The lights are on
Update: There is no way this is a coincidence. Just five months ago, a first Half-Life onion ring appeared online. Now there is another. This one looks much tastier.
With E3 only a week away, this could be Valve's elaborate way of building excitement for an announcement.

Some people see The Virgin Mary or Jesus Christ in their food. Gamers see Half-Life 3.
Reddit user and clever username creator ScubaBuddha posted the most convincing evidence I have seen to date of a Half-Life 3, or a Half-Life 2: Episode 3, or a Half-Life 4 (I think they may just skip three altogether) announcement waiting in the wings. Food, especially ringed shaped food, doesn't just randomly turn into something that vaguely resembles a Half-Life logo. You cannot deny that Gabe Newell had his hand in this in some way. And by, "you cannot deny," I mean I will go through the comments section and delete any comments that say that this has nothing to do with a new Half-Life.
Email the author Kyle Hilliard, or follow on Twitter, Google+, Facebook, and Game Informer.
This is the most convincing piece of evidence of the existence of HL3.
Keep trollin', Game Informer
Wow!! who wrote this article? Chris Chase?! way to go GI staff you guys have character; you are real turds.
Half Life is rather boring...nothing spectacular about it at all, or at least i personally don't see anything special in it...
Silly people, Valve can't count to 3.
I still dont see how this is proof of the existence of half life 2 episode 2 part 1
Valve, your clearly driving all of your 'hardened' fans insane... Please show us some mercy and give us HALFE LIFE 3!
Well I'm convinced...
Kinda looks like a unused dried up condom, LOL.
This just proves how ingenious Valve and especially Newell really are. They've actually payed off Jesus to take a day off and advertise their game for that one day through random occurrences...
11 months! The apocalypse! Half Life 3 will come out AND the Combine will invade on the same day!
"Some people see The Virgin Mary or Jesus Christ in their food. Gamers see Half-Life 3."
Yes, we finally have a real clue! Now we have to do tests on that onion ring to find the hidden release date on it!
You know what? I don't care any more. Forget you Valve, you're a bunch of effing trolls and I'm sick of your shenanigans. I'm done with you.
Kyle, this has absolutely nothing to do with Half-Life 3. Open your eyes, man!
...Sorry, couldn't resist.
It's the missing link for Half-Life 3 to have a release!
I see another troll from Newell.
