Please Welcome My New Baby Brother



Having witnessed the most mutant looking lemon I've ever seen in my life, I am now convinced that my parents breed aliens in their backyard.



I should know. I'm one of them.

that is AWESOME.

actually, i remember coming across an entry on someone else's blog that had something similar and it is a real fruit - called buddha's hand. except your's looks like...a chicken's foot. LOL!

anyway, look up buddha's hand. you'll see. it's WAY more mutant than what your parents gave you. :)

Sarah,

I just looked up that Buddha's Hand thing, and my is it freaky! You're right, this one does look kinda like a chicken foot, huh? Too much dim sum perhaps? LOL!

Sam,

It's all genetics, you know...

Jeni,

Ditto comment to Sam: it's all genetics!

Hi Pam - It's a "male" lemon, big deal.... Ha! LOL! Kinda scary, like it might just grow some eyes and walk away.....

BoLA said...

Hahaha! too funny! ;)

That is one narley looking lemon.

Okay Pam, you gotta tell your parents that although Tiger Balm works on "people," it doesn't work on "lemon trees." I already had to tell that to my mom.

Sylvie said...

That is so weird looking. Take care of your new baby brother. Maybe you can make a "preserved lemon" out of him.

Grace said...

It looks like that squid guy from Futurama.. Only lemony.

when i was working at The Restaurant one night, we had a bigass buddha's hand by the kitchen window... maybe 12" in length, with a bumpy peel. it seriously looked like a yellow chicken foot (fung zhao!). i kept staring at it and wondering what planet it was from.

Try to sell that lemon on eBay. The eBay caption could read: "Looks just like a Picasso + Salvador Dali rendition of a religious figure--with several protruding weird things emanating from its head."

I showed your post to people in my forum and the burning question that has arisen is:

Is there fruit inside the "tentacles"?

Daily Gluttony said...

Kirk,

If it's a "male" lemon, then the question is why does it have 3??? LOL!

Kristy,

It is pretty funny, isn't it?

PE,

Damn, I left it at my parent's house...coulda made some money on Ebay! LOL!

Sylvie,

We always need to encourage our loved ones to strive for their future goals, right? ha ha

Grace,

OMG, you are so right about the Futurama thing.

EDNBM,

Leave it to Chinese people to come up w/ a lemon that looks like a fung zhao!

EJM,

OMG, I am dying laughing at your question!!! Truth is, I don't know--I left it at my parents house. I'll have to ask my mom!

Freaky! It's like the scene from "The Grudge" where the fingers come out of Sarah Michelle Gellar's head.

yoony said...

wow that's so cool. if the whole lemon tree birthed only these mutant babies, the would be even cooler. a basket of these would make an excellent centerpiece. :)

That's fantastic! I'm jealous. I want a mutant alien-like lemon! Thanks for sharing your rare find. (It does look like a Buddha's hand.)
