Y'all Thought What?

9.08.2013




I do worry about some of y'all. When I shared this picture the other day all of a sudden I had several comments regarding what y'all actually thought this was a painting of. Now, I have shown this piece several times over the last year or so and now y'all are telling me that you thought it was something entirely different from the farm scene that it is. Apparently y'all must have thought I had lost my mind.....

......since y'all thought I would buy a painting of one of these. 

Or how about this?

Even this was mentioned.

No, I don't think I would buy a painting of a wooly mammoth or Snuffleupagus. I do think some of y'all are way past due your annual eye exam or maybe your just in denial.

Y'all crack me up!!!

Oh, and I want name any names Dawn, Becca, Andi, Onnery(no blog found), and Pam.

How many more of you thought it was a wooly mammoth?
Now, tell the truth.

  4. I have to confess that I've thought the same thing on first glance every time. Then I remember. :)

  5. raising my hand.. I though it was a wooly:) but I know how you like animals...
    vision isnt great but at least I'm honest lol

  6. Yep, my first take, too. lol

  7. Too funny - I guess that there aren't many of your readers who've been around an old-fashioned farm!

  8. At a quick glance it does kind of resemble a Mammoth...lol...guess some of our eyes and brains weren't making the right connection...

  9. Haha! I'm reading this on my mobile and thought it was a woolly mammoth! I looked closer and saw a man in front of a stack of hay. No, I'm not wearing my readers, but even a painting of a woolly mammoth would look good in your house!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I admit! I thought that at first, but kept looking and noticed the man and figured it out! :) We're a bunch of nuts out here!!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Kim, gotta admit I was one of them, too, and sad thing is...I blog with my readers on! LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Laughing here.. Hanging head in shame... I though it was a mammoth as well when I saw it the first time. Then I realized what it was :-O Now every time I see it, at first glance it still looks very 'wooly' then I remember .
    Hahaha sorry. *Slowly raising hand*
    ((HUGS))
    Gee

    ReplyDelete
  13. Well it looks like a guy haying... but I do see how with a quick glance, you might get that ;) hehehe

    ReplyDelete
  14. Now Kim, after reading this post I can't stop laughing. Wonderful, wonderful post and you know, I guess after looking at the picture for awhile, yep, from a distance it can resemble a mammoth.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I'm going to confess and say I did have to look real close to see past the wooly elephant to see the farm scene! Truth be told, each post you've done I've had to remember that wasn't a wooly beast.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Hilarious!!!! But I still don't see a mammoth

    ReplyDelete
  17. I know that the picture is a farm scene, but I can TOTALLY see what others saw too. If you look at the picture where the farmer is standing, the pile of hay around him turns into the shape of an elephant! LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  18. lol I knew what your haystack was, but I do have a Pinterest page called "what I thought it was". :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh Em Gee!!! I'm SOO glad I'm not the only one who thought this!!! Each and every time I looked at pics of that print I saw a wooly mammoth! If you see it from a distance that's what it looks like. I love the pic Kim, just so funny when I saw this post I almost died laughin!!!!
    xoxo,

  20. Gotta say, I too took a double take when I first saw this picture!! Too funny!~~Angela

    ReplyDelete
  21. LOL, Snuffleupagus down on the farm. That ladder does sorta look like an elephant's trunk. Funny!

    ReplyDelete
  22. hate to tell ya, but that was my 1st impression...;)

    ReplyDelete
  23. This is hillarious, because that is exactly what I thought it was. Then when I figured out what it really was, I thought for sure I was the only one that thought it was the mammoth.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Honestly, at first glance, I thought it was too! hahaha! glad I'm not the only one! I do need to wear my glasses from now on when I browse. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Kim,
    You are hilarious!
    This reminds me of the "In Touch with Art" classes that I used to teach when the kids were in grade school, when I would asked them..."what do you see in this painting?" The ladder does look like the trunk and the farmer's sleeve is "Snuffies" tusk. This scenario would make a brilliant art lesson!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oooops! I meant the ladder looks like his tail!

  27. I must have no imagination at all. :( But did anyone think that guy was milking the wooly?

    ReplyDelete
  28. so hilarious Kim! we know you wouldn't actually BUY a print of a woolly mammoth, but once I saw that comment I Had to laugh cause if you stand back it kinda sorta does resemble one if you squint! LOL! once i had someone think a print from a book was a tattoo on my arm. ah yeah...

    ReplyDelete
  29. I thought it was a prehistoric something or other the first time I saw it way back when you first showed it. But now I have to remind myself that no, it hay, so yeah, I'm guilty.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Ok I am so glad I am amongst several other wolly mammoth seers. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  31. Ha ha, I KNEW what it was a painting of, but I DID always think "Wooly Mammoth" when I saw it!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Ummmm- NOT Me! And I am blond which is almost an excuse to see a mammoth. Do those girls drink?;>) xo Diana

    ReplyDelete
  33. LOL! Omg, hilarious! No, I only see hay, although maybe now I'll start to see the mammoth. Kind of like an optical illusion :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. HAHAHA at 1st glance it does look like it, but after 2 secs it's obvious what it is....hilarious!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Have to'fess up and admit I thought the same thing, but I just knew you wouldn't randomly throw a wooly into your decor.....so I looked more closely! Hilarious! Once I adjusted my eyes, it was a lovely picture. Jane

    ReplyDelete
  36. Also, on my desktop it clearly reads farm scene, but on my Kindle it is more wooly at first glance! ,Jane

    ReplyDelete
  37. OMG!! I thought the same thing!! But over the monts, as I looked closer I could tell it was a farm scene!! But every time after that...for a split second, the mammoth elephant came to mind!

