Bombay Pam and the Flatbread Gang

Three photos which you may find more or less appetizing, depending on what kind of person you are. First, that cool, new-fangled broccoli that has points. Can anyone tell me what this kind of broccoli is called? I really want to mention it as being superior when anyone else talks about regular broccoli.

Second, this is not spaghetti. But seriously, how could would this be if it were actually spaghetti? Like, spaghetti strands this long would take a seriously long time to make.

Finally, this painting of a woman hangs at LACMA. Do you think, as I do, that it was chosen for display because it totally looks like Kevin McDonald from Kids in the Hall in drag?

Respond or don’t!


  1. it's a Roman cauliflower also sometimes called a broccoflower.

  2. Did you take that picture of the broccoli weirdness? Because I kinda wanna add that to a post I'm working on about using veggies for wedding bouquets.

  3. Ella: Thanks.

    Megan: Yes, By all means, snag it. But can you credit me as Lemuel Gogglestein?

  4. Romanesco Broccoli. It's an approximate fractal.

    I freaking LOVE Kevin McDonald! I found this page while browsing images of him in drag. Thank you for posting this picture! XD
