    I had a Thing I thought you’d appreciate, and wanted to share, but I don’t see any way of contacting you. Ah, well. Guess it’ll stay my own little thing, for a while, until it inevitably catches on. 😉

    Very much enjoyed the green & brown show. The watermelon babies thing was particularly amusing. Tom suggesting that the watermelon keeps babies cool might have been a bit of a fun guess, but he might not be that far off. I have no evidence of watermelons being used to regulate the internal temperature of young’uns, but watermelons are used as headgear by fans of the CFL’s Saskatchewan Roughriders. Photo evidence: https://www.google.com/search?q=saskatchewan+roughriders+watermelon+hats&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=-I84Uo3oKrSV7Aa2-oHwAw&ved=0CCwQsAQ&biw=1197&bih=674&dpr=1

    I once asked a friend who is a diehard Roughriders fan about the watermelon helmets, and was told that they’re used in the summer to keep fans cool. So Tom was not talking out of his microbiome transplant hole!

    The actual history of the watermelon helmet is uncertain at best (as evidenced in this video: http://youtu.be/mo7KG2vsq3E), especially the reason why, but I choose to believe it’s to keep the prairie brains fresh during football season.
