MoFA: ‘Creepy Creatures’ Specimens

  • Title: “Return of the Donut Monsters”
  • Media: Donuts. Muppet-like googly eyes. The ability to breed and/or replicate.
  • Submitted by: Jim T.
  • After Jim discovered this first Donut Monster, he returned to his local bakery to find yet another, similar creature had taken up residence in the shop. Fearing that he someone may have opened up a portal to a donut-based parallel universe, Jim snatched up this latest creature to add to his collection. He then did the only thing that one could imagine doing: he used them to create an updated version of Grant Wood's "American Gothic."

  • Title: “Vam-pie-r”
  • Media: Pie. Lust for blooooooood.
  • Submitted by: Amanda R.
  • Amanda brought home what she thought was merely a delicious Marie Calendar's Triple Berry Pie to find this spooky, blood-thirsty creature lurking within the simple cardboard box. Obviously, the pie had recently fed on a victim -- or, perhaps, it's a regular pie that just finished reading the 'Twilight' series and got a bit carried away.

  • Title: “Skull Leaf”
  • Media: Leaf. Unknown spookiness.
  • Submitted by: Jaime C.
  • Jaime found this leaf on the street. Before you complain that this is not actually a FOOD anomaly, put such thoughts out of your mind: this is plain creeeeeeepy.

  • Title: “Swamp Thing Basil”
  • Media: Basil. Probably some sort of chemical or radioactive spill.
  • Submitted by: Eli J.
  • Eli found this image of the Swamp Thing in a basil plant and quickly took this picture. Little did he know that the image of the Swamp Thing would become a holy relic for swamp creatures the world over. His home is now overrun with plant elementals making the pilgrimage to witness this basil leaf firsthand.

  • Title: “Donut Monster”
  • Media: Donuts. Muppet-like googly eyes.
  • Submitted by: Jim T.
  • Like the "Cookie Monster," expect only if the cookie monster was made out of cookies instead of just having a love for cookies... and if, instead of cookies, it was donuts. Thus: DONUT MONSTER!

  • Title: “Oreo Ghost”
  • Media: Oreo Cookie. Spirit from... THE AFTERLIFE.
  • Submitted by: Linh N.
  • Linh knows how to properly consume an Oreo cookie: you twist apart the cookie, bite off the icing, then consume the two chocolately halves separately (you, of course, may choose to employ milk at any part of this process). What Linh didn't realize, though, is that friendly-looking ghosts sometimes choose to haunt these cookies. Here is the photographic evidence of one such ghost!

flour-skull

  • Title: “Flour Ghost”
  • Media: Pizza Flour. A spirit with "unfinished business."
  • Submitted by: Ann H.
  • Ann found this "creepy demon/ghost face on a dough tray while working at a pizza restaurant." Could this be the spirit of a long-dead pizza maker still haunting the restaurant? Or, could this be a sign of a demonically-delicious meal yet-to-come?

8-legged-horhino

  • Title: “8-Legged Horhino”
  • Media: Horse cookie. Rhino cookie. Animal cookie MERGING RAY.
  • Submitted by: Stephanie G.
  • Stephanie found this merged & commingled animal cookie while at work & quickly photographed this oddity for posterity within the MoFA. It is, indeed, an odd cookie, but the desktop background is real gem of this entry. The collection of fortune cookie fortunes, the fake $1M bill... these things bring up more questions than we have time to address in this simple museum. Something strange is going on here beyond what you see in the "8-Legged Horhino" cookie. Hmm...

coffee-dragon

  • Title: “Coffee Dragon”
  • Media: Coffee. Lack of Creamer. Mythic Creature.
  • Submitted by: Sierra
  • Sierra discovered that the ever-elusive "Dragón do café" (Gaelic for "Dragon of the Coffee") was living inside of her whipped cream canister when she fortuitously ran out of creamer one morning. While many would have recommended protecting & caring for such a noble creature, she quickly beheaded it with a spoon. Long live the Dragón do café.
