  • 'Lethal' shell discovered

    http://www.unison.ie/irish_independe...issue_id=10106


    THE ARMY bomb disposal unit was called to deal with a potentially lethal shell which was discovered in the shed of a Dublin house yesterday.

    The 6lb shell, believed to be decades old, was found by new owners clearing out the shed of a house on Grenville Terrace, off the South Circular Road.

    The shell was taken away by the Army and is to be destroyed.

    With 50,000 men getting killed a week, who's going to miss a pigeon?

    Guns don't kill people, bullets kill people.

                  Is it named poorly then. Shells (carb, lobster,jackets) normally encase the important bit.

                    Nope, explosive shells are so named because there is a metal shell containing the explosive, to which a fuse is attached.