  38. Guilty! Then I realized.... Ha, ha, glad I'm not the only one! Love the picture!

    ReplyDelete
  39. LOL...hmmmm nope I did not think it was a wooly Mammoth .....

  40. hahaha... it's one of those pictures you have to look closely to see what it is. :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Too funny! I knew what it was but I have seen it a few times. I guess if you look quickly the guys arm could be the tusk, and his body sort of cuts off a piece of that could resemble the trunk hehe.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I have doubted my vision with some font!?? This is so cute! Miss Bailey might consider this for a Halloween costume. LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  43. since you asked i have to honestly say i've always thought it looked like some kind of wooly mammouth

    ReplyDelete
  44. Love the opportunity to laugh! Never thought it was a wooly but had to look a bit closer to see the farmer cutting another pie wedge out of that huge stack! Frankly, I was glad to see some fairly traditional art in an updated lighter setting.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I guess those girls don't live in the country!

    ReplyDelete
  46. How funny! at first glance at this picture i did have a faint vision of an elephant - but it was gone just as quickly as it registered what the pic really was! I hadn't noticed it before though and thought that! :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. I must confess, I thought the same thing!!

    ReplyDelete
  48. LOLOLOL!! Yes, I do need to get my eyes checked, and, admittedly, I'm glad that others need to go with me, too! Maybe we can get a group discount! :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. Oh, this is too funny! At first glance it does look like it good be a wooly mammoth, but I definitely see farm scene.

    ReplyDelete
  50. at first glance I hate to admit I did too.... I had to take a closer look and then I totally got it:) funny.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Yep, I saw an elephant. I didn't even think twice about it. If anyone can make elephants cool in decor, you could! Cutting edge ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  52. Oh my, I thought I was the only one who at first glance thought it was a woolly mammoth. After I looking at I can see the difference. Love the painting either way. Thanks for the laugh.

    ReplyDelete
  53. That is so awesome that you showed the picture from Ice Age! My little boy (now 22!) made a face one day when he was about 12 that looked JUST like Sid the Sloth. He's been Sid ever since! One of my favorite movies. And I'm glad I'm not the only one who saw a mammoth!!

  54. I have to admit, I did indeed think it was a wooly mammoth the first few times I ever saw it. I had to look really close to figure out what it really was. Even now, knowing what it is, at first glance I always think mammoth.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I did too! I thought why? Then looked again and laughed at myself. I never though about mentioning it though!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Yup, I'm in. I think it was sorta far away and I couldn't understand why you'd hang a painting of a hairy elephant. Up close it was easy to see what it really was, but from a distance...not so much. Glad I wasn't the only one!

    ReplyDelete
  57. So, from far away, I may have thought it was a wooly mammoth, but upon further inspection, I see I was wrong....but, just for the record if you had a framed picture of Snuffulupugus on your wall, you would be the coolest kid on the block!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Ummm...yeah. I think it is a wooly mammoth every time I see it. I just didn't want to look like an idiot and say so. Looks like there are many of us. LOL
    Too funny.

  60. Hehe!
    This is so funny.
    To be honest when I first glanced at the picture I saw one too.
    But once my eyes focused in I saw the farm scene.
    Funny the tricks ones eyes can play.

  61. Oh my goodness I am laughing out loud! I never thought this looks like a snuffleupagus or a wolly but I guess if you were glancing fast it might. Although I am not sure what a farmer would be doing to a wooly.

    Thank you for the laugh! Have a great week.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I sure did!! I still did after you were writing this post! hahah!!! So funny!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I have to admit the first time I saw the picture in one of your photos I thought the hay bale was a mammoth body, but I thought to myself "That can't be right.." and examined closer to find it was a hay bale, which made way more sense. Nice picture, though.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Me! First few times I saw it, I thought it was a wooly mammoth. I had to look really hard. I just could figure out what you saw pretty about a mammoth. Glad I wasn't the only one. Karie

  66. Lololol! I was looking at it from my phone. That is so funny!

    ReplyDelete
  67. when I first saw it that's what I thought it was also-love dee x

    ReplyDelete
  68. Yes, me too! I have to really focus to see something other than a wooly:). Its a lovely pic when you look carefully!

    ReplyDelete
  69. OH MY - time to visit the eye doc ladies ! Can't believe anyone thought that you had a beautiful painting of a WOOLY MAMMOTH hanging on your wall !! Ha ha, sorry - I just don't see the wooly in that painting !!

