Is that a Watermelon in Your Seat? Funny Friday

Today’s post is this month’s Funny Friday, a regular feature published on the last Friday of every month. Funny Friday is a collaborative project. Each month one of the participants submits a picture, then we all write 5 captions or thoughts inspired by that month’s picture. Links to the other bloggers’ posts are below, click on them and see what they’ve come up with. I hope we bring a smile to your face as you start your weekend.

1. Woman to her new boyfriend (as she gets in the car): Is that a watermelon in your seat or are you happy to see me?

2. Man to his girlfriend: You know how shipping works, don't you? The thing is . . . you have to actually put the watermelon inside the box or it won't get there.

3. Man to his girlfriend: Why is there a watermelon on the car seat?
Woman: Because it wouldn't fit in my purse.

4. Watermelon (to himself): I wonder what that package is that she picked up at the post office. Oh, I hope it's not a set of knives. I may be in trouble here. I need to get out of this car. Where are a set of feet when I need them.

5. I have a riddle for you:
Q: What did the watermelon say to the box?
A: Nothing. Watermelons can't talk.

 And now for something yummy, not watermelon, but apple:

Apple Wassail Pie

pie crusts - you can make your own or use the refrigerated ones
6 - 8 apples of your choice, depending on the size of your pie dish (I use Braeburn because I like them a little tart)
4 TBSP flour, divided
2 TBSP orange juice
1 TBSP orange liqueur (can substitute with another TBSP orange juice)
1/2 tsp orange zest
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon 
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cloved
OPT: egg wash

*Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line your ower oven rack with tin foil in case your pie spills over.
*Spread 1 TBSP of flour onto a pie crust. Turn the crust into your pie plate so the flour is on the bottom. Gently fit the crust evenly into the pie plate.
*Core, peel and slice the apples. Place in a bowl and mix with the orange juice, orange liqueur (if using) and orange zest.
*Mix in the remaining flour, sugars, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Gently mix, then pour into and arrange evenly in the prepared crust.
*Put the top crust over the fruit, tucking and crimping the sides. Cut a few slits into the center of the top crust. Brush with egg wash if desired.
*Bake for approximately 45 minutes, it's done when you can see the filling bubbling. Check after 25 minutes and add a crust shield if necessary. Serve warm or at room temperature.


  1. Now that pie sounds good and I could eat it! Too bad you didn't invite me over ;)
    The box was my new laptop! I picked it up right after I bought the melon. Which by the way was sweet as sugar.

  2. Laughed out loud with this one, Karen! I think I could get it in MY purse... And what? Watermelons can't talk?!!!
