It's as obvious as a watermelon in a Prius

I've gotten to use that phrase a couple of times this week at work. Thanks to CK and Amazonmink, I can at least explain myself when people respond with "WHAT?!"

I loaned my car to Amazonmink while we were in California. She forgot to remove a watermelon that she had purchased the previous day from the car, so left me a phone message telling me that I should do so. We got home from our trip way too late, so my brain was shutting down by the time we got in the house.

Me: "Ok, I need to send e-mail to my boss, feed the cat, get the watermelon out of my car, and go to bed."
CK: "Why don't you feed the cats while I go get the watermelon?"
So I did just that. CK came in a few minutes later carrying the watermelon. My brain, being on autopilot, prompted my mouth to spew a random platitude: "Did you have any trouble?"
CK looked at the watermelon in his arms, then back at me: "Um, I think I'm capable of finding a watermelon in a Prius, thanks."

*heehee* that's awesome. and now my brain is trying to cast CK in the jennifer grey role in dirty dancing ("i carried a watermelon!" - one of my favorite scenes). bad brain! no claymation!
