The Vegetable Horror

Never mind Jesus in a piece of toast, or Mother Teresa in a muffin, here's the real thing: Cthulhu in a parsnip.

Will the owner auction this holy relic on eBay? Surely the Miskatonic University would be willing to bid on it?

The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.
