As if life wasn’t fraught with enough danger. There are terrorists lurking around every corner and now, pretend food. Yes, that’s right, there are things out there disguised as food that definitely are not food.

Check out these weird and wonderful things that you definitely should not eat, even though you’ll totally want to.

We Don’t Have Mushroom For This Donut

This is the meanest trick that nature ever pulled on anyone. It appears to be a tasty chocolate glazed donut but is, in fact, a mushroom. Boo.

The Scariest Fried Egg Ever

This looks just like a slightly undercooked fried egg, but lurking beneath is a jellyfish. Given that most jellyfish are venomous, it’s best avoided.

Not Egg-sactly What It Seems To Be

You’d be egg-stra angry if you ate these. It’s a wonderful collection of rocks that share the same visual characteristics as hen eggs.

The Crunchiest Chocolate Ever

You can almost taste this as you gaze at its delicate chocolatey exterior. Best not to get carried away, it’s actually a crystallized gemstone.

Meat That Might Fill A Hole In One

Yup, this is the inside of a decaying golf ball. It looks like beef or salmon or something “meaty.” It’s put us right off our breakfast, to be honest.

Washing Your Own Mouth Out

This wonderful seeming “bread” is something very unusual indeed. It’s what happens when you place a bar of soap in the microwave for a minute.

Another Sneaky Chocolate Donut

This time it’s a delicately chocolate-frosted ring donut. Except, it’s not. It’s another fungus playing a trick on us. We’re not cheering for team mushroom here.

That bit of bacon on the table? It’s not on the table, it’s in it. It’s an unusual marking in the stone.

The Bread That Would Break Your Teeth

It might look like a tasty hunk of French bread, but it’s really a lump of rock. It would make an awesome paperweight but a lousy lunch.

The Bad Broccoli Tree

We know that George Bush Sr. would have hated the sight of this tree and we’re not hugely keen either. So, not eating this would be easy.

These Celebrity Doppelgangers From The Past Have Us Seeing Double

Time travel is a mystifying concept. Much like the idea of extraterrestrial life, it has captured the human imagination for as long as we have existed. Today, it’s at the forefront of famous movie plots, most famously ‘Back to the Future,’ and pops up in late-night conversations about the universe and meaning of life. As of now, scientists have not been able to confirm whether traveling through time is possible, and though there isn’t any kind of hard evidence that proves human beings can time travel, these photos of celebrities alongside what appear to be them in other time periods will sure make you wonder.
