Relax, turtle. I eat only your pecan brothers and sisters.

A turtle, mysteriously appearing in a bundt cake! I would give it a taste, but it'll probably sell on ebay first.
Lots of folks like turtles.
Maybe it's because they're introverts like me, and envy their ability to pull into their shells whenever they want.

and weird turtle smiles.
Or their love of turtle togetherness.
