Smile, and the world will smile with you

It started when I noticed that my steering wheel looked eerily like Stitch from the Disney movie Lilo & Stitch:

I soon started noticing more and more of these faces everywhere around me. I found some more in the car, and when I didn't have the car, on the commute; I found them in the park, at work, at home; and at some point, I went from finding them to searching for them.

What a splendid idea!

I knelt under benches, struggled to peer into hatches and photographed seemingly random bits of machinery and ground. I'm pretty sure that some of the people watching me must have thought I was scooping out sites for a terrorist attack or something equally sinister, for I received some strange, strange looks. Here they are, the lot of them.
