Seedless watermelons should be outlawed. A seedless watermelon is to a watermelon as:
(a) broccoli in a box is to broccoli;
(b)corn that's been sitting in an overheated truck for two weeks then picked over by blue-haired old ladies is to fresh-picked corn;
(c) alcohol-free beer is to belgian ale;
(d) A Hersheys bar is to chocoloate

The answer, of course, is all of the above. It may turn out that the true tragedy of GM-engineered foods is that no one remembers what fruits or vegetables taste like anymore - or that they once were consumed for pleasure as well as sustenance.
