A tanker crew made a startling find when they raised their ship's anchor off England's South Coast last week an old unexploded torpedo.

From what I've heard, torpedoes do not make for good eating.

I wouldn't want to be one of the handful of crewmen remaining on board "to fight any fires if the torpedo exploded."

You have to squeeze the juice out of them, but discard the body. Torpedo-juice has its fans.

Yep, my Dad was a torpedo juice fan back in 1945,
but only when mixed with Grapefruit juice…

Hopefully that was an exercise torpedo, so no warhead. It was found in an old test range, after all!

Wonder how long it took the tanker crew to unclench? evil grin
