Subliminal


Aaaaaand it's time for another suman latik post.

By now, I'm sure that everyone's noticed that I use the same graphic to introduce the suman latik posts. In case you're wondering, the image is actually the property of the Sassy Lawyer, who has graciously allowed its use for the suman latik webring. There's a second image that used to make the rounds of the webring, but I feel that this particular photograph better communicates the nature of the food.

It's kind of funny how I've used this image at least thirty times over the last seven months without, er... ah, without... er...

...Umm, what's that?

...

Oh, you know -- that.

...

You don't see it? It's right there!

Here, I'll show you again:


Geez, you don't see it?

Maybe it's best if I blow up the picture a little bit. Here's an enlargement of the lower left area:


So... do you see it now?

...

I don't know, really. What do you think?

...

It's funny, now that I think about it. I've been using this for the last number of months, and it's never occurred to me that somebody would try to sneak a hidden image into the photograph.

Well, usually in these cases you'd expect something offensive, obscene, or just pain weird. I don't think we can really tell what this is yet, though.

Heck, let's enlarge it some more:


What is that, anyway? It looks kind of red-and-blue.

In hindsight, it could just be a technical glitch. It's not as though the image is supposed to have any blue in it. Maybe something went wrong with the digital camera, or maybe it didn't download correctly when I received it.

Still, I think I can enlarge it a little more:


The image is still extremely blurry, isn't it? As good as one's eyesight may be, I don't think anyone can really confirm what it is at this point. At least we know that it's definitely composed of red and blue patches.

I suppose we can try to sharpen the central area to the point where we can get a more solid outline. That might allow us to identify whatever it is, somehow...


...

...

So that's where he is. No wonder I couldn't find the little bugger.

...

All this time. All this time, and he was right underneath my nose. Imagine that.

Well, that's one thing down. Now where's that darn Wizard Whitebeard...




Mysteeeerious. (Much waggling of fingers.)

I'm not kidding, folks -- do you have any idea how hard it is to find an image of Waldo on the internet? The image of Waldo here is used purely for purposes of parody... although if they want to sue me, they gotta find me first. :)

tama sila: lahat ng bad ay tumatagal. tulad ng blog na 'to. aba akalain mo ba namang manalo sa blog awards? yan ang tinatawag na stupid decision. this is probably one of the stupidest blogs i've seen so far. it just sucks. haller, kung sino ka man: fuck you. tarantado ka. punyeta ka. why don't you just lick my pussy para naman magkaroon ng silbi? o, not too quick. ayan.

Sean said...

Anna: Hello, Anna. How's it going? :)

Jac: One of the things I could never figure out, though, was why "Waldo" became "Wally". I mean, the villain's named "Odlaw", and he's supposed to be the main character's mirror image!

Sassy Lawyer: No, nothing like that. If there was one on the plate, then I'd have told you as soon as I saw it.

Anonymous: I find that a good conclusion - yes, this blog sucks. After all, what else do you call a blog that covers the insane ramblings of a writer, has a post on suman latik every Wednesday, and physically threatens plagiarists every month? What you said is true, plain and simple: This blog sucks.

I'm surprised that you know about my moves to nominate this stupid, stupid blog for the Philippine Blog Awards, though. (Whatever happened to that event, anyway?) That post was, like, five or six months ago...

g :3 said...

WOO Sean! You WON the blog awards???!!!
Whoot! Whoot! All right you're the MAN!
Hehe, haven't been updating myself with you, so now I believe I shall.
You're so COOL!!!

Jonas Diego said...

Oy! Congratulations! Blogger of the Year. Yeah! :D

G :3 said...

Hey thanks for that tip, Anonymous!!!

http://www.philippineblogawards.com/winners05.php

Whoot! Whoot!
Go on readers! click the link! It's TRUE!!!

Sean said...

G:3 : As I said this morning when I first accessed the link: "WHAT THE HELL?!"

Jonas: And as you probably know already, I spent the next hour swearing like a little girl with Tourette's Syndrome.

I don't know if it's authentic or not, though; I haven't received an e-mail from them yet. Besides, they probably wouldn't give anything -- much less an award -- to a shifty little weasel like me. :)

Congratulations.

Miss ko na ang suman. Kakahomesick.

Ma;igayang pasko. Mabuhay ka.

Sean said...

myepinoy: Thanks. :)

Yeah, there's something about suman, really. It was one of the things I missed while on vacation last October...
