January 13th, 2015 by The Watermelon Guy


Here on the Watermelon blog, I’d like to think I’ve seen, tasted and experienced all things watermelon. While some things I’ve witnessed have been downright outrageous, I have yet to see a watermelon-animal hybrid … until today.

There are a handful of species of rhino, but I’m not sure you’ll find this striped fellow grazing anywhere. As for what you might call this beast, I’ll admit that I am completely stumped. A water-rhino? A rhino-melon? Leave a comment below of your best caption for this picture. And remember: Every comment on the blog this month is an entry to win our January prize — the watermelon oven mitts!

I stumbled onto this image the other day and it made me chuckle, so I figured I’d share it here on the watermelon blog. It’s either a great Photoshop effort or the world’s strongest baby. While there’s a 99 percent chance that it’s just clever photo editing, I prefer to believe that it’s real.

Yeah sure, an eight-pound watermelon is easy for an adult to toss around, but for a little guy (girl?) like this one, it’s no easy feat. And just imagine how strong this baby will be when he’s two or three years old. Today, he’s hoisting watermelons, tomorrow he’ll be giving piggy back rides to his dad.

It’s actually kind of scary when you think about it. I have a hard enough time wrangling my three-year-old year when she’s throwing a tantrum. If you’re the parent of a The World’s Strongest Toddler, forget about it.

Feel free to leave a comment with your best caption for this photo. And remember, all of the comments left on the blog this month will be entered to win our May prize – a $50 Chili’s gift card to taste test Chili’s watermelon drink lineup. Good luck!
