Bizarre photo of fully peeled pomegranates has people slightly freaked out

LONDON, ENGLAND - OCTOBER 21: Fresh pomegranates are displayed at the World Fruit and Vegetable Show in the ExCeL exhibition centre on October 21, 2009 in London, England. The trade show is the UK's main exhibition for all aspects of the fruit and vegetable industry with over 300 exhibitors from around the world. Today the Royal Society urged the Government to invest 2 billion GBP into research for ways to improve crop production and to prevent world hunger. The Royal Society has said that global food production will have to increase by approximately 50 percent in 40 years. (Photo by Oli Scarff/Getty Images)

The internet is really great at providing answers to questions nobody asked. In this case, the question is “what does a perfectly peeled pomegranate look like?” As always, the internet delivered an answer, and it was horrifying:

It turns out that a peeled pomegranate looks like something out of a David Cronenberg body-horror movie. Just look at that thing! Jeff Goldblum could burst out of it at any moment. How could something so delicious look so foul?

This isn’t the first time this image has made the rounds on the internet. If you search “peeled pomegranate” on Twitter, you’ll notice that people were discussing this abomination way back in 2015.

But we shouldn’t be surprised by its ability to capture our attention. Much like the peeled watermelon image that also went viral, it’s not something we see every day. We’re used to devouring these things without ever really looking at them.

It looks like this Imgur user  wasn’t the only one to peel a pomegranate either, although most aren’t quite as odd looking.

The moral of the story is this: some things were not meant to be seen by human eyes. Especially if that thing is the true form of something we’re about to put in our bodies.
