Watermelon: the food of angels, the palette of artists

Watermelons ain't just for hot summer days, poolside parties and potlucks on the lawn.

In the right hands — steady hands wielding a sharp carving implement — they're art.

Incidentally, 'twas Mark Twain who wrote of watermelons:

"It is chief of this world's luxuries  … When one has tasted it, he knows what Angels eat. It was not a Southern watermelon that Eve took; we know it because she repented."
