Watermelon, man

June 28th, 2007 | Posted by administratrix in Blurbs

In which Vuboq thinks I’m crazy.

I say watermelon is sold by the pound. Vuboq says they’re sold by the piece. What do you think?

Fifteen of the first 17 votes were Vuboq, btw.

RESULTS ARE IN!: 4 to 20, in favor of by the pound.

    Note to self: 17 – 2 is the beginning amount; 17 were Vuboq and 2 were me. So poll end should subtract 16 and 1 respectively.

    i don’t believe a sweet boy like vuboq would do something like try to influence a poll’s results. you must be mistaken.

    Shouldn’t you be somewhere having sex, and not leaving silly comments on my site? *cackle* -m

    actually, it depends on the season and whether they’re selling whole melons or split melons.

    in winter, they’ll cut melons in 1/2 or 1/4 depending on the size of the beastie and sell it by the pound. this is because in winter they tend to be rather costly and people don’t want to spend that much on a big melon.

    in summer, as they come into season, their sold so much per melon. right now they have seedless watermelons (read flavourless tripe) for about $5 each. i wish they’d bring back the ones with seeds. not only do they taste better, but they have built in entertainment.

    ’round these parts, it’s usually sold by the pound. Even the slices/wedges/halves are sold by weight. I think some of the local farmer’s markets may charge a flat amount per melon, but it’s not something I witness personally.

    Happy Friday!

    everybody knows that watermelon is sold in the most profitable way according to the geographical location and season. it’s not an exotic fruit. you can prolly grow it in your yard.

    watermelon. it’s baffler.

    And perhaps even a good baffle, too. -m

    i’ve seen them sold both by pound and each. you need to add a new cateogry to the poll, “could be either depending..” on the story, i suppose.

    No! Only weirdos sell watermelons by the piece and not the pound! *lol* -m
