When I was browsing my profile visitors the other day, this little ditty caught my eye:
Sorry you had to see this friends! And very sorry, any friends who opened this at work or near children.
First, let’s talk about what’s on everyone’s mind. What is this image? Is it a head? Is it a chin? Is it a butt?
This reminds me of those tricky pictures people used to show you in junior high school art class to make the point “people see different things in images?” Remember this one? I always saw the old lady first, which, according to Ms. Fleming, meant that I was “closer to the end of life,” then the people who saw the pretty young girl.
Let’s talk about what you could see:
It’s a face: The lips are at the top of the photo, and the T-shirt and neck are at the bottom. The star of the photo is the chin. This gentleman wanted to attract the ladies by showing off that he’s too busy to shave, and prefers to maintain a facial hair situation that involves, for lack of a better description, “a lil bit of this and a lil bit of that.” And, that he’s no spring chicken, and already proudly going gray. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. But this guy’s no Danny Ocean.
It’s a butt: This is what I thought initially. There is a defined crack. And there are two cheeks. And that hair is very coarse, and curly, and looks like no one has groomed it in awhile. Clearly, the good people at OKC do not think it’s a butt, or they’d remove the image. But it’s possible that two OKC site administrators sat in their office and experienced the same confusion:
OKC site administrator 1: Hey, should we take down this image? It looks like a butt!
OKC site administrator 2: No, it’s somebody’s chin, can’t see you the lips, and the T-shirt?
OKC site administrator 1: I don’t know man, those lips look like a crack…
OKC site administrator 2: Oh well, let’s just leave it up. Anyone showing this terrible judgement in profile photo selection doesn’t deserve to get messages anyway…
Bottom line is: butts that look like heads and heads that look like butts should NOT be featured on an online dating site. Or really, anywhere, except a comedic bit from Cool Runnings.
And, the final mystery: Who took this picture, and how? Was it a friend who put an Iphone camera in his buddy’s mouth? Is this a self-shot GONE WRONG? Is this photo shoot a dirty little relic from a photographer/dirty model role play that resulted in some naked booty shots?
Stayed tuned folks, we’re going to give Detectives Stabler and Benson a break from investigating homicides and get them on the case!
