Pic Today 1/11/11


FOOD SHAPED LIKE PEOPLE

While photographing a recent gourmet dining event,
a guest noticed one of his "baked apple chips"
bore a striking resemblance to
U.S. President Abraham Lincoln.
(I asked to photograph his remarkable chip.)

The guest then carefully wrapped his presidential chip
between two cards, and slipped it in his pocket.
(Upon further research, I discovered why.)

Consider these facts:

o Last month, two sisters from Virginia
sold their Illinois-shaped corn flake
on E-Bay for $1,350.

o Earlier last year, an image and likeness
of the Virgin Mary, burned on a piece of
French Toast, was purchased by a casino
on E-Bay for $28,000.

o Vast sums of money are spent weekly on
various foods shaped like body parts,
especially the sexual anatomy.

o People spend ridiculous amounts of money
for silly things, on E-Bay.

(Lesson: Watch your food carefully!
There's money in recognizable food shapes.)
