Fire, Ambulance and Police : Old Ammunition
A couple came to the police department, wanting to dispose of some
ammunition. They handed the desk officer a wooden box and said that it
contained two shells an uncle had given them as souvenirs from World War
"We didn't know what to do with them," the woman explained. "So all
these years, we've kept the shells in the bottom drawer of the china
cabinet, away from our children."
The officer assured the couple he'd dispose of the ammunition safely.
But when he took one out of the box the top came off, revealing a
strange black substance. His suspicions aroused, the officer removed the
top of the other shell and found a hard white substance.
There was no doubt about it. They were souvenir salt and pepper shakers.
