Low Hanging Fruit.
Most of us have heard the expression...   over and over.   It is about going after the easy problems, the easy targets, the easy revenue.   Low hanging fruit...   I envision an apple tree with ripe apples easily within my reach.
Recently, a new variation of this expression has been being used at work:   Watermelon!   "Let's address the watermelons first."   "Wow, there's matermelons there!"   "Find the watermelons."
As fruits go, watermelon are definitely "low hanging fruit", so the expression works.   But as a rather new expression, it still causes people to cock their head sideways and say, "Ehr?"
