Dubbed "Watermelon boy" by the Twittersphere, young Mitchell Shibecki became the first Internet star of 2016 after he was caught eating an entire watermelon, rind and all, on the Jumbotron at Saturday's Women's Big Bash cricket match. That took place in Australia, although even if it wasn't a women's cricket match, you already know that someone going viral for eating large amounts of fresh fruit at a professional sports game is not a story that originated in America.
Why the rind though? Was it a punishment, like when your Dad caught you with a cigarette as a tween so he made you smoke the entire pack? It puzzled and fascinated everyone watching the match, and soon enough Twitter went bananas for this watermelon boy.
