...evidently management doesn't look kindly on paparazzi skulking around the produce aisle. Pictured above, not exactly the Nicole Kidmans of the botanic world, these have a face only a mother could love. But they taste good, which only goes to show that true beauty is on the inside.
Or, as The Prophet says:
Beauty is not in the face;
beauty is a light in the heart.
