A new twist on hot potato

VIDEO: Chinese Soldiers Pass The Grenade

What initiation ceremonies did you have to enjoy (endure?) at your work? Something suitably wacky and inane no doubt. Well, thank your lucky stars you’re not a recruit in the People’s Liberation Army of China.

They have to pass a live grenade (we presume it’s a live grenade) in some weird pass the parcel routine before dropping it in a hole and diving theatrically for cover. Real? Not real?

Just watch. It’s plain weird.
