Weibo, the Twitter of China, has invented a thrilling new trend: dressing babies up in watermelons. China’s Xinhua news agency first reported the trend in July, pinpointing its origin to Wenzhou city, where parents of the baby above dressed him in a watermelon on a hot summer day for reasons unknown. His watermelon overalls were so cute, other parents imitated them to similarly cute effect. Gaming blog Kotaku points us to a baby in Gladiator-style watermelon armor and an adult in watermelon sunglasses.
Weekend homework: Dress something in a watermelon. A baby, a cat, a slightly smaller watermelon. I bet it turns out cute.
