The Dayalets

Brace yourself for The Dayalets; an instructional (and I use that word loosely) “suiatable for framing” series of food beasts designed to hang in doctors’ offices.


The idea was the educate the masses about vitamin deficiencies and nutritional imbalances. Wasn’t there a pamphlet they could hand out?



While tempting to generate my own sarcastic commentary for each of these, I think it’s only fair to direct you to the source, where the curator has taken a good deal of time to display and write commentary for the entire series (featuring gems such gems as “This looks like some self-proclaimed sex expert circa 1951.”)


I actually went through the whole series and was repeatedly stunned by these creations. Who wants one on the food table at my next party?

I wasn’t joking when I said “suitable for framing.”

      Suddenly I can see the ever-creative Andy Clarke playing with his food and making something like these. πŸ™‚

  2. Oh Dana you’re right, that site’s brilliant; the curator’s comments are genius! -Nx

    P.S., Am I the only one now drooling for a Double Burger Bill, with a large side order of Starchy Pete…? πŸ˜‰

  3. Hahaha, and I was initially thinking this will make most people hungry, and go straight to the restaurant (or market) from the doctors office. It’s pretty creative actually, gross art with food, that is.
