The story even made it past the summerhelp at the newsdesk at Norway's largest paper (Aftenposten).
They reported it as a 500 kg. cannonball. About time to increase the salaries so that they can afford someone that can convert pounds to kilos and maybe get someone who knows their Donald Duck to know what a WRECKING ball is.
