Weird, will be a word too modest. Maverick, ok. Here’s a farmer from China, who, after a lot of effort, has been able to create pears the shape of mini Buddhas.

Hao Xianzhang, a peasant residing in Handan city in north China’s Hebei province, has grown 10,000 mini Buddhas in his orchard, which he plans to export to the UK.

BuddhaA wonder this huge ought to cost high, and indeed, Xianzhang has priced his pears at $5 each. Despite the cost, the people of his hometown Hexia are buying them up like hotcakes.
