  • Title: “‘Yoshi/Bowser Love Child’ Tomato”
  • Media: Super Mario Bros., Romantic interludes between heroes & villains.
  • Submitted by: Katherine L.
  • Katherine submitted this photo with only a description of a "smiling tomato;" but we know the truth. This tomato is the love child of an unspeakable 8-bit three way between Yoshi, Bowser and one of those piranha plants that hangs out in the sewers/pipes throughout the world of Super Mario Bros.

  • Title: “Jesus? Pumpkin Seed”
  • Media: Pumpkin seed and ???
  • Submitted by: Jim T.
  • Jim T. is back with another MoFA submission. This time he is certain that he's found Jesus in a pumpkin seed. To me it looks more like Jabba the Hut, but I guess these kinds of things are subjective. Who do YOU see?

  • Title: “Dracula Pepper”
  • Media: Green bell pepper. Thirst for blood.
  • Submitted by: Sarah N. (Ohio)
  • Sarah was innocently making herself the most delicious of all foods, pizza, when she cut into a bell pepper to use as one of her toppings. Much to her surprise, she found this likeness of one of the most reviled creatures of the night: a vampire. { Gasp! } She promptly snapped this photo as evidence and, as far as we're aware, was never heard from again.

  • Title: “Cheshire Smiley Meat”
  • Media: Soup. Meat. Famous Feline.
  • Submitted by: Ryan R.
  • Ryan's coworker found this smiling meat staring back at him from his mall food court soup. Unsettling, to be sure, but really this meat was only revealing itself to be the latest incarnation of the Cheshire Cat.

  • 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: “Cheerful Bread”
  • Media: Bread. Sunshiny Cheerfulness.
  • Submitted by: Anon.
  • This may be the most cheerful & pleasant piece of bread I've ever laid my eyes upon. And, yet, he communicates this good cheer without an obviously happy smile. A complex fellow, this piece of bread is.
