Sounds island-y. Revel in awe, at any rate. It is a whole new thing.

You're in for a world of spoilers, my friends. Kevin Spacey is Keyser Soze, Soylent green is people, and a canary melon is a honeydew.

Ease of Extraction: Reasonably thin-skinned and easy to cut, the seeds practically scrape themselves out, I own a melon-baller (of sorts), 8
Overall Nommability: 56 (right? Math is hard)
