Carrots do it, parsnips do it, squash – oh lala, yams – positively do it, tomatoes too and eggplants sometimes. What, you ask? Provide healthy nutrition of course. What about cucumbers and sweet potatoes? Absolutely. Nutrition for the body and mind as we witness the vegetables’ naughtier side, growing themselves into, er, dubious shapes. Nature rules; we seriously couldn’t make this stuff up! Or maybe, once we stopped laughing.

Who would've thought potatoes, the whole family of them, could be so suggestive?

10. Size doesn’t matter, does it?
Makes you look at vegetables in a whole new light, doesn’t it? But as funny or naughty as these vegetables may be, they do all have the same fate: they end up in a salad sooner or later. Luckily, their finders clicked a picture before preparing them to be eaten, to share their astonishing discoveries with the world. Well done; this collection sure made our day!
