Funny looking food  

I went to a Mexican market today... I'm a sucker for food I need to Google and this was too weird not to try. It is a spined chayote. The spines were serious business, though - they were thin and sharp enough to actually puncture skin! I thought it looked like a little green hedgehog. I wanted to keep it as a pet, but then mightyjesse's sister stabbed it and cut it up, so we ate it. :) He tasted sort of like a sweet, woody cucumber. :)

Coincidentally, I also found My Food Looks Funny today. Some silly, some fun, some staged, some just accidental awesome.

A hedgehog itself is just as cute, and more mobile and affectionate.

I did some research of heggies as pets...

Now I really want a hedgehog.

Hah, I was introduced to this critter's naked sibling last week by my brother's wife. Very tasty.

Heh. For a moment, I thought the post you were referring to was the one with Em in a linen tunic. I had a moment of "Whut? How did she spawn again without my knowing? Does I mean the doggies? um..."

Fruit. Got it. :P
