What do Tonsils Look Like?

To me, tonsils look a lot like pink mandarin orange segments sitting on each side of the throat. My dad used to tell me that when he was a kid, he got a very bad tonsil infection, and his tonsils were so swollen that his doctor had to remove them with a scalpel and a surgical spoon!
