Ogden Nash would chuckle

The Cantaloupe

One cantaloupe is ripe and lush,

Another’s green, another’s mush.

I’d buy a lot more cantaloupe

If I possessed a fluoroscope.

[or an MRI machine]

Ogden Nash [with addendum by Ned Gulley]

From Inside insides (Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Foods): behold, the cantaloupe revealed, as pried open by the magnetic fingers of a mighty MRI machine.

But even in this Age of Wonders, you still have to ask, will it taste good when you get it home?
