A man in China has cheated death for 25-years when he recently discovered that his tool of choice for cracking walnuts was actually a hand grenade.
The villager from Ankang, in China’s Shaanxi province, noticed that his good ol’ nut cracking tool had a striking resemblance to a hand grenade on a leaflet that local police were giving out warning against the use of illegal explosives.
Huanqiu reported that the weapon had been given to him by a mate and had not detonated according to police, who had no idea whether it still contained explosives.
It didn’t take long for people to start commenting on the villager’s lucky escape.
One person asked: ‘He persisted to snack on walnuts for 25 years?’
While another commented: ‘Why would a friend gift him a bomb?’
And another said: ‘It’s more stable than a Samsung phone.’
It is unknown if the man has made alternative arrangements for cracking his nuts.
