Citrus Incognito

You know the Vegetable Liberation Army as a rag-tag band of veggie guerilla warriors, fearless and unstoppable! But do you know that sometimes those fearless roots, stems and leaves need help? Help in the form of an intel gathering band of citrus? Meet three shadowy citrus of legend: Limon, Lime and Lemon are Citrus Incognito!

Here's the gang before going undercover. Notice how they look like your average citrus citizens?



Here are the citrus comrades in disguise. Transformed and dangerous!



Limon in bee-you-ti-ful pink coif! Limon can seduce any man with that big sexy hair and seduction is what this citrus half-breed uses as its most effective weapon.



Lime with amazing coiling arms! Not only do Lime's arms serve to disguise him as a deceitful fruit and vegetable eating human monster, but due to their length he is able to reach virtually any object atop a high shelf. Handy! (...Um, no pun intended.)



Lemon in infrared goggle! Night vision is key when doing midnight market reconnaissance.



Big round of applause for the most stealth members of the food pyramid: Citrus Incognito!

I am sooo loving the eyelids! Nice touch! I'm with Drew - I want a little squeeze!

Jane said...

Fantastic! Just I what I need for a morning laugh. I wouldn't squeeze one though, as I imagine the eyeball would leap out and squirt enough industrial-strength citric acid to blind you.

I have visions of the Mango Mafia gearing up to fight in the produce wars. Oh no, The Carrot Cartel are teaming up with the Radish Radicals to try and overtake the produce stand.
OMG, I must be very tired or you are somehow getting into my mind and taking control. :0

kath red said...

I love all of your eyeball creations!! I never knew crocheting could be soooo COOL!!! I will have to show these to my mother, since all she crochets is baby blankets!!! Those eyeballs need to go on some sweaters for this fall, or maybe earrings!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am going to add your link, so I can keep up with your fiber art.
