"Appearances are often deceiving." -Aesop
While the Louvin Brothers might tell you that something else is more deceiving than appearances, as they sing
For your enjoyment, I present Things That Look Like Other Things! Some of my favorites are:
floor pillows that look like pancakes, complete with pats of butter,
a light fixture that looks like an ice-cream cone, perfect for your fluorescent bulbs,
kitchen utensils that look like household and garden tools,
a cocktail shaker that looks like a can of spraypaint,
a knife block that looks like a very unhappy voodoo doll,
a suitcase that looks like a sandwich,
a very meta fishbowl that looks like a fish itself,
and, perhaps the best of all, a trash can that looks like R2D2!
That knife block is amazing...
Oh, come on! How could you overlook the "floor mattress that looks like the Moon"?!? (August 19)
I was pretty tempted by the fish shaped fishbowl but then I remembered fish are incredibly boring pets. It's still awesome though.
Amazing, this sandwich suits me :)
Fish are not boring at all, Jennifer! My goldfish are better at playing with a laser pointer than my cat is.
Do not keep goldfish in a bowl like that though, it is FAR too small, keeping them in something like that is basically equivalent to torturing them.
A salt and pepper mill set that looks like Rubik's cube.
Neat stuff, especially the pancakes.
