Silly Spooders

Awhile ago, a long while ago, I submitted to Bored Panda what I thought was SURE to be the next viral cartoon series “Silly Spiders.”

With a few hundred views, no positive comments, no shares and only 20 upvotes (sympathetic friends and family, I’m guessing), I quickly realized the inevitable (which didn’t include going viral).

I forgot all about these silly things until I happened to stumble over them recently.

After showing them to the ladies on my design team, most of whom weren’t aware of their existence, the team leader noticed something rather interesting.

See the red circles?


See what’s inside the big one?


Of course, I was completely oblivious since I was focused on the spiders and trying to figure out how to make them better artistically.

Kathy noticed it IMMEDIATELY. (Of course, she did, being the mother of a normal six-year-old boy.)

I saw: someone sitting on the toilet with their bright red undies down around their ankles.

She saw: “Stop Wiping Your Butt.”

So, the lesson for today is: Even when presented with stuff in black and white and in print online, each person still perceives it DIFFERENTLY.

And the other life lesson? Always reread what you just read, just in case you missed something REALLY obvious.
