    Cantaloupes. I hate them. They're vile,evil, smelly, nasty things. They have no reason to exist. And I have been proven right! They are now killing people, again! Illinois to Tennessee to North Carolina, they are sickening and killing people. Where is the outrage. The outrage, I say. Take these melons from us.
    We must do away with them.
    I suggest buying as many as possible or taking the evil ones from your grocers who can no longer sell them, and have a fine time injecting them with copper, lead, and steel.
    A fitting end to such a disgusting piece of "fruit".

    Cantaloupes don't kill people. Grocers kill people.

    I've never met a melon that I liked, but cantalopes are the absolute worst!
    I can't stand the smell of them. It will make me ill. Anything they touch is infused with that horrible taste.
    I won't eat a plate of food if it's served with cantalope on the plate. I'll send it back and order something different.
    I'm pretty broad minded when it comes to food and I'll try anything, but 'lopes just disgust me.

    the reason they are making people ill is because people cut them without first washing the melon. this transmits any bacteria that is on the rind into the innards. this is true of any food stuff whether its a pineapple or cantelope or watermelon or whatever.

    wash your food before cutting. running a rind vegetable/fruit where the rind is discarded under hot soapy water will not hurt the fruit underneath.

    eating a cantalope shouldnt actually kill you. just wish you were dead till you get the taste out of your mouth. thats why lions lick their butts, to get the taste of politicians out of their mouths...

    I'll eat some cantaloupe once in a while. It's that green honeydew b.s. that I can't stand. It tastes like dollar store perfume.

    I love me some cantaloupe and honeydew. I don't know what the hell these folks' problem is...

    Honeydew is a little too sweet though, it HAS to have a touch of salt.

    Salt? No, not salt. Lemon juice, squeezed from a lemon.
