FHM Germany tests whether men would do a blue frogwoman.


(click ad) Headline translation: "98 percent of men don't see a frog here." Tagline: FHM. "Men are like that." So, men—what did you see first? Woman? Frog? Freaky frogwoman? An ex? The meaninglessness of existence? I don't know how a juvenile repurposing of the Rorschach ink blot test (a common ad visual trick) sells FHM, but Deutsche mags do certainly seem obsessed with animal love.

Hmm. Does it mean anything if I saw a blue frog-woman and was still turned on?

I see someone being dismembered with a Soviet-era chainsaw, model number Z4259L.

Of course, I also see that in my cereal every morning.

Catch me if you can, coppers!

It's probably wishful thinking, but I saw Blue Man Group as roadkill.
