Trident watermelon twist

I know I know: 2 watermelon items in 1 wk. But there’s clearly a big picture issue here. i.e. someone neglected to send the memo warning of the big watermelon trend looming for '06. Cuz here’s another $#! watermelon gum: Trident Watermelon Twist. Break it down and it’s actually a "tangy mix" of watermelon + cantaloupe + honeydew. (two more weird flavors for gum, F U ask me). Meanwhile, the west coast co. that markets those mini personal-size w-melons (the ones approx the size of a Pamela Anderson breast, go on, hit link for EZ thrills) is releasing a bottled w-melon juice to encourage yr-round w-melon-age. Watermelon's said 2 B high in lycopene, the ingredient in tomatoes that helps prevent cancer.

OK. STOP it with all the hoo-hah about my visit with the "in-laws." If I'm going to waste my valuable time being nice to these people and they don't like it, it's their loss. I mean, hell, I'm about the same age as Katie's father, so you think he'd understand why she's the perfect vessel for my offspring. He's a "doctor," for Ron's sake. But no, he has to be a prick about it. So, for the good of my child, I'm forbidding Katie from ever seeing these nutbags again. It's for the best and totally scientologific.

I'm a little confused that a mutt who objects to chocolate would be a BEER fan.

twisted dog, let's not be too harsh on Paris, at least she's admitting that she's a little confused. admission is the first step to a cure.

and tg, watermelon rocks!!! or maybe it rolls, but i really like it a lot. not so crazy about those melons, though.

I know some other commenters grow tired of Starbucks but I would take a latte drink over a piece of watermelon gum any day. TG, don't you have any more coffee news?

Love the link to the Hope, Ark., watermelon grower. And relieved that Pamela Anderson didn't find that farmer before Dulcinea developed their watermelon.

Isn't Hope where Bill Clinton comes from? That might explain a lot about his psyche.

CLAIRE-V, PARIS IS ONLY UNDERSTATING THE OBVIOUS WHEN SHE SAYS SHE'S CONFUSED.

Did clairevoyant know the part about watermelons having lycopene? Wait, that's a silly queston - of course she knew. Way before the rest of us.

"KATIE HOLMES ISN'T SEEDLESS."

Bwaaaaaaaaaaahahahahahahaha...

GREAT one, Mutt Mouth! For that gem, you can come over and dine from our cats' litter boxes any time...!

The mention of lycophone is ridiculous. Nobody in search of lycophone is going to be chewing this gum.

Stickkler, please expect a call from our lawyers regarding the unauthorized dissemination of trade secrets relating to our newly-patented Lyco Phone, the phone for food processors.

Kirk is correct that Hope is the hometown of Bill Clinton. It's also home to an annual watermelon festival (with all the requisite jokes one cares to make about big melons).

IN ALL THOSE FACES I SEE BUT ONE THING: DOG KILLER!

I came across your blog as a result of the Food Blog Awards. It's very funny. (They should have put you up for Humor.)

clairevoyant... THANKS for the dog killer link! My wife and I were commenting just yesterday how every single pose the "little princess" does is the same damn thrust-chest-out, push-hiney-back, smirk and jerk.

Just priceless!!!

What is the interest in gum? It doesn't seem to fit the slogan about espresso and ice cream and Dallas restaurants
