My first thought is that you are playing a trick on us, that you just stuck the okra there. However, it did appear you snapped it off. Call the County Agent and show him. If you did not line up those pods, this is just to spooky for me. Now, I am afraid they will grab my feet when I get out of bed. Nope, I never outgrew that fear of a monster under the bed.
Okay, you got me. But, in my defense I was weak from the heat, not thinking right.
