Rock collector finds rare gemstone that looks like Cookie Monster

You never know what you're going to get when you crack open a geode-like rock called an agate, but a new specimen is even more surprising than usual: It looks just like Cookie Monster.

The agate, found in Soledade, a precious stone hotspot in southern Brazil, is a dead ringer for the blue, googly-eyed Sesame Street Muppet. After its owner, California mineral collector Mike Bowers, posted about the agate on Facebook, it went viral, with write-ups in newspapers from Australia to Israel to the United States.

"I didn't realize that Cookie Monster was so well known and part of the world cultural heritage!" Bowers told Live Science. He's since been contacted by the actor who plays Cookie Monster on "Sesame Street," he said.

You've got to get someone else to write your material.

Nature can be amazing.

 

Yep.  And maybe NOW some might begin to understand why many are doing their best to preserve nature.   B)   And who don't think their concern or efforts are a "scam".  :angry:

Where is Cliff Clavin when you need him (didn't he used to claim he would find strange objects like this); or, worse yet, seeing Jesus' image in a grilled cheese sandwich (that was actually made some years ago)!

This is one of the best examples of Pareidolia to date.

Holy rust stains!
