Oh Wow: A Watermelon Carved Into An Interlocking Hanging Lantern

November 9, 2017


This is the watermelon that was meticulously carved into an expanding, hanging lantern by a Chinese artisan. Most impressive. And here I thought being able to spit a watermelon seed over twelve feet was impressive. FUN FACT: Did you know the record for watermelon seed spitting is 68 feet 9 and 1/8 inches? That's true. That's also more than 2/3rds the way across a basketball court. The only way I could spit a watermelon seed that far is if I'm choking on one and somebody gives me the Heimlich standing on the edge of a cliff with a strong tailwind.

Thanks to Jody, who agrees the best lantern is the electric one you use to read comic books/nudie mags with in the blanket fort you made after your parents send you to bed without dessert because you didn't eat all your vegetables.

    That is so much work for something that is going to rot

    Bet enough people would pay for one though. Time "may" pay enough for the effort...

  • Same could be said for children.

  • Jenness

    *snorts* That is so bitter. I tip my wee imaginary hat to you on this one.

    Same could be said for any surgery.

  • Meh, everything rots on a large enough timeline..
