'What if it had exploded? People would probably think ‘he was a decent bloke, but what a prat’' :D :D


A couple found an unexploded Second World War German bomb in their cellar - but waited until the next day to call the police because they did not want to wake the neighbours.

Stephen Sin, from Crystal Palace, London, discovered the explosive while cleaning out his basement on Thursday, in the house he has lived in for 15 years with his wife and children.

The 44-year-old'swife, Janice Hardy, told local paper the Croydon Guardian her husband had not even mentioned the bomb until several hours after it had been found. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/ho ... 67081.html

Maybe he should have cleaned his basement sooner? In the words of Homer Simpson: DOH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
