We’re thinking ‘Watermelon Fields Forever on Mars’

We found this post, which is our featured image, at archive.org Wednesday morning after we read a Boing Boing story about it Tuesday night.

Many thanks to archive.org and Boing Boing for what they did so that we could be entertained and then inspired to write our first June 2021 post, our headline a Lennon and McCartney mashup.

The biggest props go to the writer Joe Schmoe, the New York Times perpetrator of hilarious hoaxing who came up with the fake story “Fields of Watermelons Found On Mars, Police Say.”

Perhaps one day, Mr. Schmoe, as the NYT would call him, might write the story about his story for a book and we hope he would consider “Watermelon Fields Forever on Mars” as the title.
