@boomerang,
How old is Mo (I'm sure I've already seen you say so somewhere but they grow like weeds, I thought sozlet was still around 6 or so)? I think he may be right about the picture, I'm having a hard time buying that they don't at least see human figures.

@Shapeless,
Took a long time to spot the old woman. Neat, thanks.

I had been waiting on Sozlet... and I'll like seeing other youngster responses too, because it took awhile to see them dolphins too. Love Mo’s answer.

@Shapeless,
I've seen that one before as well, in fact years ago I copied it in ink:

Mo saw "two people playing in a puddle of water inside a jar. What a stupid picture. Can I watch cartoons now?"
The community has voted this as the best answer.

When my daughter was 4 years old, she started reading storybooks out loud. She was reading a story about a girl whose pet bird was very lonely. Then the bird was introduced to a female bird at a friend's house. The story mentions that soon "they made a baby bird". My daughter stopped reading and commented, "They must have used Play-Doh or something."

If nothing strikes you as odd, take or stop taking acid. Wink

@Robert Gentel,
Mo is 7 8/12ths.

I recall something from an art theory class that said people will always try to organize unknown images into human shapes first since the body is the most recognizable form. I agree that not seeing bodies would be kind of odd.

Anyway. I've spent the last few hours reenacting "Jaws" in a Mo-made mud puddle in the front yard, thanks to you. So, thanks Robert, that was fun!

(Hmmmm...... I wonder what would happen if I showed Mr. B this picture when he got home tonight........)


"Must have used play-do", damn brilliant, wandel!

@OCCOM BILL,
Heh... I was similarly reminded of this disturbing Dali work:

Yeah, I'm coming from general anthropomorphism and not getting it. Humans make everything about humans (their gods, their aliens etc are all "made in their image") and I didn't necessarily expect the kids to see an erotic pose but couldn't figure out why they wouldn't see human shapes in it.

Something like this optical allusion I buy they won't get, but not that optical illusion:

Mr. McTag,
In a worst case scenario,
what is the worst that can happen to the kids, in your opinion
in consequence of seeing this picture ?

@Robert Gentel,
It is FUN to mentally change to negative space
and see the picture change right in front of u.

Yaya, nearly five, said "ballerinas jumping."

Keetah, three, said "a jar" and "a woman."
