YOU SEE THE SIZE OF THAT BIRD?

Following a Halloween-related story on the "jack-o-launcher," a sort of howitzer designed to launch pumpkins and send them flying up to 2000 feet,Fox 13's seemngly sedated anchor Steve Dawson suggested that such a contraption could be a big hit at the Mid-South Fair. Instead of pumpkins,however, Dawson suggested using watermelons as ammo. Regardless of the fruit being hurled, such an attracton would no doubt make a huge impact on the revelers at the Fairgrounds,not to mention the motorists driving along East Parkway.
