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.
