    Fortunately, in her state they have concealed watermelon laws. Otherwise the picture would’ve looked a whole lot wronger.

  2. Bobby says:

    I am really concerned that this may be my neighbor. Locking the doors from now on.

    “What’d you say ’bout ma melons??”

  4. nicswife says:

    i think she’s conveying what she’s going to do to the next person who asks her if she’s got a watermelon in there! i’ve been there…. felt like doing this!

  5. libby 1 says:

    I think we dated at community college

  6. Denise says:

    What awkard about that? She’s simply exercising her right to bear arms…and children.

  7. holly says:

    She can come to my party tonight. Tell her we have fireworks and beer.

  8. Suze says:

    When you cantaloupe,get your watermelon!
    I’m so,so sorry,it’s all I could come up with.

  9. girlgeek says:

    Why is everyone commenting on the watermelon? The watermelon is the most normal thing she is carrying!

  10. firefly86 says:

    wow. why would someone want a picture like this? and why would someone agree to take it?

  11. lovedoctormike says:

    C’mon! This isn’t awkward! Every mom is like this here in Louisiana. It is called weekend.

  12. grimey says:

    um…nice melon?

  13. brandi says:

    You can have my watermelon when you pry it from my cold, dead hands.

  14. TREEMAN says:

    …remember “DIRTY DANCING” – everything start´s with carrying a WATERMELON!!!


    I would love to see this in an oil painting. Over my fireplace.

  16. jonathan says:

    Is there some kind of Republican hidden meaning?

  17. Kimberly says:

    Proof that pictures are worth (at least) a thousand words. Many of them followed by question marks.

  18. NuttyMom says:

    I’m at a loss, I truly can’t imagine what the photographer was up to… unless she’s going to use that melon to skeet shoot. Has this shot just been taken for this site? I think it should have posted on

  19. MODOG says:

    wow. just wow.

    This photo is so…so, that it feels like it was staged as a joke. Please tell me this photo is a joke.

  20. Cincoflex says:

    Wow–looks like Fourth of July is at Marney’s house too!

  21. LilyBear says:

    “Look, I’m taking the watermelon and there’s nothing you can do about it. Be at the payphone at 5th and Vine at 2pm for further instructions. And DO NOT call the Police. If you do, the watermelon dies!”

  22. Maria says:

    Sweet Founding Fathers! They are collectively rolling in their graves. Or maybe not. Which is even more frightening.

  23. ruth says:

    this needs a back story!

  24. Aimes says:

    What the ???? “Okay, for this photo shoot, remember to dress casual, maybe a floral print dress, and bring a small watermelon. Oh, and don’t forget your gun.”

    I hope Brian let her have the watermelon all to herself.

  25. Melon lover says:

    Nice melons……

  26. Cathy says:

    don’t touch my melons …or else?

  27. just wondering says:

    Nothing says Happy Independence Day like a watermelon and a gun??? I don’t think I want her at MY picnic…..

  28. stb says:

    Now that is my kind of girl.

  29. Dan says:

    Holy Hell! Oh, where to start? Nice Melons? Look at those Guns? But together? Wow! I’m not sure how to react. Excited, Scared? I indeed lmao.

  30. MB says:

    ” I claim this watermellon and ain’t nobody gonna take it from me”

  31. Rajj says:

    i wonder why is she holding the water melon? Does it have some meaning..

  32. eric says:

    are these supposed to be her two favorite things, or does she like to shoot watermelons? WTF?

  33. Insanewiches says:

    Clearly, she’ll be using the watermelon as target practice! A skill she’ll soon pass on to her child.

  34. Jenany says:

    I was wondering what what so “awkward” … until I scrolled down a bit. She scares me. :-\

  35. hurstburst says:

    “Touch my watermelon and die!”

  36. jean says:

    What?!?!? I just completely don’t understand why someone would have this photo taken.

  37. Señor_Citizen says:

    Mom? Mommy? Is that you?

  38. Hero Hog says:

    Good for her keeping her finger off the trigger and not pointing the gun in an unsafe direction!

  39. PJ says:

    “I carried a watermelon…”

  40. Marte says:

    “I carried a watermelon…??”

  41. Mark says:

    That’s one way to remove the seeds.

  42. PJMoore says:

    You’ll get my watermelon when you pry it from my cold dead hands…..

    Or, when watermelons are outlawed, only outlaws will have watermelons……

  43. Beth says:

    There are no words….

  44. Devon says:

    That is wrong!

  45. lynne says:

    oh my……why?

  46. Pippa says:

    Words fail me……

  47. Peter says:

    Umm, no comment

  48. Jeff says:

    She makes fruit salad in a different way than others.

  49. Kurtacus says:

    It’s a little known fact that the watermelon is a member of the Yonkowski family. You gotta problem with that?

  50. JP says:

    Good grief, America. Don’t annoy her. She may frown at you…not.
