As an avid chronicler of the “adorable animals eating watermelon” beat, not to mention a dogged investigator on the “smoking/dancing/smoking and dancing babies” beat, my mind about exploded when I saw GawkerTV Tweet out this watery and delicious treat: It’s a baby, in a watermelon, eating the watermelon while he sits inside the watermelon. Holy crap. The only thing missing here is a cigarette, and then this would be a meme, wrapped in a meme, wrapped in a sick and twisted Anne Geddes photo.
(Also, in other cultures, we suspect “Baby in the Watermelon” means something scandalous or is, at least, a high-stakes battle of the wits.)
