    "Players would gather in a circle and smash the watermelon while others were either standing in a group or locking arms and making chanting sounds described as, 'Ooh, ooh, ooh,'" school district Superintendent Nancy McGinley said, describing the noises as "monkey sounds." The watermelon was decorated with caricatures drawn with Sharpie markers, she added.

    It's racist to needlessly destroy ethnic snack food

    This reminds me of something funny that Daniel Carver said. I recently listened to the show from '04 in which Daniel was awarded $25,000 for winning the football pick challenge. He made a comment about painting a football green to look like a watermelon so black receivers would never drop the ball.

    A grocery store near my house got into a lot of heat over a 4th of July picnic deal where if you bought a 24 piece of their shitty fried chicken you'd get free coleslaw and a watermellon. Some Enwurd actually got pissed and threatened to go to "CHANNO SEVEEN' so they stopped doing it.
    They bought a ridiculous amount of water melons they needed to get rid of them. :coffee:

    I guess my team should quit our "Chicken wing fling" ritual before each game too then.

    Why take it out on a watermelon? Use eggplants, they hide bruises better.
