30-year-old Li from Heilongjiang, China got dumped by his girlfriend last week. He kept trying to get her to take him back, but she wouldn't do it, so he got desperate on Monday.

Li told her if she didn't take him back, he was going to set off a bomb that would blow up her and her family. He even sent her a picture of the bomb to show he wasn't bluffing.

But he was bluffing, because it wasn't actually a bomb. Li just wrapped some sausages in packing tape to look like sticks of dynamite.

His plan fell apart when his sister saw the "bomb" and didn't realize it was fake, so she called the cops. Li was arrested for endangering public security.
