Watermelon may have Viagra effects

Watermelon may have similar effects as Viagra, a scientist says. While this is perhaps an explanation for why many picnics end in embarrassment, it isn't entirely certain that you should throw away your pills just yet. It contains a "phyto-nutrient" called citrulline which relaxes blood vessels, which is apparently how Vaigra does its magic.

Oklahoma declares sun-warmed watermelons State Vegetable!

The state of Oklahoma has a lot of time on its hands. They've already declared strawberries to be their state fruit, but Rep.

I haven't read the actual legislation, but my sources indicate that they're specifically refering to sun-warmed watermelon; whether hole-in or pre-hole wasn't clear.
