Finding ordnance

In the street. And, supposedly, it was a missile.
A missile was found in the middle of a street in West Bexar County Thursday morning.

The missile was discovered around 9:00 a.m. at the intersection of Firefox Den and Barking Wolf, near Loop 1604 and Marbach Road.

Bexar County officials said the missile, which was 16" to 18" long, was used for training purposes and was not a 'live.'
(from WOAI-TV)

I don't know, a foot and a half seems a bit short to be a "missile". I know that it's possible something that size could be guided, and then, therefore, a missile. But that sounds more like a rocket.

Either way, it's not something you would expect to find in the street, whether it is "a 'live'" or not.

I don't know. I don't want to say bad things about that area, but finding rockets, missiles, dynamite or bodies wouldn't surprise me.

I s'ppose if a missile could go missing,
And a rocket could reaLLy be a rock,
But of aLL the things I thought I knew,
If it might be a gun
I doubt it is a gnu.
