Why, wash it in the sink, of course.
If you find a bomb in your garden you should probably not take it inside and wash it in your sink like a woman from Norfolk did.
Carole Longhorn, 66, from Melton Constable, decided to take the live unexploded bomb into her house to the shock of her husband Clive.

well, obviously, it was dirty. what was she supposed to do?

when i find unexploded ordnance from WWII in my garden, i usually tap on it with a hammer first to make sure it's not too corroded to wash. that's where she went wrong, IMO.

Dig it up, set it in a field, invite a few friends, shoot it with a 30-06 and have a hell of a time.

Now to me, what she did might be understandable. It was the husband who knew what it was and put a plastic thingy over it for safety part of the story that I find amusing.

Why not wash it? I'm guessing that a decades-old bomb that didn't go off in all that time, including the time it took for the woman to dig it up...probably isn't going to go off in the sink.

That's a really stupid guess.

If you're right, you have a clean bomb.
If you're wrong, you no longer have a house.
but, then, you no longer need one.
