Wow, that is some far reaching. I tried to find it before I scrolled down - I don't think I ever would have noticed that.

In other news, you can find something dirty in pretty much anything if you are determined enough.

Disney's got a tradition to uphold, after all.

I almost wouldn't be surprised if they did something like this on purpose just for laughs after the whole brouhaha with Aladdin. And in this case, once it's pointed out, it's hard *not* to see it. That being said, it looks like a pretty obvious case of pareidolia to me.

"Now do me, you are mine" is the closest I can come up with.

Forgot to mention, I saw this on ROLFRAZZI a few days ago, and they cite it to The Daily What. Which is basically an extension of the same site.

I could kiiiiinda make it out before scrolling down, but to be fair, I have a dirty mind.

I'm also amused at how people think that just the LETTERS S-E-X are corrupting the youth. Kids too young to know what it means won't notice it, kids old enough to know what it means (assuming they even notice it, a lot of times it's really a stretch) will just snicker. It's not graphic pornography or anything. It's a word with no context.

I think the comments posted on the link I gave said it best:

"IMO the alleged letters don’t even flow in a row therefore destroying the ability for me to even accidentally read the word. My eyes read words in rows, not right angles, and certainly not right angled invisible words."

"Well, yeah, and you probably actually have some sex occasionally, so you don’t have to look for subliminal messages all about copulation."

I agree with Missie, a word cannot teach someone something that they don't already know. Furthermore what would be the point of corrupting someone through hidden messages that take time and mild obsession to find?

Many years ago, in the dim recesses of internet history, I was on a Sherlock Holmes listserv list. We discussed one story each week. There was one member who, for each story, would pull lines out of context to "prove" that Sherlock Holmes was all about sex. It was a lot of fun.

I probably never would have noticed it myself. But like Johnny Slick said, someone might have done this as a joke.

Just on a side note, her eyes say "sex" much more than her hair.

I'd be more concerned about the fact that they are engaging in bondage activities without making sure to have established a safeword first.
