Women in a Publix grocery store


This picture makes me nervous. Is it sexual? Cultish? Alien? I feel like the Indian woman is saying, "You're right. I understand now why you have filled your cart with these turnip bunches. It all makes so much sense."

Nah. It's all about, "See how nice and round and firm this turnip is?"
"Yes, yes, I see. Let me feel it again."

I think it might be a forced perspective issue and both buggies are the same size.
