Celebrity Look-A-Like

MB called me excitedly at work. I was eager to hear the news: Did he get a promotion at work? Win a prize? Were we about to go on a trip?

errrrrr.....not exactly. He was calling to ask me if I knew how to preserve something so we could list it on ebay and make big bucks LOL.

Here's what he discovered when he went to garden:

MB couldn't believe how much this eggplant resembled a dead celebrity. Any guess who?

[Unfortunately I didn't know how to preserve it, so it has already been consumed. Therefore, if you know how to preserve it, please don't tell me now as I'll get depressed :-( or maybe do tell me so when we find an Elvis eggplant next season I'll be able to list it!]

Bob Hope reincarnated! You should have at least tried to list it as a quick sale on eBay.

Yankee Girl said...

So funny!

Is it Bea Arthur? Could be....

Kathie @ my net finds said...

HAHAHAHAHA, that is hilarious! I have no idea how to preserve it...freeze dry it? haha.

for some reason I thought of Alfred Hitchcock...no idea why.

Kristin said...

I totally second Bob Hope.

Aunt Juicebox said...

I think Bob Hope too, although I suppose it could be Cyrano De Bergerac. I would have eaten it too. Ratatouille! You could have maybe frozen it whole and sold it on ebay? ROFL

Hell, I had no idea it was an eggplant let alone try and figure out the dead celebrity?

It depends on the imagination of the beholder.

Awesomeness! At least you've preserved it for posterity on your blog.

It's Richard Nixon. Don't you hear him saying "I am not a crook...necked squash."

Ha ha! That is too funny! That's a pretty cool looking eggplant. Though I have no idea how to preserve anything. Oh, by the way, I tagged you on my blog, I hope you don't mind. :-D

Okay,

I won't let you know that you can look preservation techniques up on Google. Yup I won't do that to you.

I had two gut reactions and they've both been mentioned (one more than the other, FWIW): Bob Hope or Richard Nixon.

I wouldn't know how to preserve it, either, so I guess eating it was a good plan...

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

Yep, that's totally the Bob Hope nose... :)
