Wondering; What the Heck Is It?

Ok, my wife found something yesterday that I am not sure I understand what it is.  Maybe you all can help figure this thing out.  A picture is worth a thousand words, so before I get the first 500 words written, I will show you a picture:

OK, is it a worm, or a creature from outer space, or a mutation, or something genetically altered, or just a figment of my imagination.  Have you ever seen anything like this before?  How about another view:
Would it help if I told you where my wife found it?  OK, it was found inside a vegetable.  Does that help?  How about another picture:
You want more information?  OK, it was found inside a sweet green pepper that I had in my salad last evening.  Here is the final picture I took before it attacked me:
Yes, it was inside a green peeper. After I finished my salad I went and got my camera and took the above pictures so if we were to disappear, there would be some clue as to what happened (grin). After I took the pictures, to protect my wife and dogs, I did the bravest thing; I ate it!! Funny, it tasted just like a green sweet pepper. I wonder if genetically altering it had anything to do with the strange shape inside. I wonder what they used in the alteration, maybe snake or fish or worm or eel genetic material. Your guess is as good as mine.

OK, I got to go. I am starting to turn green and I have the urge to coil up. Oh my!! The buttons are ripping off my shirt. I’m tuning into the hulk!! . . . Ok, maybe I just ate too much salad. I am a little full.

You all have a great New Year’s Eve and be safe if you party. I will try to go to bed early, but usually the neighbors put off so many fire works that I can’t get to sleep. Happy New Year!!!


  1. Good Lord Man, you not gonna eat that are you? Don't you remember What happen to all the crew with Sigourney Weaver in the movie Alien?
    STOP!!! Spit it out!!!

  2. I think it is a sprout. I've seen a lot of them. I eat them first.

  3. Did you your veggies from Japan by any chance?

  4. I've seen those baby peppers in some of my bell peppers over the past year!

    Sort of like a "pepper within a pepper", ya know?

    Must be some type of mutation with the seeds!

    HELLO...? Are you still there...??

  5. lol! it is just one of the seeds that germinated: a green pepper embryo, it would have grown into a pepper plant. If it had not been eaten!! hahahaha! it most likely would NOT have been the exact same "species", since most peppers are now hybrids. they are yummy and tender!

  6. Happy New Year Mr and Mrs DD, I hope it's a great one for you...

  7. Ben, thanks for the laugh, didn’t think of that.

    Oldfool, I have eaten a lot of peppers in my life and up until recently, I have never seen sprouts inside them. Is this natural or caused by genetically altering?

    Sixbears, I got them from Wal*Mart and they would have got them from the cheapest place. Japan may have been the source and from a garden next to the damaged power plant.

    Hermit, this is the first time I have seen them, I must have lived a protected life. . Yes, I am still here, working on those two rush jobs.

    Kellie, thanks for stopping by and giving me the information. So, it was an early pregnancy?

    Thanks Keith, and the same to you and the Tortoise.

  8. I always spent my half an hour to read this
