Toronto - 42 year old Wilbert Roscoe got his head thumped this week while shopping for watermelons at Kensington Market. Mr. Taylor who is heavy set and bald was leaning over a bin of seedless watermelons and was thumping them for freshness when another melon shopper thumped his head by mistake.
67 year old Mabel Fricker who is colour blind says it was an honest mistake. "I had my head down as well and was just looking for the freshest one, moving from one to another. His head looked just like any other melon so I just reached over and gave it a good whap."
"When the melon moved and glared at me you can image the fright it gave me!"
Mr. Roscoe was not injured by the incident and was given a complimentary melon by Kensington Market.
