The Air Force One chefs sure know how to serve up ghoulish delights for Halloween.

Tessa Berenson, a Time magazine White House correspondent, shared a snapshot of the spirited meal featuring a stuffed bell pepper carved out like a jack-o'-lantern to show that the AF1 culinary wizards were in the spirit.


But what is that misshapen morsel plopped onto the smaller plate?

People studied the unidentifiable mush from the viral photo.

People took a stab at guessing what it is.

Could it be a carb, a meat, or perhaps an organ to fit in with the spooky theme?

CNN's senior diplomatic correspondent Michelle Kosinski asked:

"Is it chicken n gravy, or scone n frosting? Is it black and pink, or yellow and white? A trick, or treat? America demands answers."

A handful of people found a pulse on the mystery.


Whose answer would you go with?



As if we already have enough division in our country.


If it is a baked good, its misshapen presentation makes it look unpalatable for something served on AF1.



This amateur cook was especially perplexed.

Speaking of stuffed peppers, the hue of this one looks oddly familiar..

Overall thoughts...




Since the culinary experts are known for their " legendary" cuisine, I'm sure all the items are delicious, regardless of their appearance on the tray.

But in all deference to the hard-working chefs, the menu offerings here consisting of a glazed scone (or chicken), undressed salad and a raw bell pepper that looks like something from a fourth grade art class, look more like a trick than it does a treat.

Sometimes life just doesn't have our best interests at heart.

You've hurt yourself in the kitchen, you've hurt yourself in the garden, you've hurt yourself working around the house. But have you ever hurt yourself while drinking water? Have you ever injured yourself while looking at the microwave?

When we think of teenagers one of the first things that comes to mind is the idea that they have a total know-it-all thing going on. I'll be honest, as a teen I was convinced I had things at least mostly figured out. Oh god, so wrong. So very, very wrong.

So now that I'm an adult, there are tons of things I try to explain to the kids and teens in my life, but I know they just sit and stare at me blankly the way I did to my family members who tried to guide me. It's a cycle, I've just come to accept it.

We can all agree getting older is the worst decision we make as humans, right? Who thought this was the best way to live our lives? Being a kid was the best! Everything seemed to be easier, including playing sports, making friends, somehow learning foreign languages without taking four years of college courses. But then...you grow up, losing all those skills.
