A live bomb was discovered inside a squid at a fish market in Jiaoling County on Sunday, Guangzhou Daily reports. It turned out the squid had swallowed it. Police later carried out a controlled explosion.

It kind of does look like a fish

When the seller was gutting the squid at a market in Jiaoling County in northeastern Guandong, in front of customers, he discovered a hard object inside the squid. He ended up pulling out a bomb, which was about 20 centimetres long and weighed 3 jin (approximately 1.5kg).

The sherriff’s department later confirmed it was an active bomb and carried out a controlled explosion.

The seller, Mr. Huang, speculated that the squid had swallowed the bomb thinking it was a fish.

That squid, which was more than a metre in length, truly led a charmed life until it was caught, sold to a market and gutted.
