I have no idea if this watermellon thing has any value beyond what I witnessed a few weekends ago...

We were having a couple of couples over for a reasonably nice dinner on the patio and someone (not me) said something about watermelon rinds having viagra like properties.

Much of the remainder of the evening was consumed with merriment as the 3 females tried to talk the 3 males into eating the leftover wwatermelon rinds. We didn't. We clobbered them and dragged them into the bushes and had our way with them... we traded often. That will teach them.

Oh, and the Frogs will NOT go back to work.

Euros value there time NOT "working" above all other things. Above ALL other things. And Frogs are the quintessential Euros.

They WILL NOT go back to work. Never, ever. Not in our lifetimes.
