This week on Florida Man Friday, it is not necessarily about the person, but rather the fact that this story happened in Florida.

Imagine taking a relaxing walk on the beach just listening to the waves, and then all of a sudden you spot a big metal bomb on the shore of Florida. Now, a few things may “go off” in your head, but I doubt one of them would be that it is fake.

Therefore, Florida beachgoers were kept away from a section of the coast at Lauderdale-by-the-Sea on Easter Sunday after the discovery of the naval mine that had washed ashore. A Broward County Sheriff’s deputy discovered the mine around 2:30 a.m. and called in the bomb squad and military authorities.

The mine was marked “inert,” which means it might have been used as a dummy mine for training purposes. The mine was safely removed and the U.S. Air Force is examining it to find out more about its origin.

By 10:45 a.m., the mine was removed, and the beach was reopened.

Only in Florida will a military bomb wash up onshore. Here’s a closer look of the mine which, funny enough, resembles the Finding Nemo mines-

Remember, there’s plenty of fish in the sea! And apparently, bombs.
