I read a news article on Yahoo! today that revealed a startling fact: ice-cold watermelon is less nutritious than room-temperature watermelon.


Back in my day you ate watermelon ice cold because it was 95 in the shade and it was sweet and light and you could spit seeds at everyone. Nobody gave a rat's wazoo about nutritional value.

Ice Cold Watermelon: Wahoo! Summer! Swimming! Hot dogs and beach sand and baseball games! Fun, fun, fun!

Room Temperature Watermelon: Gosh, let's flip over to Discovery Health and watch open heart surgery. Boring. And icky besides.
