Because Holly Asked

Holly asked about the square watermelons pictured in yesterday's post.
She wanted to know where the heck they come from.
First let me explain that they shape the watermelons by placing them in square boxes while they are still on the vine, so they grow to the shape of the box. (See the third picture from yesterday).
But as far as where they come from...
There really is only one answer that makes sense.
The place in the world that comes up with the craziest game shows, cartoons and awesomest video game systems (Wii to name one), also makes square watermelons.
But alas, my words cannot do justice to the creativity and ingenuity (and perhaps boredom driven entertainment) of these intelligent people.
So I will post these pictures, which will illustrate that far better than my words could.
Let me apologize in advance.

I really didn't need to see the last picture. :)

The whole family enjoys Ninja Warrior. On G4 TV. And of course, we watched Iron Chef before they started the American version.--Liz

I did try to apologize in advance.
The game shows can be very odd, but I didn't say they were uninteresting.
We used to watch Ninja Warrior now and then. It was always good for a laugh.
