An Explosive Situation
Patrick & Philip go to an auction of their old Army regiment. They want to bid on the Polo cup their team almost won so many years ago. They make a note of the item number & go to the hotel across the road for a quick drink. The attendant notices the item no (16) has fallen over & places it up the right way. (91) When Patrick & Philip return,the bidding has started & keen to secure the cup, raise the bid from 4 pounds to 40 pounds.! When no one else bids the item is theirs. However they don't realise they've just paid 40 quid for old boots,tin hats & gas masks.! When the goods are delivered Patrick wants to send them all back, Anna finds a hand grenade in the box & Patrick thinks it's for demonstration purposes & shows her how it works by pulling the pin. Patrick & Philip toss it back and forth to one another with Philip holding it last. That's when they discover it's real & Patrick rings the Army to say he's found a live grenade.! The Army man tells them not to pull the pin, Patrick say's it's to late for that & takes the grenade & throws it into the back garden. H.G. fetches it back. Patrick & Philip again toss it back & forth until the doorbell rings & they think it's the bomb squad. A man selling encyclopaedia's is at the door & quickly runs away. Philip tosses the grenade just when the army arrives & run into the house. The grenade explodes under the army jeep,destroying it a BIG thank you to LB who made this synopsis possible.moreless
