Two smashing links for you to enjoy, today.
First up, the Mutato Collection. Ok so one of the tomatoes is in its straightforward natural form BUT I bow to the other pieces of amazing vegetable weirdness displayed.
Second, MoFa Museum of Food Anomalies – great name – An online exhibition of the Art of Regular Food Gone Horribly Wrong. A wider remit than mine, it includes not only vegetables but other foods such as, the “happily oblivious” ice cream shown below. However, in a similar vein, visitors and regular readers are invited to submit their own anomalous foods.
What I find particularly interesting is that both these sites appear to be run as conceptual art projects by artists. Though I run this site as an escape… a hobby, in the real world I do, also, happen to be an artist. Is it something to do with our temperament, I wonder?

Another fine submission from Peter Bailey, who grows his own carrots and is therefore one of the few people who will appreciate just how extraordinary the straight, “normal” carrots we see in supermarkets actually are.
This fine example looks like a pair of chubby man-thighs with a little stubby willy.
Thank you, again, Peter!

Here is another smashing submission, this time from Tony and Cathy Burrows… they term this carrot “incontinent” – and it certainly looks like it needs to GO…
Thank you Tony and Cathy!

This picture has been sent in by Chloe Metcalfe. Says Chloe.
“I think My mum got it from Tesco’s, and I think it was organic, that’s about all I know about it.”
Yes, Chloe, I think “organic” is the word for this fine willy and legs carrot combo. A little blurry – yes – but still clear enough for us to enjoy…
Thank you Chloe!

Thank you to Murren Tullett for our second smashing picture of a Yam which looks like a girl’s front bottom.
“Found by a friend that works at Sainsbury’s. ‘Gave us hours of amusement and joke material.”
Murren, I’m delighted to discover that the world of work has not changed since I left it. Thank you.
