Exploding rat

Exploding Rat wishes you all a rad weekend.

The idea for the 'exploding' rat - now immortalized as legend - was developed in 1941. The aim was to blow up the enemy's boilers by lying the rat on the coal beside the boiler, with the fuse being lit when the rat was shoveled into the fire. They were never used, as the first consignment was seized by the Germans and the secret was blown.
