Watermelon Venom: Deadly Deliciousness

Who doesn’t look at a watermelon and instantly think Venom? It’s hard not to, right? Well instead of just thinking it, Italian sculptor Valeriano Fatica went and made our collective thoughts reality, carving Venom’s head out of a watermelon. I’ll be honest though, that does not look like a tongue I’d want in my ear. Or teeth I’d want nibbling my ear. As a matter of fact just stay away from my ears, Venom.

Valeriano says he works predominately in fruit and vegetables but also dabbles in cheese, clay, and rock. Out of those carvings, I would only eat the first three. Still, who knew you could carve such an impressive bust out of a melon? The only thing I’ve ever done with a watermelon is accidentally swallow a seed and get scared a plant was growing inside my stomach, which my parents said was probably the case. And they wonder why I have trust issues.

Spider-Man Dangling from a Street Lamp: Swingin’ in the Rain

As far as novelty desk lamps go, this is one of the better ones I’ve seen. The officially licensed Marvel Spider Man Streetlight LED Desk Lamp stands approximately 16-inches tall and features Spider-Man dangling from a miniature street light, which doubles as a desk lamp. Is your mind blown? Because there are pieces of mine everywhere, and my wife is NOT going to be happy when she gets home and I’m playing video games and still haven’t cleaned them up yet.

Available from online toy and collectible retailer Toynk, the desk lamp costs $60, which I actually found rather reasonable, considering a lot of these sorts of superhero collectibles require Bruce Wayne levels of money to purchase, and I’m operating on more of a Swamp Thing budget.

Spider-Man: there’s a little bit of him in all of us. And not just because we all descended from spiders, but we did and I’m writing the scientific paper to prove it. It’s called ‘We’re All Just a Bunch of Spider-People’, and it’s going to change the way humanity views our place in the world. Or get me locked up in the nut-house. Either way, I better get to make a cameo in the next Spider-Man movie.
