WEIRD NEWS: A Boom in Meat Sales
Cops in New Mexico are looking into the delivery of an unusually high-caliber parcel of meat – which included a loaded handgun and seven rounds of ammunition.
The meat, which appears to have been packaged and frozen more than a year ago, originated at a plant in Colorado and was delivered to a supermarket last week. When an employee tore into the case to ready the ribs for sale, he found the semi-automatic tucked inside the frozen meat and quickly called cops – but not before accidentally wiping off whatever fingerprints might have been on the thing.
A police spokesman says "You hear of people finding frogs in their salad or weird stuff like that, but never heard of this one." (MSNBC)
