Who knew?

So, there I was. In  the local liquor store. It was my birthday the next day and I though that I would pick up a bit of libation. A gal is only the answer to the question of life the universe and everything once, RIGHT?
We picked up a nice bottle of white wine. There was also a bottle of bubbly that looked good. And a couple of beers for good measure. And off we head to the cash. Where I spy this......
Melon Head.
Did you SEE the picture? I couldn't resist!
Yes. That is a cat. In a melon hat. A rather pissed off cat in a watermelon hat.
Yes. There was a surprising hint of melon in the beer. Melon beer! Who knew? Every sip I took was a new discovery. Every time I was surprised by the melon.
I couldn't drink a lot of these in one sitting (too weird) but it was rather enjoyable.

That is certainly one pissed off looking cat. And though I didn't much like the beer, I love the label.

And in the "strange but true" category, there are fans of a particular football team, the Saskatchewan Roughriders, who don those melon helmets by the thousands when going to rider games; see http://www.cbc.ca/canada/saskatchewan/story/2009/11/26/sk-watermelons-911.html

I just can't help but think of how sticky and disgusting one's hair would be after wearing a watermelon helmet on one's head for a few hours.

And that Melon Head beer is made right here in Fredericton, N.B. who knew in deed?

THAT is hilarious!!!

And worrisome. Melon... beer. I don't think that would quite work for most people... but the cat label is definitely worth it.

That is way too funny! And though I like raspberry wheat beer, I am not sure I could go for melon. ew

Tanita, I bought it for the label. And the experiment. But mostly for the label. WHich, coincidentally, Mira peel off and ran away with!
