Fan mail from some flounder?

My father is a funny guy. I guess he'd have to be, since he's married to the pole-dancing grandma.

Our relationship has had its very SERIOUS ups and downs, but one place where he and I stoop to the same level is on the internet.

Some of the funniest nastiest email jokes I have gotten have come from my dad, who thinks nothing of forwarding things to his daughter that would make a sailor blush.

In return, I save the best of the worst for him. Only once can I remember him firing back that he didn't want to hear THAT from his little girl.

Recently, I got one of those infamous forwards that make the rounds on the 'net. Mostly, I open them and promptly hit the delete button, but this one? I actually found interesting.

It was titled "The Bottle ... An Illusion" and issued the following instructions:

Take a look at this picture: What do you see????
Check the explanation that follows!


You saw a couple in an intimate pose, right?

Interestingly, research has shown that young children cannot identify the intimate couple because they do not have prior memory associated with such a scenario.

What they will see, however, is the nine dolphins in the picture! So, I guess we've already proven you're not a young innocent child.

Now, if it's hard for you to find the dolphins within 6 seconds, your mind is SO corrupted that YOU probably need help!

OK, here's help: Look at the space between her right arm and her head, the tail is on her neck, follow it up. Look at her left hip, follow the shaded part down, it's another one, and on his shoulder...

OH, SURE, NOW you see them!!!!!
I love this kind of stuff. Like those drawings where you either see the old woman or the young girl:


So I forwarded it to my dad. I also sent it to my mom -- who is notorious for being technologically impaired.

Mom's response was immediate: laughing heartily at my dad, who apparently had a little difficulty finding the dolphins. *Snicker chortle guffaw*

Papa-san, however, took a couple days before he emailed me an answer:
"Sure.....NOW I see the dolphins. Still.....I know what I like.......and it ain't fish."
*Shudder*

I really don't think I want to know ...

Oooh, I saw the sexy couple, but without reading the hints I found all 9 dolphins in less than 60 seconds. That means I'm a kid, right? I don't have to be all mom-erly anymore?

Kelley @ magnetoboldtoo said...

I showed that to my DAUGHTER.

And lived to regret it.

*sob*

BTW I love your dad.

Jenni said...

6 seconds or 60? It took me longer than 6, but less than 60. Usually I'm pretty quick at finding the alternate image, but this time it was a little more difficult. I saw the couple in the small image on my Blogger dashboard and clicked over right away to see if my eyes were deceiving me.

The Laundress said...

I love your parents.

I saw no dolphins until you pointed them out. Sick.

Janet said...

I found all the dolphins without the hints, but yes, I saw the couple first.

But after Kelley's experience i think I'll be keeping it to myself.

Your dad kills me.

Janet said...

Oh yeah, I always see the young girl first. I wonder how old I'll be when I start seeing the old lady first?

LceeL said...

Go POPS!!! My kinda guy. Damn. We gotta be related.

Roger said...

I actually saw a couple in an embrace - her back to us reaching up and kissing her man... then I saw the other one. The dolphins I found without the hints in about 20 seconds, so I'm so-so corrupt, i guess. :)

I've seen the old lady before, but can't this time. Weird. I must go back and take a third and fourth look, at the old/young lady, not that corruptable image. :)

Eternal Sunshine said...

I could only find 7 dolphins, but I wasnt' trying real hard.

And I'm afraid to show it to my kids. In theory I beleive that kids can't see it, but too often things backfire on mt...

Karen said...

Well, thanks. I needed to hear that I was a perv today.

Lynette said...

It took me FOREVER to find the dolphins...I guess that makes me a perv. Upside: I know the hubs is grateful. Ha!

Burgh Baby said...

ACK! I saw the dolphins first. What does that mean? ACK!

Kaytabug said...

Um, I have been staring at this picture for longer than I care to admit and I can't find ONE f*cking dolphin let alone 7 or 9 of them!!!! I have a damn tattoo of a dolphin, they are my favorite mammal!

(I finally saw 3 but it took looking at the picture on my computer screen instead of my iPhone screen.)

I am ÜBER corrupt!

Audrey at Barking Mad said...

Your dad and mine should talk. I'm always afraid to open the emails he sends. *lol*

And I still can't find the dolphins!

The Duchess of Wessex said...

I saw the couple first, but could make out the dolphins with the help of the explanation, which I hope means I'm not TOO FAR gone!

I saw a young woman in the second drawing. Whew!

HalfAsstic.com said...

Wow! You do like to live on the edge, don't you?! Giving your dad the ammo to make you feel that uncomfortable and make you giggle at the same time, just proves it!

Momo Fali said...

I am not showing my kids, because I have a feeling they're more corrupt than I think.

Momisodes said...

OMG. I won't even tell you how long it took me to find those dolphins!

But then it was clear as day :)

These are so interesting. I can see why you like them.

p.s I only see the young girl!

Sarah said...

LMAO!! Yeah my father would never want to get that from me. That's okay, though...I found the dolphins...after a few seconds...yup...yeah...really...

anticsofacrazymom said...

Saw the young woman, however I still can't find all those damn dolphins.

Huckdoll said...

Bwahah. I have to show this to the girls and see if they can spot the dolphins.

Debbie said...

I would never have seen those dolphins. I am oddly proud of that.

ChrisB said...

Lets just say it wasn't the dolphins I saw first hehehe!

The Royal Family said...

HA HA HA yeah i couldn't find dolphins until someone had to point them out LOL

From Janes Oven said...
