First, there was the kitten playing with a watermelon. Then there was Gus the bulldog eating a watermelon. Now, the third in an ongoing series of watermelon videos that make you go “Awwww!” I give you “Baby Sitting Inside a Watermelon.” Actually, he’s not just sitting inside it, he’s eating it, too. In other words, he’s living my dream, which will come true as soon as someone grows a watermelon large enough for me to climb into.

Remember the video I posted here a few months ago of the kitten playing with the watermelon? You can claim that you don’t, but you know that you do. Well, it seems cute, cuddly kittens aren’t the only animals that adore America’s favorite fruit. Cute, cuddly bulldogs named Gus also like watermelons… as you’ll see in the video below.

If you’ve ever had a kitten, you know that they’re very playful and somewhat unpredictable. Take the little guy in the video below, for example. He could have played with a ball of string or the dog or even his own tail, but he chose to play with a watermelon. I have to admit, that’s probably the last thing I’d play with if I were a cat, but it looks like he’s having fun… at least until he decides to move on to attacking the chair.

Last week, I talked about miniature watermelons (those weighing less than 10 pounds). This week, we’re shifting gears to giant watermelons, and no one knows more about giant watermelons than Lloyd Bright.

In 1979, the Bright family grew a then world record 200-pound watermelon on their farm in Hope, Arkansas. Six years later, they produced a behemoth weighing in at 260 pounds! Then, on September 3, 2005, the Brights picked the biggest of them all, a 268.8-pound monster that was officially recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records.

Below is a video of the world record holder being picked. The first giant watermelon in this video was dropped (try not to cry like I did when it happens), but the second was picked without incident.
