The pyramid watermelon - pointless, brilliant and Japanse of course
And so we sally forth to Japan once again – this time those crazy kooks have been fiddle-diddling with God’s very own nature and breeding these pyramid-shaped watermelons.
We don’t know ho many of them they’ve actually got but we do know that they’re only flogging 16 of them – and at only 52,500 yen (about £340) each, they’re not exactly your everyday melon.
In keeping with the pyramid theme, they’ve been branded with King Tut stickers and you’ll feel like a dead, entombed Egyptian pharaoh if you eat one. Possibly. Oh, and for the first commenter who will ask if the girl comes with the watermelon – no, she does not. Although, now that we look more closely at the shape of it…
Thanks Japan! While you’re around, we’ll never feel sad.
