First reader to find the secret message wins.
[Warning. Read comments first. And notice the date.]
No cheating and looking at the filename now
But is the message the filename or its implication?
Yes, the filename was indeed the secret message. Good job.
Well, the filename AND it’s implication.
All of the sudden, I am reminded of http://www.ouverture-facile.com for some reason
I’m going to go out on a limb and say, “APRIL FOOLS”.
I was awake for 5 seconds, and my Mom already yelled from across the room, “DON”T USE THAT CREAMER! IT’S SPOILED!” so I ended up just spilling it everywhere but the coffee cup. She got me, but gal-danget, she’s the only one today.
YaY!!! I think I got it!
Which is the joke, the message or the prize? :”D
Prize? What prize?
Your dignity, Sir, is the prize.
And now it’s time for April Fools’ Day moment of truth:
So when Scott McCloud came to UVA, I arrived on the early side and sat near the front of the auditorium. Mr. McCloud said something about the T-shirt I was wearing. I hesitated, awkwardly, and made what I hope was a pleasant but non-committal (and probably still awkward) reply. I was UTTERLY BAFFLED by his words.
Some time later, I realized he must have mistaken what I was wearing for some other cartoon character.
Thus ends today’s installment George Austin’s Stories of Acting the Fool.
I see Totoro now, but I might have thought Cheshire Cat. Hmm…
(unless you made the whole thing up just now — for REVENGE!)
I think my revenge was helping Mr Bound introduce you to Dragonforce. I’m sure other things in life seem drab after knowing the “extreme power metal” sub-genre and its pioneers, mwa ha ha!
Gaaa I can never see anything in these… what does it says for my brain? Am i stupid?
See comments at top, JF.
It is, in fact,.April Fool’s Day. And I’m not the only joker out there, I promise.
this is not a joke: I woder what do you think of the job of Hans Rosling and of gapminder.org. I guess that it could be out among those uses of graphics that can help us visualizing informations and see the world with our own eyes. People never understand why I think that this has something to do with comics, but I hope that at least someone of you, people of the scottmccloud.com, can understand it! If you can’t, smth must be fixed in my head…
it could be *** among those uses… (no OUT* in the middle, pardon)
It very clearly says “I’m a happy, happy Sprout-Butt.”
Anyone could see that!
Is it an ear ? : ( I’m so paranoid! Whatever I do i could be wrong! I could guess and there could be no message or I could not guess thinking that it’s a joke and never find the message that is in fact there! Waaaaaaaaaaaah!!!
you just gotta RELAX YOUR EYES, dood
lookatyourcalendar dot gif? lol
this is why i hate games and refuse to play! (unless it’s a first person shooter or pvp fighter, that is)
Oh, I see what you did there – despite having spent the last few minutes crossing my eyes around trying to perceive the fake stereogram >_< until I realized thus:
“Look not at the gibbersh stereogram I bring you today, but at the April Fool’s nod the actual picture’s filename leads towards.” That’s quite the insight.
You sir, just caught me for a fool:
Hope you’re proud of yourself.
