The problem with wedding and engagement rings is that they cost a FORTUNE, they carry a TON of sentimental value, and they’re SUPER easy to lose.

Back in 1995, Lena Paahlsson of northern Sweden was baking for Christmas and her wedding ring vanished.  Her family searched everywhere . . . they even pulled up the floorboards . . . but they couldn’t find it.

Now, SIXTEEN YEARS LATER, Lena was in her garden picking carrots, and found one with her RING wrapped around it.

Here’s what her family thinks happened:  The ring fell down the drain . . . they fed the contents of the garbage disposal to their sheep . . . the ring passed through the sheep’s digestive system . . . and they used the sheep’s waste to fertilize the garden.

Since the ring was part of their compost, it made it into the garden, and somehow a carrot grew RIGHT THROUGH THE RING.

Of course, 16 years have passed.  And as it goes in marriage, the ring doesn’t fit Lena’s finger anymore.  She says she’s planning to have it resized because, quote, “I had given up hope, now that I’ve found it, I want to be able to use it.”

KOOL Listener Mike had a question about the whole thing…
