lord, bless this, thy hand grenade, that with it thou mayst blow thy enemies to tiny bits..."

All that fuss over a tiny little hand grenade makes me wonder how the heck I'm ever going to get rid this Galactric Inter-dimensional Neutron Temporal Deploder my brother-in-law gave me.

She said, "Just bring fruit", so he brought a pineapple.

Yeah, keep your grenades at home in your apartment. Don't bring them to our nice police station.

Dare I live the American dream and give a grenade to my mother-in-law? Nah, she'd just re-gift it.