    ReplyDelete
  70. Have to admit I thought that as well and had to increase the size to see what it was.

    ReplyDelete
  71. I confess that was my first impression too -- and I even have a painting of hay bales in my house as well!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Me too! At first I thought it was some sort of farm animal. But when I magnified the picture I saw it wasn't. First sight from a distance does make you stop and look. But I know I need my readers. Very pretty picture.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Every time I've seen that picture, my first glance thinks woolly mammoth, but it always makes me take a second look, and I realize what it actually is. I don't know why it gets me every time. :)

    ReplyDelete
  74. At first glance it does. It took me a minute to realize what it was.
    Too funny. I am so glad I wasn't the only one!!!

    ReplyDelete
  75. LOL! I didn't, but after reading this post and looking again, I can see how someone might have thought that...too funny!

    ReplyDelete
  76. Me too! Until I stretched the pic on my ipad...too funny!

    ReplyDelete
  77. Alright, you got me. When I first saw that picture many moons ago, I did think it was a woolly mammoth...I had to look really closely to see what it really was! It still catches me off guard to this day! Too funny...I thought I was all alone! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  78. omgosh!I cant believe others saw that too! I had to look twice or three times as I knew that wasnt your style. I had a painting of a big hay pile with a man at top in red hat. My kids always said it looked like a giant cupcake! After they said that that is all I could see. Had to sell it.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Yes, I totally thought it was a woolly mammoth until I did a double take! Glad it wasn't just me! :)

    ReplyDelete
  80. I am gonna blame it on the small screen my iPhone has...not gonna were these dang glasses all the time! ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  81. At first glance, I did as well.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Actually at a very quick glance with no glasses, it can look like a prehistoric scene....:)...

    ReplyDelete
  83. Add me to the "list" ! :)

    ReplyDelete
  84. ... must be a right brain, left brain thing!!

    ReplyDelete
  85. ok that's the funniest thing ever - still laughing my head off here - I don't think I would have seen it until you mentioned it but now it looks vaguely familiar to something from the Flintstones when you look at it a certain way - how hilarious..........
    I do love that painting though!
    Hugs,

  86. Have to admit that I thought it was an elephant the first time I saw it. ---Mrs. Rick

    ReplyDelete
  87. I have to admit, I thought it was a wooly mammoth too! I do have floaters in one of my eyes which may have accounted for my interpretation, but now I have tears from ROFL! This is too funny!

    ReplyDelete
  88. yup, me too!! Guess I hadn't really been looking very closely, but last time you posted the painting I said to myself "Oh, so THAT'S what it is!!" I always wondered why you had a painting of a wooly mammoth and called it a farm scene!! Good grief!

  89. Ohmygosh...too funny! I did NOT think it was a woolly mammoth, BUT when I saw your post title & scrolled down to see the picture (before reading any text) I thought.... what would people think this IS? A woolly mammoth or something?! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  90. Sorry, when I first saw it I also thought it was a woolly mammoth! Then I took a second glance and realized what it was.

    ReplyDelete
  91. That's too funny! I was wondering what the heck it was when I first saw it so I clicked on the photo to blow it up and realized it wasn't a wooly mamouth!

    ReplyDelete
  92. Okay - honestly, when I first looked I wondered why you had a picture of a woolly mammoth in your entryway - then I did a double take and realized what it was. (HaHa, and yes, I do need to have my eyes checked - it has been well over a year! LOL)

    ReplyDelete
  93. Thisis hysterical cause the VERY first time you showed us this, at first I thought it was a whooly too, til you said "farm scene" and I looked closer:):):) Glad I am not alone:):)

    ReplyDelete
  94. Guilty! I definitely thought it was a wooly! I thought that's what kind of farms they had down by y'all! Thanks for giving me a good laugh, Kim!

    ReplyDelete
  95. Oh my gosh...I saw it for what it actually was, a stack of hay...I live in California...what were your friends smoking or drinking that night? However, you took their comments in stride and gave us all a good laugh.Btw, I just love that painting.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Thought it was an elephant when I first glanced at it, did a double take! Tee-hee!

    ReplyDelete
  97. Oh yes, and I forgot to mention...the man's white-sleeved arm looks like the tusk of the elephant!

    ReplyDelete
  98. Yep, at first glance... Woolley Mammoth! I did double take and quickly see my error, but not gonna lie, I saw the mammoth! :)

  99. Oh my.... I'm glad I'm not the only crazy one! Everytime I see that picture I've always thought it was a wooly mammoth! I always have to study it a minute to see what it actually is.

    Glad I'm not the only one. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  100. See, Dawn, Becca, Andi, Onnery and I are not the only ones who saw a wooly mammoth upon first glance; we're just the only brave ones to have admitted it.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Me too with the wooly mammoth! Even though I have known since the first time I saw it, and gave it a closer look, that is is in fact, actually a haystack and a man. My brain still reads it as a mammoth for a split second. I would have never admitted it, but since everyone else is...I am too!

    You have excellent taste, my friend, and it is a very beautiful picture. It's just one of those optical illusion things!
