  1. Oh, the horrors those green peppers have seen.

    This is pareidolia. I believe our collective ability to see these as faces is probably an evolutionary response. Our brains are always looking for recognizable patterns in the chaos and otherwise random noise. As an evolutionary trait, it might come from the need to be able to distinguish (potentially camouflaged) predators from their surroundings.
