Olginate - It can be a little disconcerting when your food literally explodes in your hands, as witnessed by a lady in northern Italy. An artichoke she had just purchased exploded shortly after she got it home.
The lady bought the artichoke in Olginate, a village in Italy's Lombardy region. She took it home and started slicing it when it exploded.
Il Messaggero (Italian language) reported that the woman was "rendered speechless" by the explosion. She immediately went to her husband and daughter, who then decided to phone the local police along with the supermarket where she bought the artichoke.

What ARE they using for fertilizer over there?
