Tripod people

The topic, originally, was the humdrum light bulb, and the conversation went something like this:

“My major objection to the Compact Fluorescent,” I said, “is that if you drop one you have to call in the hazmat people.”

“To be honest,” she replied, “I dropped one once, and cleaned up the area myself. I don’t think there was any stray mercury, and I didn’t suffer any ill effects. Except, of course, for the extra head.”

I did something between giggling and guffawing. “Let me know if you add an extra arm or two.”

“I thought you were more interested in legs.”

She’s got me there, I had to admit.

Shortly thereafter, I remembered this little viral photo:

Not actually a three-legged woman

It had taken me far too long to figure it out.

(If you can’t, go here.)

    It’s not that difficult, although it threw me at first. Also at second.

    though I’ve seen enough anime to know that a three-legged girl would be plausible in some Alternate Universes.

    And at least one teaser clip for American Horror Story.

    Doh! (facepalm) It’s so obvious once you see it. I suppose it just goes to show one should always be aware of the effect of ones chosen color of pantyhose.

    One more reason not to wear pantyhose.

    Among others: June, July, and August, for example.
