wilst walking one day, the idea of a canteloupe struck...
"Canteloupe(also canteloup) refers to two varieties of muskmelon (Cucumis melo) [1], which is a species in the family Cucurbitaceae (a family which includes nearly all melons and squashes). Canteloupes are typically 1525 cm in length and are somewhat oblong, though not as oblong as watermelons. Like all melons, canteloupes grow best in sandy, well-aerated, well-watered soil that is free of encroaching weeds."

"The European canteloupe is Cucumis melo cantalupensis. Its lightly-ribbed, pale green skin looks quite different from the North American canteloupe."

"The North American canteloupe, common in the United States and in some parts of Canada, is Cucumis melo reticulatus (or sometimes C. melo melo var. cantalupensis), a different member of the same muskmelon species. It is named reticulatus due to its net-like (or reticulated) skin covering. In some parts of Australia and New Zealand, it is usually called rockmelon due to the rock-like appearance of the skin of the fruit. It is called a spanspek in South Africa, where it is harvested during the summer months October through February. It is a round melon with firm, orange, moderately-sweet flesh and a thin reticulated light-brown rind. Varieties with redder and yellower flesh exist but are not common, and they are not considered as flavorful as the more common variety. "

So then a Giraffe came swooping in with a forest of leaves, inside some ones stomach and the virgin mary appeared.

"The giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis) is an African even-toed ungulate mammal, the tallest of all land-living animal species. Males can be 4.8 to 5.5 metres (16 to 18 feet) tall and weigh up to 1,360 kilograms (3,000 pounds). The record-sized bull was 5.87 m (19.2 feet) tall and weighed approximately 2,000 kg (4,400 lbs.).[2] Females are generally slightly shorter and weigh less than the males do."

"The giraffe is related to deer and cattle, but is placed in a separate family, the Giraffidae, consisting only of the giraffe and its closest relative, the okapi. Its range extends from Chad to South Africa."
by the way deer and familia mean, peace!

i had a friend who tried to tell me that here in the states, what we call cantaloupe is not actually "cantaloupe" but is in fact a "musk melon", that real cantaloupes are found in europe. i said that a muskmelon is just the type of melon that the cantaloupe is, and although they are different types of the same melon family, both the european version and the north american version are considered cantaloupes.
