128: Melanippus the Watermelon

I went to an Epic Cycle-themed birthday party on Saturday evening (basically, the Iliad, Odyssey, Theban stories, etc.). One of my classmates came as Tydeus, who killed his opponent and then ate his brains, which is just.... well. Yeah. So my classmate brought this watermelon, complete with a modified Darth Vader helmet (which you can see in the photo), as the head of the defeated Melanippus, and we were all highly amused to find that he'd filled it with punch, which, as everyone knows, tastes way better than brains.
