pentagons don’t tesselate

that title, by the way, will be the name of my band if i ever form one. we tried to fit these okra slices into a pattern like a honeycomb or a soccer ball, but discovered, and later confirmed online, that pentagons don’t fit together like that. they don’t tesselate. on the other hand, just look at them. little pockets of lacework. who cares if they don’t tesselate. just let them be their beautiful selves.

    You could build an okra dodecahedron (regular)! Sewn together with fine copper wire. One per bulb on a string of lights.
