When Nancy Taylor, one of the kitchen staff at the Fun and Friends Senior Center in Thayer and the grower of the pepper, started cutting open this red pepper she saw a strange thing in the center of it: a smiley face. The smiley face core went all the way through the red pepper and could even be seen on the underside of the stem. "I wonder what we'd get for it if we sold it on Ebay?" Shelia Smith, of the Senior Center, said. "Probably nothing," she laughed.
