Summer is the time to chomp into a big, juicy, pink watermelon with friends and family. Spoofee has got a handy guide to picking a good one:

• Tap the watermelon with your knuckles and listen for a hollow sound
• There should be little color contrast between the green stripes
• The end should be going from white to light yellow
• Press your thumbs into the skin from all angles. It should be hard all around.
