  1. #13 is not a photoshop mistake. It is physically possible (and highly reccomended) to hold a weapon and not put your finger on the trigger…until you are ready to kill.

    1. The gun is going off in #13. As far as I know, it’s not possible to fire a gun without pulling the trigger… I can’t see what’s wrong with #3 – anyone want to help?

  2. How on earth did some of those get the editors approval? There are a few which are subtle and no doubt easy to miss at a glance… but seriously, someone should have seen extra fingers or a whole ‘severed hand’!

  3. Did anyone else notice in #5 that the shadow of the guy is different? There is no cheque in the shadow… lol

  4. “? learning from your mistakes and other people mistakes.” Indeed. Should be a capital L on ‘learning’ as it starts a new sentence. Also you can’t learn from other people mistakes. Surely other people’s mistakes? Slight case of hypocritical irony there…

  5. Wow that was unusual. I just wrote an incredibly long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t appear. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Anyway, just wanted to say wonderful blog!

  6. These are great. Several years ago I took a phone picture of a Victoria Secret cover (ahem, I am a mailman), that just looked funny. I don’t pay much attention to them, really I don’t. But this one made me keep trying to figure… FINALLY I saw it…the poor gal had been photoshopped so much, her belly button was clear up her right side, several inches to the right and higher than it should have been! I hope I can find that picture! If you save your old ones :) you might have it yet!

  7. Yes, to Batman, in 23 there IS a tee shirt under the sweater. I used to provide massage for a local CURVES, and there was a full sized poster of this woman in the same pose. It was very clear that it was a shirt. This is not a mistake.
