A four-leafed clover: Imagine five four-leafed clovers, and one one-leafed clover, and you've got the idea. Or just click on the link and see an actual photo.

That's right, Buzz Creatures--a 21-leaf clover has been found by a clover enthusiast in Japan. Each leaf is luckier than the last, to the point where the top leaves are blisteringly lucky, and may only be observed through a welder's mask. So lucky.
As far as I can tell, no magic was used in creating or finding the clover, although the man who found it has been breeding many-leafed clovers for years. Since the discovery, he has become the Emperor of Neo-Japan (his term) and Duke of the Moon (his idea). No one can stop him.

Hrrmm, found? The article seems to say that Shigeo Obara has been cross breeding clover in his garden for the last 50 years. But, it isn't clear if this clover was the result of that or if he found it somewhere in the wild. Found or breed, still very impressive.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure he cross bred the little sucker. Still, he technically did find it, just in the same way I found a gallon of milk in my fridge this morning.
