The biggest arbuz in the world… from Spain! Oh, the humanity…

The foremost watermelon fans in the world are… RUSSIANS! Take a back seat, American black folks (sorry, Lenny Rock), we Russians are the real deal real-world champs of watermelon appreciation. However, there’s no joy in Mudville (or should I say, Gryaznoe Selo) today… the world’s biggest arbuz is from… Spain! The proud grower is one Antonio González Casillas and it won first prize at the San Bartolomé fiesta in his small town (naturally).

Here’s to Señor González Casillas… damn, we’re just going to have to try harder. What’s that you say… you have a FILTHY mind with that cackle… I wasn’t thinking that at all, sir… truly!

Smile and sing! 😀 Here it is, a WATERMELON Festival in Kamyshin (Kamyshin Raion. Volgograd Oblast. Volga Federal District) in Russia. Spend a fun two minutes in the Rodina… and you thought that they were still stuck in a time warp in 1917…
