I have seen this question in the main site. It has got an answer and accepted it. But I found there is nothing more than a link in the answer. I did not flag the post(till now) as "not an answer" to check here, if these types of answers are accepted or not. It seems the asker did not make any research to get the answer. If we search google, the third link shows the result which is given in the answer also. And also citing a link only does not make a good answer. It needs further clarification and explanation from the answerer.

  • Movies and TV is one of the 'less pure more subjective' groups on Stack Exchange, but none the less a 'why is something so good' is usually viewed as too subjective.

1 Answer 1


Well the answer is not great, but it is more than just a link - briefly explaining that it is a slang term and linking to a site that specializes in tracking slang.

It is objectively an answer, even if not of a high academic value nor requiring much research. I am not convinced by an argument that it is not an answer therefore deserving to be deleted.

As for 'lack of research' for the question, well I am not convinced by that either. The fact that apparently cantaloupe can mean something, would perhaps be one explanation for the term being used in that scene. It is not a common expression, so I do not see anything wrong asking for an analysis here. I would not close this question.

  • okay. I would remember!
