I like the Christmas melon. I wanted to find an article on it, but I couldn't find a good one. Here is one on melons in general:

And I can't believe you all play this game over, and over, and over, and over.... and still get your jollies out of it.

But, hey, it's 876 degrees outside...and if this makes you laugh...I'm all for it!

Are you saying someone had their wicked way with Con? No worries mate, you know him. He liked it and asked for seconds.

I just can't believe they're sharing that his nickname is 'Big Red". Nor that nobody1793 knows that, and why nobody doesn't like it anymore.

Woody wrote songs about peaches. He wrote GOOD songs about peaches. And them falling to the ground..and gettin rotten. He didn't write no songs about footballs. Or deflated footballs. Why was that?

Arlo, he writes song about officers (which may have influenced so many of you nowannabeeofficers), ring around rosey rag, and pickles, and why he don't want one. Hmmm.

To be honest, I generally prefer grapefruits. Melons get ripe too quickly and lose their firmness.

Besides, you see someone coming out of the. . . . store, lugging melons around, and you think that can't be good for their backs.

Greg looks like a badass. I'd hate to be one of his students. I bet he makes them get their hair cut all the time.

Jack, someone put one through a sunroof moving up Naismith Dr. from Naismith dorm years ago. Heck of a shot. You would be happy to know it was a BMW.

My favorite kind of melon is Collie.

Confusing? That's not the half of it! My daughter is PO'ed at me right now - I told her she cantalope.

Bada Bing!

Watermelon. I even brought a bunch of chunks into work today.

Never met a melon I did not like. I have had good and bad ones. Picking them is playing roulette.

And I have fond memories of eating watermelon at in my grandparent's back yard at the picnic table in the dark on hot summer nights. Remember watermelon seeds? I almost miss them. It was fun to spit them at your sister. Sliced on a stack of news paper, served as a huge circle on a paper plate not big enough to hold it. Pass the salt. THAT is watermelon.

Which ever one is at the height of it's perfection in front of me at any given moment of course, but I wouldn't slight the others by playing favorites. For the record my store hasn't had a 'great' cantaloupe this year. Just 'that'll do if we gotta'.

the best kind? Free. And already cut up and ready to go in bite size chunks, possibly pre spiked with grey goose....that would be the MarionMelon.
