Exploding Watermelons Are Da Bomb for Summer Barbecues



If you're looking to add a little zing to your summer barbecue, an exploding watermelon is the perfect way to spice up the ordinary hot dog and potato salad spread.

Where can you get such a exciting fruit, you ask? This may shock you, but they can only be found in eastern China -- where watermelons have been exploding after farmers mistakenly applied growth accelerator too late in the season and during wet conditions. The result? Entire fields of melons bursting like "landmines"!

These melons pair well with such foodstuffs as metal cadmium rice, toxic milk, arsenic soy sauce, borax pork, and bleached mushrooms -- with a menu like that, you're guaranteed to have the best barbecue on the block! Who cares if the melons aren't fit for human consumption? They're fun and exciting!

What started simply as a way to make a quick buck by dramatically increasing the size of the fruit, is now the hottest trend in summer fruit!
