  1. I was thinking colander at first, but I agree with Brian.

    Either that or it’s a close up view of Sarah Palin’s head.

  2. I think it’s really a close up of this little guy’s tongue.

    But, seriously. A washing machine? No. This is clearly Iquotari. You can tell by the precisely space holes.

    These “Icks” are absolutely nuts about bahol at this time of the year. It’s sort of a sweet tortilla made out of the equivalent of blue corn, a tree sap not unlike maple syrup, and samsushi eggs. Traditionalists mix it, shape it into a ball about the size of a breadfruit, and let it age for a full week. This allows the concoction to ferment. Then, the “dough” is flattening it into paper thin wafers. The holes make sure that there is an even heat distribution when it is all flash baked. The process, heat + alcohol, instantly melts the “sugar” in the treesap and eggs, resulting in that shiny/smooth texture shown in the picture.

    Bahol itself was originally just a candy treat, but tradition has transformed it into a sort of celebration of patriotism. During the 47 year long war with the Ainsca, the “Ick” children contributed to the effort by making tons and tons of this stuff and sending it to the soldiers fighting the war. It developed the same sort of mythology associated with chocolate bars after in the US Military.
