I don’t believe any internet phenomena will ever reach the peaks of The Dress, but people out there keep trying it. (Seriously, though. That dress is going to go down in history right next to the old woman/young woman optical illusion.)
Today’s starter memes have that same bizarre duality, but fortunately these questions actually have answers, because fuck you, The Dress.
First off: are these legs shiny or painted?
At first I assumed painted meant painted in some glossy substance, to which I was like ‘duh,’ and then I saw it and now I feel dumb. As this nerd explains:
@kingkayden Without a doubt, white paint. There are no light reflections or distortions on the legs as there would be if oiled.

Now we have the next pic: is this Bill Murray or the Superior Tom Hanks?
Unfortunately for the baby, it is not national treasure T.Hanks. Posted on the Facebook page Reasons My Son Is Crying, the parents confirmed it is Bill Murray above. That caption didn’t stop it from blowing the Internet’s minds.
How did you fair with reality-bending pictures? If these weren’t hard enough mysteries for you, calm down Nancy Drew. I’m sure a ridiculous new meme will pop up in an hour.
