Avengers: Age of Ultron is about to make ninety-trillion dollars at the box office… give or take. So, it only makes sense that the movie gets its proper Sesame Street parody.

Aveggies: Age of Bon Bon is a fruit and vegetable-themed superhero flick, starring plant-based protagonists. Dr. Brownie, Onion Man, Captain Americauliflower, Black Bean Widow, Mighty Corn, and Zuchin-eye team up to battle the evil Bon Bon and giant cookie spaceships.

The puns and Muppet violence is plentiful. We won’t give away the ending, but let’s just say that another giant green monster comes to the rescue. Please watch this…

The Light Inside, A Photo Series of Glowing Fruits and Vegetables

zaciu8

Brought to us by Romanian photographer Radu Zaciu, The Light Inside is a wonderful photo series of glowing fruits and vegetables.

Created by placing a light source inside pieces of produce, the project was inspired by the German word for ‘lightbulb’ (glühbirne) — which translates to ‘glowing pear.’

The result is a surreal photo series that often resembles a painting, X-Ray, or planet. Check out more below, or over at Zaciu’s Flickr site.
