Maybe Cunning Squirrels Have Taken Over

I don’t know why this amused me, but it did. I opened up a new pack of quick-cook spaghetti today (no matter what it says on the packet, normal pasta always takes nearer 20 minutes than 10 to cook) and was confronted by a curly piece of spaghetti. But, I hear you cry, isn’t spaghetti meant to be curly? Or at least wiggly? Yes, it is when it is cooked. This was a dry piece direct from the packet, surrounded by it’s very straight friends. In a very tenuous link to the continued homosexual penguin debate (thank you Chris :D) you could say it was bent.*

Being the sad individual that I am, I took a photo of this anomalous piece of pasta. You’ll have to trust me when I say that this is the state in which I took it from the pack. And that there’s been no photoshop other than some minor colour correction to try (and fail) to overcome my inadequacies as a photographer.

*I feel I should appologise for my sense of humour (or lack of it). In my defence, it has been a VERY long few days.
