A different kind of messy, indeed.
We have many tropes of messy food photo styling featured here:
- Mason jar
- Wood cutting board (and rustic wood coaster! Bonus!)
- Crumpled fabric (with frayed edges! SUPER bonus!)
- Artfully spilled ingredients
Judging from the artfully spilled ingredients, this smoothie is made of kale, Swiss chard, pineapple, and maybe some mint. The photo falls squarely into the category of photos where all the raw ingredients surround the finished product.
So what do we make of the pills?
Did someone empty one (or many) of the capsules' contents into the smoothie? Or, did someone just pour all these pills onto the counter in preparation for a nasty green smoothie to wash them down?
Or, possibly, someone has put a bunch of meth or cocaine (or a proprietary meth-cocaine blend) into 16 gelatin capsules and is going to swallow them all, chased by a green smoothie, in an effort to make everyone think he or she is taking supplements, but really he or she is hopped up on stimulants and is high as shit, and that's the only reason he or she can complete that Iron Man triathlon today? Possibly.
Thanks for sharing, Sean. And if anyone else comes across pictures where messy food is mixed with drugs, please send them along. This could be a new, stimulating trend.
