I think I have a new phobia:


"Uncanny" (cf uncanny valley) just doesn't cut it. Unease? No. This is much more like "queasy". It's not merely food, either: https://photos.app.goo.gl/Cc7afBxw1c9crX1z6 I wonder if Luddites get queasy when they look at, say, the Cybertruck? Maybe that's the underlying cause for coal rollers and things like this: https://okcfarmtruck.com/products/i-identify-as-a-prius-sticker

But, to be honest, those creepy images of food aren't half as quease-inducing as this: https://www.qwant.com/?client=opensearch&t=images&q=spider+molt&o=0%3AFFFCDCED512D753796EFCB1283F673A58ACBD772 And I love spiders... I just don't love images of holes.
