you know how in the cartoon when wile e. coyote realizes he's run off the edge of the cliff and does the quick double take, then falls- i know that feeling...
yes, you are looking at a yellow watermelon.
it smells like watermelon, kindda tastes like watermelon (has a yellow squash flavor to it)- which leads me to my theory-
ok bare with me... so this farmer plants all these watermelon plants in a field, but still has some room for something else, so his neighbor says, "hey i bought too many yellow squash plants- you want some?" "sure! the wife loves yellow squash," says mr. watermelon farmer, flash forward couple months and he proudly carries the first watermelon of the season in to his wife . the product of all their hard work and labor. the very thing that will put money in the bank. she slowly slices it open and then you could of heard a mouse pee on a cotton ball- yup, it's yellow. i imagine them standing there staring at the oddity. him in demin overalls, her in a flowered house dress and white apron, arm holding the knife in midair. i imagine she's the first to break the silence, "homer, whatdidyado?" looks like the squash pollen jumped row to the watermelon party. oops, what do we do now?
hey i know- sell the whole effing crop to walmart- they'll buy anyting.
yellow watermelon- looks like someone peed in it....what's next- blood red cucumbers?
