It used to be that people claimed to see the outline of the Virgin Mary in a piece of toast. Now, the Internet is saying it sees E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial on the verge of climax in a glaze-covered Cinnamon Roll. Times have apparently changed since 1982.
Though the origins of the photo are somewhat murky, the picture of the sticky, alien-looking pastry began circulating on Reddit and Twitter this week, with users turning the image into increasingly NSFW memes. Users who insisted on making “E.T., scone home” jokes were mercilessly mocked ("That's a honeybun, you uncultured fuck."), while captions like “Why my cinnamon roll look like E.T. bus a nut?” were retweeted hundreds of thousands of times.
