Natural concept. You think "color" and start analysing the picture. Natulaly you'll state the color you see, not the one you read, 'cause you're in "color" mode, not "word" mode.

Roughly speaking.

unless I'm missing something, the word and the color it is written in are supposed to be different. ie, "RED" written in blue, etc. But in the above example, the word and the colors match.

They were done by the same guy who does smbc-comics.com, in jest. Good times.

All of the "illusions" on that page are jokes.

None are actually illusions. The "circles" that are supposed to look like a spiral are actually a spiral. The words are the same as the colours of the words.

That's the joke.

Well, I didn't go to the link. But I'm so used to those stupid tricks with color names that I got completely caught off-guard.

If I was a director, I would do a movie like that. Have the first scene end in a totally rational and logical way, and then have it be pretty much an entirely different movie at that point. All trailers would show only the first scene, so you're expecting the horror flick, or whatever. I'd thought of this years ago, nice to see I'm not alone in wanting to see this done.

You and me both; I've seen so many of these I walked face first into my own preconceived expectations.

I don't know how to rate this as a joke. On the one hand, I was certainly "tricked," because I expected a certain set of optical illusions or mind benders, and was given a set of (intentionally) straight forward images, and assumed the creator botched something.

Is that a joke?

It's like:

A: Here's a nutella sandwitch!
B: This isn't nutella! You've spread shit on bread!
A: Ha ha! Got you!

Trolling is a art, and I guess there's high art and low art, even here.

Back in high school one of my teacher's bathroom pass was a car wheel spoke, but after the security people sent him amusing frame by frame photos of a kid rolling it down the hall we weren't allowed to use it anymore. iirc because they didn't want the spoke damaging the floor or something

bay bridge a couple days ago, everyone is going batshit over this pic
