I suppose I should provide a link for anyone not aware of what Penrose tiling is.
Basically, the (unaltered) pattern is composed entirely of two specific figures -- kites and darts -- and named after mathematician Sir Roger Penrose. They're known for their beauty and the fact that they are not symmetrical even though they look like they should be.

Someday I hope to have a penrose-tiled bathroom. Possibly a little more subdued colors than your candyland :-)

Refrain from taking anymore of whatever candy you're ingesting. It's obviously laced with something you cannot handle.
