I love to eat cashews. This morning I found one shaped exactly like a high-heeled shoe. (A ca-shoe?) It's not quite like seeing the Virgin Mary in a grilled cheese; but I thought it would be wrong to eat it. I have saved it on a shelf in the kitchen. Posted by Hello

aka shoe? And it's precisely like seeing the virgin in grilled cheese. Precisely! I've got a couple of Mary candles around here, just in case. Maybe aka shoe deserves a votive on the kitchen sill? Maybe it has a sacred sole?

I love this picture. O lord, I thought it was a slug at first. I also love little "mutant" food when I find it...Mel always passes the conjoined Wheat Thin Twins, the utterly unidentifiable animal crackers, the misshapen mints to me. (And I eat 'em

Oh Peter! I LOVE this. It's much better than finding Mary in a bowl of Froot Loops. Of course, you know I worship shoes.

Mutant Food! Now *there* is a photo collage. Imagine Fruit Loops Mary and the Wheat Thin Twins together with Tuna Melt Elvis, Cinnamon Roll Mother Teresa, and the Zucchini from Planet Nine. hehehe

I'm pretty sure that, from now on, every time I see a cashew I'm going to think, 'Shoe-Slug! Agh! SHOE-SLUG!!!'

Nutty waxy little slug! I want one named Hubert.

I see your ebay listing now.

And the crazy thing is, you'd sell the bugger for more than it's worth. Perhaps it could be the next fundraiser for Floating Bridge. Poetic food: Ca-shoe (you already have)

Per-simmons (a persimmon that looks like Gene Simmons from Kiss)

Ava-cado (in the shape of Ava Gabor)

Loved the photo. I rarely find interesting food.

Oh Kelli: That's a great idea! I'll spilt the profits (prophets?) with you.

I think you should sell it on ebay. Then you could retire and write poems all day long.
