I think that I’ll steer clear of potentially explosive seafood

Have your say

I was going to write about Boris Johnson’s distinctly uncomfortable appearance on The Andrew Marr Show at the weekend, until I came across the story of the squid which ate a bomb.

Yes, that’s correct. You read it right.

A fishmonger in China was cutting up a squid when he discovered that it had a live 3lb bomb inside it.

Apparently this is not as rare as one might imagine (and I imagined it to be very rare indeed).

The report went on to say that other creatures of the deep have been caught with live ammo hidden in their innards.

I always knew there was a reason that I didn’t like seafood.

One for its taste and now, two, for its potentially explosive nature.
