Magpie Mystery Object. (47)


Abstract













I opened my Magpie to find
a shape that would not come to mind.
Don‘t want to be rude
But I had to conclude
“It came from a devious mind”!

Or is it a licorice pretzel?

  5. I saw someone had done a nice take on it being a mask - when I first saw it I thought it was a pair of balack framed specs (Groucho Marx style?) but then I put mine on and saw something quite different.

    Hope your not being badly effected by the flooding!

  6. Licorice pretzel? Only a devious mind such as yours could have come up with this! (I'll have to admit, it does have the exact color and texture of licorice.) ;)
