Dating back to 14th century Thailand, the ancient art of watermelon carving is nothing new. But recently, we've seen a whole lot of these creations gracing the pages of our favorite social media sites.

And like every other food trend, there are always going to be a few that aren't quite as good as the rest and even a few that give us the heebie-jeebies.

Take a look at a few of our favorites, a few of our not-so-favorites, and a few that we wish we could forget.

We'll start with the good...

Really? Is that a 1980's Mark II? Do not encourage your buddy to hold on to his prized Toyota Mark II with a watermelon carving.

We absolutely love carved watermelon flowers! They're beautiful! Just make sure your flower carving doesn't take on too much of a Georgia O'Keeffe look like this blossom.

Just like portraits of children tattooed onto the forearms of their parents, we think carving your kid out of fruit is equally as creepy.

We get it. It's a guy swimming. But we think it looks more like some poor soul gasping for air before he is sucked into the sea of eternally bloody hell. Or a man that has been skinned alive and is taking his last breath before he sinks into a bloody pit. OR ... you get the idea. It's creepy.

And the creepiest of the juicy summer melons -- watermelon fetuses suspended in a jello placenta. Yep, this happened. And while we're impressed we're super grossed out at the same time.
