Sunday Funnies–The Dress Edition

If you were on social media at all on Thursday night, you probably saw this picture, with the question “What color is this dress?”:

Some people see it as blue and black, while others see it as white and gold. There were countless discussions about it everywhere, and I found the whole thing rather funny! To me, it is blue and black. For about a second I saw it as white and gold, but then it changed back to blue and black. I asked my kids and Zachary saw blue and black, but Simon saw white and gold!

People made different images to show how if your screen is brighter it looks white and gold versus the darker version of blue and black, but to me they all look like different brightness versions of blue and black! It has to do with your eyes.

This is all over the news, if you Google “the dress” you get countless articles about it! So here are some related funnies.

There was also lose llamas in Arizona, so here are some llamas in “dresses.”

I seriously still cannot believe how this dress image took off in less then 24 hours. I went to pick up pizza on Friday night and other customers in the pickup line were actually talking there. Crazy, but still it was news worthy apparently. I saw gold and white by the way, but honestly the best meme, I saw was a dog saying it didn't matter what color it was, that it was still an ugly dress (now that made me smile!).

These are too funny! I saw so many people talking about it but I had no idea there was so much else! It's amazing how fast people can come up with things!

I was wondering if I was on Team White and Gold (at first anyway) because I'm a photographer and I was totally mentally correcting the white balance!

Ronni said...

No matter what I do, I see white and gold.

It's funny because on your first image I do see the blue and black, but everywhere I saw it the other day, it was always white and gold.

Those are cute - I see white & gold - my husband and son said they see blue & black


wow DD already made some cookies for it? lol

Holly Higgins said...

Oh that dress! It's always been white and gold to me, although I can see how it could appear blue. But, I don't see the black at all.

Dara said...
