Thought you'd seen it all did you?

In Japan, land of efficiency, someone decided square was better. Then someone decided to one-up the square with pyramidal shapes. What's next?









They are created by growing them in tempered glass boxes, (see the one below), or in the other case acrylic pyramids.



Before you run out and buy these you might want to rethink it. At $100 for a square ones and $82 for the pyramids you might want to opt for the sirloin instead.

I think you would have to have a little too much money to be willing to pay 100 bucks for one of those. They all taste the same so who cares?

You'd have to find a stud with a square root.

LOL ... ahh, memories of crazy shit.

The price tag reads

Piramiddo Somethingsomething

15750 yen.
I don't know about today's exchange rates to the US$ but it is usually around 100 yen to the dollar. So that is about 150 bucks.

The point of the square melon is to fit it in the fridge more efficiently. So look out for the new pyramid shaped fridge, coming soon!

Or show someone you really care and get them a heart-shaped watermelon.

And according to CNN, normal watermelons (in 2001 at least) cost anywhere from $15 to $25.

No, it is not real. It is a hoax. Okay? No need to get all outraged like a supposedly intelligent friend of mine did once.
