OK, I almost got booted out of the store trying to photograph these this week:
...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.
Since this one's fairly easy I'm requesting that guessers post not only the common name, but also its country of origin.
First prize this week is a group hug from the New Times staff. Second prize is a bunny with a pancake on its head.
Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering South Florida with no paywalls.
