From the text..... picture a Cheerio with a tail.

"They also noticed a classic shape, which they began calling the shepherd's crook. Other Ebola experts have taken to calling this loop the eyebolt, after a bolt of the same name that can be found in a hardware store. It could also be described as a Cheerio with a long tail."
