I love watermelons and I don't care how sticky I get when I'm eating them because, you know, it's summertime. You know who else loves watermelons? JAPAN!

Lastly, a scene from the film Kikujiro (1999). Takeshi Kitano plays a totally gauche but endearing grump who finds himself playing guardian to dorky little Masao. They have lots of weird adventures out in rural Japan enroute looking for Masao's mom. And they eat watermelons.
Happy eating, friends!
