Behold! The Ultimate Uni-Tasker
We Americans load our homes and kitchens with uni-taskers. At Menards last week, I spotted this "Melon Splitter" for just $4.99. What is a melon splitter? It is a device that slices your water melon into 12 equal slices. That is - as long as it fits inside this contraption.
This thing is HUGE. You'd have to live in a really big McMansion with a really big kitchen to be willing and able to store this thing for the 3 or 4 times you'd use it every year.
As you can guess, after mocking this thing in store, I had a moment of weakness where I actually thought about taking it off the hook and sticking it in my cart. Fortunately, sanity overcame me and we left without this gadget.
