An Australian man has carved out 15 minutes of food fame for himself: Phil Ferguson of Melbourne knits hats and head gear in the shapes of common and popular foods, poses with them in photographs, and then posts them to his account @chiliphilly. The representations are exacting, but Ferguson's serious mug may really be why people keep clicking "like."
