This in my opinion is the gardening story of the year. When a woman's dog was attacked by a bear;
...the woman reached for the nearest object at hand on the porch's railing — a large zucchini that she had harvested from her garden.
The woman flung the vegetable at the bear, striking it and forcing it to flee.
Must have been one of those whoppers. Let's hope that this gets one of those Taiwanese Animation treatments.
(One of my favorite blogging moments: Typing "zucchini" and "bear attack" into the keywords interface.)
