A man has broken a world record by smashing 47 watermelons with his head in 60 seconds.

Don't miss the video.

Look, I don't want to be sexist here, but I'm guessing that no woman has ever even attempted to break this record before.

look out gallagher!

He must have one heck of a headache.

Also, didn't The Smashing Melons open for the B-52's in 79?

this would be way more impressive with coconuts.

True dat, cg. Also, the lady who smashes beer cans with her boobs. THAT's gotta hurt.


The word ,"why",keeps popping into my head.

(The sixth comment hasn't made it here yet!)

Wasn't Smashing Watermelons one of the other NAFRBs that they were considering before they went with Smashing Pumpkins?

I wonder which head he was using?

For some reason the movie "Real Genius", and hammering nails through 2X4s, comes to mind here.

I say melons are to appreciated, admired, and tastefully enjoyed...What a waste! ;)

What a melon head.

There was actually a WORLD RECORD for this bozo to break in the first place...?


I'm wondering how many watermelons he picked before this idea popped into his head. For some reason that old excedrin commercial keeps going through my mind. I think it showed a cartoon throbbing brain. A woman wouldn't do this because watermelons are sticky and would be a nightmare to get out of our hair and clothes.

The world is not quite as messed up as you think, Wes.

"John Allwood, 29, a melon picker, from Queensland, Australia, broke his own world record which he set during the 2007 festival, smashing 40 melons in a minute."

and as if that were not enough, melon skiing followed the smashing. Quite the day.

I want to try Melon Skiing! looks like a blast right until the end of the tarp. then things kinda go bump.

looks like a blast right until the end of the tarp

Sounds like the stock market.

I would have made a HUGE batch of Melontinis.

*perks up*

Did someone say, "Huge melons"?

Yawn. This would have been a lot more impressive if he had been squeezing them between his butt cheeks.

His mother is sooooo (sniff) proud!!!

I went on a date on Valentines day. I had met the guy online at www.amizap.com . The date went really well, but am a bit nervous about online dating, what are your experices with online dating?

Can not but agree with previous authors. I fully support it.

I do not know how relevant to this blog. A lot of talk but little that is specifically useful.
However, with the last author I agree.
