The Human-faced Mango

Behold the “Mango with a Human Face“, as it was being called on the small town of Presidente Medici, state of Rondonia, northern Brazil. The eyes, brows and mouth were drawn with a pen, but the shapes are all natural.

That wouldn’t be that interesting, as funny-shaped vegetables are quite common, except for what the journalist told us about the events following the discovery of the bizarre tropical fruit.

According to “Farofino“, there were “people thinking it was the End of the Times, religious people joined in prayer, curious folks from everywhere flocked to the house of the man who found the mango. Well, the mango rot after a few days and the event was quickly forgotten.”

Such is the fate of the false vegetable prophets. Mere simulacra.
