From the magical blog known as Waxy.org, run by the ever-eclectic Andy Baio, comes a tale that seems beyond belief: Summer Allen-Gibson, who runs a foodie blog with her partner Alicia Carrier, spotted what looked to be tiny heads hidden in a picture of broccoli on the outside of a package of frozen vegetables. She wasn’t hallucinating — as the photos she posted on the blog show, there are in fact tiny little smiling people mixed in with the broccoli spears, coloured the exact same shade of green so they are difficult (but not impossible) to see. According to some of the comments, graphic artists apparently do this with headshots of friends and family as a gag. I wonder how often this kind of thing happens and no one notices.
