MoFA: ‘Conjoined’ Specimens
- Title: “The Ginger Bear Centipede”
- Media: Gingerbread Bear Tourists. A Mad Scientist.
- Submitted by: Amy S.
- It looks like MAD SCIENCE got the best of our little gingerbread bear friends.
- Title: “Carrot Legs meets Lederhosen”
- Media: Carrots. Lederhosen. Magic!
- Submitted by: Sonja V. (Palmerston North, New Zealand)
- Sonja found an interesting pair of CARROT LEGS that were all fine & good on their own. And, yet, a certain "something" was missing. After spending some time with ol' "carrot legs," we found out what it was -- lederhosen.

- Title: “Craaaaaaazy Berry”
- Media: Strawberry. Craziness.
- Submitted by: Shura (Germany)
- I wish strawberries always came this way. I'd eat them by the basket-full. I can only imagine the taste explosion that Shura enjoyed when eating this fantastic-looking accessory fruit.
- Title: “Conjoined Tomatoes”
- Media: n/a
- Submitted by: Danny M.
- One tomato, two tomato, three tomato, four.* No, just one tomato. Or two? Or... I give up.
(*I don't think this first line will make sense to those that did not grow up with the little "one potato, two potato" song/rhyme. My apologies.)
- Title: “Yin-Yang Eggs”
- Media: Eggs. Unity of Opposites.
- Submitted by: Martin G.
- I know. Before you comment. I know. If they were truly "Yin Yang Eggs" they wouldn't both be white with yellow yolks. But, it's not bad.
- Title: “Pregnant Pepper”
- Media: Momma Pepper. Baby Peppers
- Submitted by: Heather S.
- Heather writes: "After I cut the top off of the seemingly normal pepper, I noticed a tiny baby pepper nestled all snugly in it's peppery womb. Upon removing the poor thing, I noticed that it was not one baby, but two- conjoined twin baby peppers. This whole thing was too traumatizing for me, and I couldn't bring myself to eat the mamma pepper or the baby peppers. To date, the pappa pepper has not been identified." Twin baby peppers! Mazel tov!
- Title: “Freaky Twiglet”
- Media: Twiglet Triplets
- Submitted by: Marc & Sarah
- I don't even know what a Twiglet is, but how often do you see head-to-tail conjoining?
Oh, a Twiglet
- Title: “The Grapetacular Experiment”
- Media: Grapes. Extreme Market Competition.
- Submitted by: Steve P. (Bluffton, South Carolina)
- Feeling pressure from the popularity of other fruits on the market, the L.G.C. (Large Grape Conglomerate) has been experimenting with a new grape-based product that it hopes will steal some customers from the lucrative A.P.O.P. (apple, pear, orange and papaya) demographic. Intrepid photographer, Steve P., went to great lengths to obtain these images of this confidential fruit prototype. Good work Steve.
- Title: “Cu-Cu-Cucumber!”
- Media: Cucumber. Mad Science.
- Submitted by: Elen O.
- Clearly, this cucumber is evidence of a strange & mad science occurring somewhere in the world. Elen didn't mention such a device, but I am certain that the once-impossible MERGING RAY is being tested within Elen's greenhouse. What merged-vegetable madness does the future hold?
