Or, WTF is THAT doing HERE ??

I've done a search and there are several threads where people have posted unusual finds but none of them seem to have taken off as THE place to post your unusual finds so maybe this will be the one, or maybe a mod could make a sticky?

I was prompted to post because of a find yesterday.
A DVR on the beach! with a Star Trek DVD still in the tray!

Not too far from it was a fire pit with all sorts of interesting stuff in it, I'd say someone has burnt what they didn't want from a burglary, there were jewelery cases, keys etc all in the fire pit.

I took a photo of the DVR but didn't get any of the fire pit.

So what is YOUR most unusual find?

Gear stick knob,  spotted while detecting.

Could see it staring at me as I retrieved it.

Didn't get a photo of either..but a well decomposed body was out of the ordinary,as was a preserved brain in a jar. Both reported to the coppers. Never had it confirmed,but I presume the brain was from an animal. Had a call from some media types about the latter and it even made it into a pommie rag..another odd one was a picnic blanket in thick bush complete with very large bra and empty port bottle..use your own imagination on that one!
