The Eggplant Has Spoken

Some lady saw the word GOD in an eggplant:

Eggplant

Somehow, this is big news. It’ll be bigger news when it goes up on eBay in 5… 4… 3…

Felicia Teske of Boothwyn says she was preparing fried eggplant for dinner Sunday evening and noticed that the seeds in one slice seemed to spell out the word “GOD”.

Felicia Teske and her husband put aside that slice of eggplant. But with the rest of it they had for dinner, which they say was simply divine.

Everyone laugh at the pun.

Now, look at the eggplant again. She sees “GOD.” I see something else:

Eggplant2

It’s not perfect. But is it really any more of a stretch than seeing the word “GOD” in there?

***Update***: Richard adds:

Here’s another example of how if you have a religious point of view you’ll see things one way, and if you have a scientific point of view you’ll see things another way:
You people are looking at it upside down. Turned right side up it looks exactly like the face in the full moon. I’m sure NASA will be very interested in this!

    Hahhahhah! I see God, but oh my, that is funny.

  • Logos

    I think both of them are a bit of a stretch . It doesn’t look like anything to me

    Eggplant is damn tasty.

    But usually you don’t see a dot above an “o”. What is that? A sun? Maybe it looks like a pretty picture with bunnies and flowers if you look hard enough.

    You are holding it upside down. It says “dig.” God wanted her to dig. She ignored him and now she will burn.

  • A. Person

    I want to know who this “GiD” person is and why they’re writing their name inside an eggplant

    that is like, so clever.

    congratulations, you are 100% non-christian!

    that’s pretty much all i’ve gained from this giant blog.

    I don’t see 666 but I do see a smiley face with four eyes above the middle o.

    This isn’t any more flaky than believing in memes, you know. Or the “Just So Stories”.

  • pan

    it says GOO with a small zero over the first o you dumbfux.

  • Tao Jones

    I wondered about the dot above the i in the middle too.

    It’s pretty ridiculous that this is news.

    A few months ago I made sushi with crab and red peppers and one piece looked *exactly* like piglet. Why didn’t I think to list that on ebay.

    I see GiQ

    Nah, it’s two big eyes, a small mouth and a very high nose. I’d say it was definitely an alien face. Clearly a warning that the greys are coming to abduct her.

    This is turning into the eggplant Rorschach test. I still say it’s the man in the moon. Either that or it’s two guys wearing hats talking with a campfire between them. They’re probably stoned and talking about memes or something:

    “Hey man, like how close are eggplants related to bananas?”
    “Don’ get religious on me dude. That stuff bums me out.”
    “I dunno man, I’m just trippin’ ’cause this eggplant is really cosmic, y’know? I mean it looks kinda like a giant berry on the outside, but it’s called an eggplant, but it’s not like an egg at all.”
    “Wow. You’re right dude. Like a koan. Hey is that piece done?”
    “Yeah, watch out it’s hot.”
    “Whoa, look dude, it like says ‘God’ inside.”
    (several minutes of helpless giggling until both fall asleep)
