What Do You See?

Reader Lexi did a little experiment recently — it involved mixing some Bacardi 151 (alcohol) with ice cream and setting the mixture on fire.

She was able to take a picture of the result:


In the spirit of pareidolia, she sees an angel.

I see The Lion King — Rafiki holding Simba up for everyone to admire.

I’m sure Jesus is hidden somewhere in there, too.

What do you think?

  • Tao Jones

    That is very clearly Sailor Mercury from Sailor Moon.

  • I Doubt It

    It’s a ballerina (with no legs) turning her back on a leering admirer.

    Obviously! Sheesh…

  • I see a candle with flame on top of an old-fashioned candlestick holder with handle…

    …but then again, I’m used to searching for patterns in noise.

  • mikespeir

    I thought a ballerina at first, artistically blurred. Then I decided it was some kind of sea critter, maybe a jellyfish. Now I have no idea.

  • Stephen M.

    Looks like one of those old-fashioned tin candle holders.

  • Richard Wade

    Well, with enough Bacardi, you can see whatever you want to see, and with even more Bacardi, you’ll see stuff you don’t want to see.

    I see two tropical flowers.

  • I see two people, one sitting and one standing. Now I’m dying for some ice cream.

  • nick

    I see a jellyfish with a misshapen penis..

    boy, what does that say about me!

  • I saw candles too. Very pretty photo, the colors are wonderful.

  • You are all misguided fools. That is clearly Bart Simpson standing at the feet of a space alien. Both dressed in white robes.

  • Becky

    Sailor Mercury! Bahaha! Now that’s all I see, and this makes me sad. 🙁

  • Wendy

    I see the Flying Spaghetti Monster!

  • Dylan Armitage

    I see a person standing, with a vampire baby stalking them, getting ready to pounce.

  • Gabriel G.

    I see a skeletal-like creature rising from the flames while a being watches from the shadows as his features are revealed through the fire which the creature wishes to escape.

    Or, on the other hand, I see an ice cream/alcohol mixture on fire.

  • Harknights

    I see an “alien” holding a scottie walking away from the head of the candle stick from beauty and the beast movie all on top of a sea shell.

    How does everyone not see that?

  • N

    mmmm…ice cream…

  • Dan

    I see an exothermic reaction between volatile carbon compounds and oxygen.

    And now you know why I’m still single 😉

  • Eliza

    I do not see chocolate. A fatal flaw in any ice cream concoction, no matter how much alcohol it (or the dessert-consumer) contains.

  • I see Aladdin sitting on a flying carpet with a Genie materializing behind him.

  • I see somebody wasting perfectly good rum! If you are going to burn alcohol please don’t use rum. I beg of you, please, don’t waste rum that way.

    Use vodka.

  • Lexi

    Lolz. I love all your answers!!!

  • Aerik

    It looks more like a Star Trek enterprise origami model was set on fire to me.

  • Alice in Wonderland with her skirt kinda blowing up Marilyn Monroe-like.

  • johnb300m

    A wise pirate once said, “but….why’s the rum gone!?”

  • Yes, “why is the rum always gone?!”

  • I can see Mary holding baby Jesus on the left, and a turbaned wise man bowing on the right. There is a heavenly glow all around them.

    And, in the background, the face of that creepy girl from The Ring.

  • Peter

    Looks like fire to me.

  • It’s definitely a blury overexposure of a whirling dervish.

  • It’s definitely a blury overexposure of a whirling dervish.

    That’s what I saw too.

  • Massachusetts is on fire!

  • It’s giving me the finger 🙁

  • I see Elvis fighting his way out of burning ice cream!

  • Awesomesauce

    I thought it was candles.

  • Rest

    I see Richard Dawkins in a dress being tormented in the fiery pits of hell by a demon that looks like Ray Comfort.

    No, actually, the first thing I saw was a ballerina, or someone dancing. The figure to the right is her partner. Looking at it again, I see someone proposing down on his knees to a lady in a dress.

  • Kat

    I see some Bacardi and ice cream on fire. *shrug*

  • I see a ballet dancer.

  • Aaron

    I see a relief map of the province of Ontario. With a big tumour.

  • AnonyMouse

    I see a couple of the pirouetting flowers from the Nutcracker Suite in Fantasia. Or a woman, kneeling to pray in her wedding dress.
