Limes are classified as a weapon in the UK?

What is next? Lime registration? From the UK Daily Mail:

A chef was stunned to find she was almost banned from buying two limes from a supermarket - because they could be classed as a weapon.
Marisa Zoccolan, 31, popped into the new Asda supermarket close to her home in Wallsend, North Tyneside, to pick up some groceries, including the citrus fruits.
But when she tried to pay for them at the self-service checkout, the message 'amount exceeded, authorisation required' flashed up.
An assistant then came over and told her that more than one lime was deemed a weapon - because the citric acid could be squirted in someone's eye.
Marisa, a self-employed caterer said: 'I thought they were taking the pip, but the assistant told me the same applied to lemons. . . .

ATF just classified Chore-Boy copper pot scrubbers as requiring a $200 transfer tax because copper can be used to build silencers.. Go figure.
Here is the link- It's true, folks.

I'm surprised they haven't done this with kitchen utensils yet. Or maybe they have?

There is no such prohibition against buying mulitple limes, not as an ASDA store, not anywhere in the UK.

This whole story is a hoax. It is like the sightings of Elivs still alive working at a Detroit Michigan Burger King, or tribes of humans with bat wings found in the Amazon that have appeared in the National Enquirer.

The Daily Mail is a cheap tabloid that makes no pretense at being a genuine news paper.

Apparently you don't believe in multisourcing what you present do you? Hello, healthy skepticism anyone? Fact checking before believing nonsense?
