I looked up on Wikipedia his famous inkblots, and was curious as to what each of us saw.

Here's the inkblots, then I'll list (seriously) what I saw in each one....

@chai2,
I'm also serious. My takes on what I see have probably changed over decades.

1) dogs making cats stand straight
2) dogs vying for a piece of fat bacon
3) dancers doing some modern moves around a skull at some theater
4) a fluffy eagle seen from below
5) a bat with some long out of style shoulder pads
6) a bird trying to get away from a sticky rug
7) a craft necklace that needs a clasp
8) two rats trying to reach nirvana
9) two elk stags fighting it out in the coastal fern forest in Orick, CA. The one on my right wins.
10) weird fish approaching islands that lay above some giant human skeleton

He kinda looks like Brad Pitt.

He died when he was only 39, of peritonitis from a burst appendix

Well, in Sturgis and mine case, I'd say that he's gay and I've got lesbian tendencies, but was too lazy to do anything about it.

@chai2,
My pyschiatrist said please don't share because it will only upset the others.

1. Has to be a moth right, except if you incline your head left 45% it's obviously a flying pig and it's reflection as it banks hard to port.

3. That scene from Chicago where Zeta-Jones and Zellwegger fight over the chair as a metaphor for love and all that jazzm.

The other blots are so vile, unspeakably horrid and illegal in most states that I shant ever look at them again very much if at all hardly.

That seems to sum it up nicely. Kind of worried about some of the other answers I had though...I might be labeled off-kilter (as though it hasn't already happened Laughing )

A psychologist tested a client with the Rorschach test.
In every picture the client saw something sexual, sometimes rather innocent sometimes closer to pornography-
So the psychologist asked the client if all he could think about was sex.
Oh no said the client I do not think about sex - you are the one showing me all the dirty pictures....
