    If you click the 1st spoiler you will see an image and when you see it read it out aloud in a clear voice.

    Sure you have read it correctly? Go back and read it a second time out clear and loud.

    Now click on this spoiler...

    Most people will read it as saying, '' A bird in the bush.''
    However if you go back and read the text inside the triangle it actually says, '' A bird in the the bush'' (i.e. with 2 'thes' and not 1)

    So where you tricked or did you get it right? Be honest please! And if youve seen it before what you think of it? Congratualtions if you werent tricked and you hadnt seen it before. How weird is this if you were?!?

    I fell for it lol. This happened to me when I was about 8...I was on a school trip to Belfast and wanted to get my mum this engraved pencil holder and so I asked them to engrave it with, "You're the best mum in the world" (lol) but when I bought it and got home it actually said "You're the best mum in the the world."
