OWNER'S NAME: Wynne
LOCATION: San Jose, California
EGGPLANT QUOTE: do a happy hop
COMMENTS: Though Wynne likes to hop, and hop rather happily, she is pictured here attempting to eat her mother's ceramic eggplant. We have no idea why this is.
OWNER'S NAME: Maia
LOCATION: Rio Rancho, New Mexico
EGGPLANT QUOTE: never act on the advice of bananas
COMMENTS: In protest of the Iraq War, Maia had set up her own war memorial, complete with tiny plastic combat boots and a tombstone among other items. When she received this eggplant for her 9th birthday, she decided the bananas mentioned—whose advise we ought not heed—could be interpreted to include our country's commander-in-chief who launched the unnecessary and disastrous war. Her stray eggplant has now become a part of her war memorial installation.
