Look! Hello Ziti! Where'd You Come From?

We opened up a bag of orzo the other day to discover this: just one long ziti sitting uncomfortably out of place among its orzo cousins. Where'd it come from?

We had brief visions of doomed inter-pasta-clan love, or a stowaway trying to discover the inner lives of orzo.

We think that it probably just jumped conveyor belts by accident in the pasta factory and thus ended up in the wrong bag. We discarded the little ziti and went on with our orzo plans, but it made us curious. Have you ever found something unexpected in a package of food? Any horror stories? (It is almost Halloween, after all!) Or something surprising and funny? Tell us!
