Denizen of the Day: Watermelon


Watermelon isn't only a fruit related to the herb family of plants; She's also a comedienne, baker, entrepreneur, model, tango dancer, health nut, activist...and acquitted three times on drug charges. Many moons ago, she woke up dehydrated on a nude beach and conceived the idea to sell fruit to other sunbathers in the buff. Her watermelon was such a smash success that she decided to branch out and bake up some "gingersnap crackle and pot" cookies for sale. It didn't take long for the authorities to catch up with her, and one day on the famous (and nude) Wreck Beach, the men in blue arrested her amidst crying children and rioting nudists. Turns out her cookies not only contained a secret ingredient, but also a little loophole, leading the judges to concede reasonable doubt about her guilt. She has said her pot cookies taste good, but victory tastes sweeter. She's graced the cover of High Times Magazine and hosted Amsterdam's Cannabis Cup. She believes the prohibition of marijuana is the epitome of a million social injustices. If you follow the link below, she will tell you why (Includes a nice documentary done on her for "Passengers".
