Came across this funny picture today.

What's wrong with her legs!!



If you look closely she's carrying a bag of popcorn.

Haha, that's pretty cool. Thanks for posting that. Now I can't "unsee" the popcorn.

I've got one, but I don't know if it's going to appear correctly here. Here's the link:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/jbenson2/3095012162/

As you can see (I hope), it's a very old photo. Looks like two people, and the seated one appears to have a giant Jesus head in his lap. It's actually a baby sitting on his knee. Last time I looked at it, it took me a very long time to see it correctly, and, upon finding the image online now, I had to follow the hints posted below the photo in order to see the baby. I don't know the story behind this photo, but it must have freaked out all parties involved for a long time!

Baby has a bonnet on - boy I had to work hard to see it!

Yes me too. You naturally assume the baby is looking the same direction as 'Jesus' but he/she is actually looking away from the man holding them.

I too cannot un-see the popcorn now either.

If you look closely, the guy with the baby is wearing a Covid mask so it must have only been taken in the last 6 months.

It's amazing how our brains try to make sense of what we're seeing. Even after finally seeing the baby on the man's knee my brain still wants to see the large Jesus head.

+1, Andromeda.

I thought it was a little cruel pointing out her skinny legs or prosthesis until I read the 'punch line'. Great!

And now we know why eye witness accounts are so unreliable

I am reminded of those hidden image 3 D posters


And then there is Bev Dolittle




Or the incredible work of M.C. Escher

Very cool. I saw the guitar quickly but took a few seconds to see the lady.

Here's a famous one I've seen many times. I imagine most of you have also but just in case ......



It's both an old woman and a young woman. Who did you see first?

I saw the young woman first, which at my age I guess makes me either somewhat of a dirty old man, or a dreamer
