It's Organic? (It's Alive?)

I got the following text message and picture at right from my daughter:

Joe picked up this whacky piece of produce at the gro today. We don't know what is it but we're going to cook it and eat it anyway!

My response was:

Well it does look organic my only advice is to make sure it is dead before you cook it since being cooked alive is cruel thing to do to anyone (thing).

  1. You know that thing also looks very fractal in shape - the little cones on the side of the big one each seem to have a spiral pattern. I wonder if there is some simple generating function?
