Hope Watermelon videos
December 21, 2006 2:13 PM   Subscribe

“There’s nothing like a BIG MELON to bring everybody together in Hope.” ( video ) It takes Bright Women to grow big melons, and old men to pick the world's largest. A better tagline possibly: "Hope Arkansas: Home of President Bill Clinton and the World's Largest Watermelons". Videos, as always, brought to you by the Hope MelonFest On-Deman Video Center.

Hey! This sort of misogyny is just not on.

At first I thought this was another dupe about the death of Turkmenbashi

I love accents from Arkansas. So fabulously cute! A 268 lb. melon is pretty large. I love the "world's largest" video where the people moving it accidentally drop it and decide to just start eating it right there on the spot.

Just the sort of edgy humor I've been looking for on Mefi all day.

dog food sugar, why are you spoiling??? Why don't you tell everyone what else happened?

You know. . . I really know people like this. Watermelons are their life.

Ahh I'm sorry! In my defense - the weight was mentioned in another link and the melon bust happens one minute into an 8 minute video. Those other 7 minutes are full of melon-centric conversational stylings.
