The Best Music Video About Watermelons That You’ll See Today

watermelon

If you love watermelon, as Tom Rosenthal does, you might go so far as to dress up like one and dedicate a song and music video to it… like Tom did. Watermelons make us do strange things.

In this bizarre video, appropriately titled ‘Watermelon,’ we see Tom dressed as the large fruit, prancing and singing along the countryside.

The lyrics go something like… ‘Watermelon, watermelon, watermelon, watermelon, it’s watermelon time.” And, so on and so forth. Please watch.

What They Really Ate At The First Thanksgiving

When we think of a traditional Thanksgiving dinner — the requisite turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and creepy uncles comes to mind.

Guardian Food takes us back to the very first Thanksgiving meal in 1621, showing us that it was far from the meal that’s now synonymous with giving thanks.

Turkey probably wasn’t even on the menu, as wild turkeys may have been a bit too fast for the pilgrims to hunt. Ducks and geese, more the early-settler’s speed, were the go-to bird — while the absence of sugar at the time, would’ve made cranberry sauce impossible.

We have to imagine that pilgrims and native Americans had questionable relatives though. See… just like Thanksgiving.

Have you ever wondered why coffee has the ability to both keep us awake, and make us feel less stabby in the morning?

Your Brain on Coffee, brought to us by AsapScience, explains what caffeine is actually doing to our mind grapes. Most importantly, we discover what not only makes us crave caffeine, but why we eventually need more and more to remain functional.

The best part… AsapScience also explains why it’s physically impossible to overdose on caffeine. So, throw back all the mocha-choca lattes you’d like, and have fun trying to sleep this week.
