Just because it's so weird and beautiful, because it's so wrong it's right, because that shade of magenta is so rarely associated with any naturally originated food, today's Photo of the Day is the pickled egg from Philippe the Original, where it sits in a massive countertop jar with its brethren, the trophies of some intergalactic serial killer plucking alien eyeballs from his vividly hued victims.

And a reminder that if you have any brilliant shots of food you've taken around town recently, you might consider uploading them on our LA Weekly Flickr pool. Never know where they might show up.
