Katrina Watermelons.

After Hurricane Katrina, watermelons are growing everywhere in St. Bernard Parish, New Orleans.

Presumably, the seeds were deposited during the hurricane and unusually high temperatures have produced a natural mystery.

A watermelon's consistency is 90 percent water, which means if you eat the St. Bernard Parish melons, you're drinking Katrina juice.

why is it such a mystery? one watermellon has almost 100 seeds. The flood smashed some melons and the flood waters deposited seeds everywhere. so the bees polinated the waternelon flowers, that's what bees DO. OHMYGODS!!!!! FOOD is growing! sigh.

soon to be shipped nation wide... I bet those things are filled with nasty toxins. Remember how they were saying the standing water was polluted with gas and oil & crap? mmmm, good eats.
