Bambi Sighting in my Hummus

Every year or so, it seems, there is a sighting of the Virgin Mary.. on tv screens, in hospitals, under an underpass on the freeway...

Then there are the vegetables and chips that resemble the famous -- or portions of the famous -- or things in the 'real' world.

Yesterday, I had what I think was the first sighting of Bambi in Hummus. I was just nibbling away last night when I noticed something in the top center of my container of hummus.

The discerning among you will no doubt notice that I did not decant my hummus but rather was eating it straight out of the container. Sigh. It TASTES better that way and there is only ME eating this so it is not as derelictus in majorum as it may appear.







Notice the top center item.

Now, the exact significance of this sighting is not clear to me at the present, however the truth in this will come out in the fullness of time. I will accept with gratitude any speculation from those of you who may be more enlightened in the area of apparitions in food than I am.

Is Bambi trying to send me a message? He appears to be leaping over something.. clouds perhaps? Urging me to take on new challenges? Or he could be just lying down in a nice hummus meadow, encouraging me to take it easy...

Feel free to speculate, meanwhile, dear reader, after I photographed him.... I ate him.

Clearly it's been a long winter, Jordi. Maybe you should get out a little more?

You are really flipping out. I am coming up to visit tomorrow and stop eating hummus. You're scaring me.

I don't know what to say. Maybe avert your eyes while eating pureed foods?

Are you sure that's not Rudolph?

Further proof that Hudson Heights more and more resembles a magical Disney fantasy-land.
