Diamond-Encrusted Grenades -- April Fool's Day, 1996
Russia's Itar-Tass news agency reported that a military factory had begun manufacturing diamond-encrusted grenades, which it was selling to Russian gangsters who might be concerned that they could not only live glamorously but also "die luxuriously as well." The article noted, "The use of such a grenade will leave your one-time rival in a sea of beautiful sparkling gems rather than in a pool of blood."

Am I the only one to consider the fact that there would still be blood, as well as dismembered body parts and the diamonds would be shattered into shards with the explosion?Posted by Genasai on Thu Dec 06, 2007 at 01:41 AM
