Not only a prig would object to 10 grenades and a pig

February 8, 2012 |  6:20 am

It sounds like the title of the worst Dr. Seuss book ever. Or the latest prime-time vehicle for a misbehaving Charlie Sheen. Or the bitter memoir of an aging Black Panther:

Ten grenades and a pig.

In fact, it was none of those things, but a partial list of the weird haul police took out of a Miami home they paid a visit to Tuesday after responding to a fight between neighbors, according to the Miami Herald.

The grenades were the most significant cause for alarm, prompting the officers to evacuate nearby homes, reroute traffic and call in the bomb squad.

A local TV station, WPLG, reported that the call to police actually came after the out-of-state man who owned the home showed up and found, to his surprise, a man and a woman in their mid-30s living inside.

That brought the list to two squatters, 10 grenades and a pig.

The man and woman were arrested after they were found to be in possession of drugs and a weapon.

Altogether now: one handgun, marijuana, cocaine, 10 grenades, two squatters and a pig.

The grenades were taken to a lab to be analyzed.

No word on what happened to the pig.
