Quote of Note | Dan Guterman

“A drawing of a rabbit with the long ears and the cute whiskers and everything else. But when you look at the drawing again the rabbit looks like a hare.

Two lines, where the first line looks longer than the second line. But when you take a ruler to measure them they’re actually the same length. Pretty standard illusion, right? Wrong. Because the ruler you used to measure the lines, it’s now a Snickers bar.

Two hands drawing each other. And the illusion is that at first it seems like a career in the arts is feasible, but they you stare at it for a bit longer and realize that, no, it’s really not.”

-Three of Dan Guterman‘s “New Optical Illusions,” from the Shouts & Murmurs column of the March 5 issue of The New Yorker. Guterman is a staff writer for The Colbert Report.
