Religious believers are flocking to a makeshift shrine twice a day to pray to an aubergine that looks like a Hindu god.

Praful Visram and his wife Rekha believe the opened eggplant looks like Ganesh, the multi-armed deity with an elephant's head.

The caterer from Leicester claims that the Hindu gods have blessed him and his family with the sacred vegetable and he is honouring their wishes by putting it on display.

LOL, i can't believe what i read sometimes. If it isn't Jesus on nacho chip, or the virgin Mary in a cup cake, we now have  Ganesh in a egg plant. Whats next i wonder.

My imagination is not as good as theirs cos I just can`t see it. But hey, they want to compare their god to a vegetable, so be it!

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

I'm glad they didn't get to peek at a certain bit of a part of my anatomy ... I'll be to embarrassed to have been prayed upon ...

Just curious, why are you embarrassed by this?
