Looking at a poster the wrong way.

I just glanced at this intended-to-be-gorgeous image in an ad for the movie "Little Children." Focusing on Kate Winslet's face, I had the impression that the mass of flesh in the foreground was part of her body. I was all man, Kate Winslet has one crazy-looking thigh.

Put your thumb over Patrick Wilson's head in this one.

Now what do you see?

What do you see in this photo of Bush? http://www.planetperplex.com/en/img.php?id=72 Hit Ctrl-A to get a hint.

As a child of the sixties, I also see things that are not there at times. There is another photo of a stream in the woods, you are supposed to find eight hidden faces. I found fourteen.

Hmmm. Interesting. What Bill Gates has to do with George Bush is unclear to me.

I find the picture of adults in bed for movie titled Little Children a tad bit troubling, but then, I was a little child myself through the 60's.

Adults as children is a popular figure of speech. Reminds me of: "We're children needing other children/And yet letting our grown-up pride/Hide all the need inside/Acting more like children than children..."

But maybe in our pedophilia-sensitive times, it's no good anymore.

Well, in context, the problem is the very next line of that song, Ann.

I feel another darn worm coming on. That means I'm gonna have to postpone, for short while, listening to your latest podcast and dial up that song first.

Sigh.

It is a rather odd picture to use.

Chevyiii's link needs to be seen in IE to work.
