For example, there is a leg, a foot, a bagel (though it’s a crummy-looking, mass-produced bagel that’s provoking ire in New Yorkers, and probably in Montrealers as well), a salt shaker, a roll of toilet paper, a bar of soap, a basket of laundry, even a safety pin.


Also: there’s a head of lettuce, a cupcake, and what looks like a bundt cake (it’s actually a traditional Chinese moon cake, which as far as we’re concerned definitely counts as a carb).
