Will Al-Qaeda’s next tool of mass destruction be rhubarb chutney?

This weeks strange news from http://www.telegraph.co.uk

Exploding rhubarb chutney wrecks retirement flat


From the article:

” The homemade preserve blew up in the fridge, ripping the door off of its hinges and rocking Margaret Goodwin’s flat as she lay asleep at 7am in the morning.

When she went to see what the “bomb” was she found that her family photographs has been smashed by the fridge door as it was flung across the kitchen, knocking a chunk from the wall.

The explosion had also temporarily lifted the ceiling, leaving cracks in the top of the wall, living room and porch, and blew the casing off an extractor fan.

The rhubarb chutney, a gift from a friend, had exploded when gas fermented and built up inside the glass jar.

“If I had been standing in the way, it would probably have killed me” said Mrs Goodwin.”


Gee Wiz folks, I figured if some food item was high risk for being explosive it might be baked beans or alike. Will terror cells begin mailing rhubarb chutney? Will secret service start making people that google rhubarb chutney “person’s of interest?”  Will I need a permit to plant rhubarb? Gasp!

Happy Sunday folks!
