Okay, I know I was supposed to be taking today off to do some stuff, which I am, but I just had to share this with you guys because it’s just too damn funny.
A few minutes ago, I was talking on the phone to my good friend, Shaun Robinson.
We were doing our typical girlfriends-shooting-the-breeze kinda thing. She was snacking on some cherries as she talked, when suddenly she noticed an unusual pattern about them.
She bought the cherries from a guy who was selling them on the side of the road. California is a state rich with farms and produce, so there are farmer’s markets everywhere and always lots of people selling fresh fruits and vegetables along the road. Nothing unusual about that.
The cherries were very sweet and tasty, but she kept getting not just one pit, but another smaller pit every time she ate one. She looked at one of the cherries as she talked to me. It had a smaller, deformed twin attached to it, hence the second smaller pit. She looked at another cherry. Also deformed. Then another. That was deformed, too. She fanned out the cherries on her kitchen counter to get a global glimpse.
Every single one of them had some sort of double-bubble thing happening or some weird growth bursting out of the top.
According to Shaun, the cherries the man had on display looked nothing like these. The ones on display were perfect and pretty and round like regular cherries. Once she agreed to get some, he reached in a cooler in the back and handed her these pre-bagged, ready-to-roll CHERNOBYL cherries.
LOL. I’m in tears right now, I’m laughing so hard. Every time I look at these pics of those deformed cherries…
