  • 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. (Lederhosen image from Tapir Girl)

  • 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!

  • Michael C. found this lemon that looks as if it aspires to be something more... something marshmallow-y... something like a delicious Marshmallow Peep. Apparently this lemon hasn't witnessed the Bunnyocalypse.

A container of hoop-shaped pasta in a perfect line around the edge of the container - a most bizarre ordering of the food.

  • Title: “Spaghetti Hoop Crop Circles”
  • Media: Hoop-shaped pasta. Commands from Outer Space?
  • Submitted by: Wendy S.
  • Long-time viewers of the MoFA may, at first, be thrown off by this photo. What seems so unusual about this nearly-empty container of pasta hoops? Instead of focusing on the bottom of the container, cast your gaze, gentle viewer, to the sides of this vessel. Yes, there you will see that the contents of this unnamed, pre-cooked pasta delight have been arranged (or arranged themselves?!?) into a disturbing degree of order. Is this a matter of self-aware pasta that is attempting to avert the view of someone wishing to dine on the pasta? Or, could this be the crop circle equivalent of packaged foods? The mystery is only beginning...

A butternut squash with breaks in its skin that give it the appearance of having a single eye and a mouth.

  • Title: “Butternut Cyclops”
  • Media: Butternut squash. Greek & Roman Mythology.
  • Submitted by: Fernando A.
  • According to myth, the cyclopes* are a primordial race of giants -- all with a single eye in the middle of their forehead. Is this squash simply emulating the creatures of myth? Or, is it a sign of a new creature to come? *Yes, that is the proper spelling of the plural for "cyclops."

  • Two pieces of Froot Loops cereal join together to bring a little of our solar system into Libby's breakfast bowl. I wonder what it feels like to consume a planet?

  • Submitted by: Ashley D.
  • Here, ladies and gentleman, we have the offspring of the often-speculated & hotly-debated walrus-potato romance. Naysayers may stop their nay-ing, this photo proves, once and for all, that the Walrato exists!
