Halo Merchandising You Never Even Imagined

Okay, fine, we will chalk this one up to pareidolia right off the bat, but I had to document this just to get it out of my system.  Consider this my group therapy session.  I show you what I see and you laugh in my face.

My wife likes having birds around the house to look at, and got tired of the squirrels trashing the birdfeeders she was buying, so she decided to grab this one that claimed it was squirrel-proof.  It’s metal, so they can’t chew through it, and it has this bar out front, that if anything heavier than a few birds tries to land on it, forces the feed tray to shut.  It’s even got these windows in front that let you see what the feed level is at.

Do you see it?

My only problem is that every time I see it out the back window, all I see is this cubist Master Chief Mjolnir Armor helmet hanging from the tree.  With like, birds feeding from its innards.  It has the kinda golden reflective lense, the jaw structure.  It even has the little visor, and it’s green.  It’s driving me nuts, so I figured I’d share it with you so you could all either see it too or point at me and laugh.

I even decided to photoshop what it would look like as a helmet replacement:

Oh god.  I am indeed crazy.  That looks awful.
