It's been forever since I posted some pareidolia: an object or shape that looks like something else. Usually it's a face or a religious icon -- Jesus, Mary, Mohammed, whatever -- but really it can be anything.
So behold: the Carrot Shuttle!
That was in a bag of baby carrots. First one I pulled out, too! Pretty cool.
As you can see, it looks even more like the Shuttle from an oblique angle. I love the little rocket nozzle sticking out the back. I think the carrot dried up and cracked while being squeezed by other carrots, flattening it out and giving it the winged shape. Either that or it's a divine sign that I should be an astronaut.
Of course, I get sick on a kid's swing set, so that's probably not it.
... unless this vegetable is actually a sign I should go to Vega! But that can't be right. They would've sent a poet.
