Thrown Fruit Is the Sweetest?

Jan. 31, 12:15 a.m.

A woman was extremely upset when one of the world's largest types of fruits was thrown at her fence and made a very large mess, according to a PCSD report.

The reportees, a husband and wife, said the fruit had been tossed at their front fence earlier that night—so hard that it smashed upon contact with their wrought-iron gate, sending bits of rind, watery red flesh and black seeds through the gate to land all over their front door and stoop.

The husband swore he'd heard maniacal teenage laughter around the time the melon was thrown, but neither reportee could think of anyone who'd play such a mean, messy joke in all the 15 years they'd lived in that residence.

No leads on the pranksters were found.
