Buoni Meloni!

Today’s visit to a neighborhood fruit stand brought to mind the rumor that melons are often grown to match the optimal size of certain body parts, as a subconscious way of promoting more purchases. Urban legend or not, the Italians have taken it to a whole new level: thanks to the wax seal that is not-so-subtly placed where the stem was broken off!

(With apologies to parents reading this with young children, since you now might have some explaining to do...hey, it's a "teachable moment!")
