what the ......


Don't click.

I'm sorry. This is the second day in a row this image has appeared on a website I visit regularly, and it keeps grabbing my eyeballs.

What is it? What isn't it? What do you think it is? Am I the only one who thinks it's disorienting?

It's the thumb and index finger of someone's right hand holding a mosquito.

well yeah ... but each time this thumbnail popped up on Google News, my brain screamed it was the crack of some guy's ass. A giant Plumber's Smile.

My vision is excellent, so there must be something Wrong with the part of my brain that processes and makes sense out of the images I see. They want to show me important medical images about Eastern Equine Encephalitis.

My brain wants to see Ass Cracks.

hmm. I wonder what Freud would say.

Does Freud specifically write about big hairy butt?

I don't know the english term for it, I only read Freud in german. In german we call it Freudsche Fehlleistung, misspelling or misreading a word, idea or in your case even an image and putting it into a totally different context. can't think of an example in english but I got one in german: herrenloser ärmelpullover instead of ärmelloser herrenpullover. Or check out Freud's Psychologie des Alltagslebens. you simply made the wrong mental association while seeing this image (almost like this Rorschach test thingy)
