The anti-fart vegetable (fruit for pedants). Or anyway that’s supposed to be the etymological meaning of “aubergine.”
Being literal isn’t always preferable (don’t do tell Ham).

Looks more like a fat man with a bad wig having a dance

There I was innocently thinking it had 2 phalluses, only to find out all about a French Tickler.

It looks like it’s dancing, no? I hate to do this but…

Instead of a giant purple nutsack – ok, I’ll admit I did see that first – I see an angry Mr Weatherbee.
This reminds of Purple Tentacle. :)

OMGless is that a phallus? And it’s got two mini-phalluses, errr mini-phallie?!!? I’m so excited I don’t care. Holy shit make me airtight, plug all my orifices so I can feel humiliated and derogated in this society. Quick! Quick! Quick! Thelonious, here’s my camera take a picture and post it on the internet, Classical cipher comment on the historical dominant male role of privilege while I cummmmmmm.
WAIT!!!! Is that the god in three persons in one eggplant??
Never mind it’s just a mutant eggplant.

Well, it’s obvious that this vegetable is simply trying to achieve perfection by sprouting tentacles.

The fuck? Your goats on fire or something?
So, anyway, when did Barbapapa get that haircut?

I’ve actually seen smaller protrusions than that.

I’d like to see it with a couple of big googly eyes and dancing.
Then I’d accuse it of wearing a toupee.

I must be tired if I didn’t immediately see the sexual imagery. I though it was sprouting limbs in order to take vengeance against all humans who have eaten his vegetable brethren.
18 August 2011 at 3:47 am
We call it “lilek”. Finally an interesting vegetable that DOESN’T look like a penis.
18 August 2011 at 4:38 am
I see this as the aubergine shrugging like the Fonz going “Eyyyy”
18 August 2011 at 7:28 am
Aww, it’s waving “hi” at us!

18 August 2011 at 8:29 am
Yeah, my immediate mental reaction was that it’s doing that “Up! Up!” thing toddlers do. That or it just needs to be captioned with ” ‘sup?”
18 August 2011 at 8:45 am
Okay, so my first thought was, “Is that an eggplant, or are you just happy to see me?” but it reminded me of a friend who had a vasectomy after a botched surgery and then he decided to show everyone the surgeon’s handiwork. Let’s just say “looks like an eggplant” was heard a few times. this was not a memory I needed. Thanks PZ.

presenting the double pronged eggplant …
the new atheists nightmare!

This gives a whole new meaning to “Don’t play with your food.”

Did anyone else see it as the reincarnation of Fonzie? No? Just me then…

Very cool! I once got an eggplant that looked like Nixon. I should have kept it but I was hungry so I ate it.

What if we don’t _want_ to sign in with WP IDs? Does TypePad know about FreeThought Blogs?
I can’t decide if it’s a happy, dancing eggplant or a cross between an eggplant and a boxing glove.
