    The Things You Can Find At Goodwill These Days

    Loaded grenade launcher left at Florida Goodwill store

    Someone donated a loaded grenade launcher at a Goodwill store in Florida. The employees at that store didn't know what it was, so they sent it to another store where it was recognized.

    That's wild, might have been from a garage clean out,, who knows. Most of those Floridians are ex- New Yorkers. They have a tendency to put things away and then "Fuhgeddaboutit"

    No pic of the launcher, therefore it never happened.

    Sometimes I have to wonder how mankind has survived this long.
