A Warwickshire mother was astonished after finding the image of a seal pup while peeling potatoes for a Sunday roast.
Corinne Dolman, 40, was preparing lunch for her family on Easter Sunday morning when she did a ‘double take’.
The home bakery business owner had spotted an uncanny resemblance to the mammal in her potato peel that made her laugh, admitting she enjoys ‘a bit of nonsense’.
Three dimples on the side of the peel form a perfect little seal face, with indentations that coil for a mouth and edge of a flipper.
She snapped the undeniably cute peel, which came off potatoes destined to be roasted, to show the photo to her husband.
Nuneaton mother Corrine Dolman, 40, did a ‘double take’ when she spotted a likeness to a seal in her potato peel
Corrine, from Nuneaton, said: ‘It was Easter Sunday and I was up early prepping for Easter lunch before the kids got up – as I was half asleep, I did do a double take as I noticed it on the pile.
‘I actually took the photo to show my husband as it made me laugh how much it looked like a seal and I do like a bit of nonsense.
‘The potatoes were from Tesco in Bedworth and were destined to be roasties.’
She then shared the photo on Facebook to ‘raise a smile or two’, with the caption: ‘Surprised to see a seal pup in my potato peelings this morning.’
Her post racked up more than 113,000 reactions, 3,200 shares and 2,600 comments.
One person commented: ‘I was scrolling and it stopped me in my tracks. I had to zoom in… wow!’
It’s uncanny! Thousands of people online agree that Corinne’s peel looks just like a seal
Another suggested Corinne ‘preserve’ the peeling, because it was ‘so cute’.
While the peel has tickled thousands of people who saw the photo, Corrinne admitted that a seal is not the most seasonal image that could have appeared in her food.
She quipped: ‘It would have been more apt for Jesus to appear in my Easter spuds.’
That said, her seal peel does join a long line of animals and public figures to have appeared in food stuffs.
Just in the last year, people have spotted Boris Johnson in a chicken korma, Elvis in a pot of McDonald’s ketchup, Shakespeare in a lightbulb, Queen Elizabeth II in a cloud, John Lennon in a pint glass, Harry styles in a slab of bacon and the beloved character Shrek in both a curry and a tub of ice cream
