From the Department of Awesome Anthropomorphic Foodstuffs come these wonderful photos taken by a farmer in Hyogo prefecture, Japan, who unearthed a daikon radish that strongly resembles a figure swinging its arms and running for its life. It looks like it would be right at home as a creature in a Miyazaki film.

The imaginative farmer, who goes by the twitter handle @konsai_umemama, decided that such a fantastic vegetable deserves a more interesting fate than ending up on someone’s plate. And so they’ve set about placing the radish in a variety of humourous situations and then taking these great photos.

Happy Monday, Internet! We salute you with this anthropomorphic radish running for its life. Or getting ready to dance the day away? You decide. —Yowei
