Grapefruit Bowling

In Florida, where there are more grapefruits than people know what to do with, people have started going grapefruit bowling.

Grapefruits are large and heavy, so it's a natural conclusion that they would make great bowling balls. They are bitter, so people don't like eating them anyway, and therefore using grapefruits for bowling is not a waste of food.

Grapefruit bowling is different from ordinary bowling in that the ball is a grapefruit without holes for your thumb and two fingers. Furthermore, one must roll the grapefruit gently in order to keep it from exploding. The fact that an exploded grapefruit is worse than a gutterball can be frustrating for bowlers with strong arms.
