ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Redditor TheHerferd carved this brain out of the rind of a watermelon using a potato peeler and a paring knife. The project took less than an hour and looks great.
We've posted about this before: here's a tutorial on making a similar brain, from 2008.

The esteemed sculptor of this masterpiece also has a fine taste in periodicals, evident by his subscription to “Eek”ly magazine.
Perfect for the vegetarian zombie in your life. Graaaaaaains…
Now that’s fairly frickin’ cool.
Next, use it to make a mold, then use the mold to make one out of Jell-O. Then you could prod it so it pulsates.
Not sure if Jell-O would hold its shape for something as large as a watermelon, though. How would you make it hang together? Can you buy extra-strength (extra-gelatin) Jell-O? Maybe just leave out some of the water.
