Fruit Ninjas! They DO Exist!

Two shopkeepers are in hospital after being attacked with a machete in a "mini-riot" which is reported to have involved up to 20 men armed with fruit and vegetables.
A witness, who saw the fight from the top deck of the number. 50 bus, said: "We saw these men running around with vegetables. It looked like a mini-riot....
The witness, who asked not to be named, said she did not immediately recognise the vegetable but after looking it up online thought it was an oyster plant.
She added: "A couple of guys also had a melon that they were throwing."
Yes, it's further details on this news story.

Further, utterly hilarious, details...

Bizarre. You'd think that the men from J & J Halal Butchers would have plenty of weapons to hand with which to frighten off a man with a machete.

The moral of the story seems to be "never bring a knife to a fruit fight."

I'll get my coat ...

@Capt and Henry Crun

... then, I eat the banana, thus disarming him.

Are you allowed to take bananas to soccer matches, and if not, is this the reason?

Croydon is truly blessed, being so enriched not only by people celebrating the religion of peace, but by those who come from the cradle of mankind.

Was one of them a black belt carroty expert? Did any one get kicked in the plumbs?

Fruit can do a lot of damage if inserted wrongly.

Classic. Ever seen the American movie Animal House? Sounds like a scene right out of that!

Quite!

"Did any one get kicked in the plumbs?"

Heh!

"...every day I read on here yet another reason to thank God I no longer live in London."

And, sadly, there's always more...
