Remember those dreaded visits to the doctor’s office when you were a kid? The only pleasant aspect of that terribly sterile and unwelcoming waiting room was the few cheerful moment spent perusing the latest issue of Highlights for Children.
Remember the lessons we learned from the antics of Goofus and Gallant? Remember the endearing, if somewhat creepy, qualities displayed by The Timbertoes? My favorite part of Highlights was always the Hidden Pictures page. I loved scouring those simply-drawn compositions looking for a toothbrush concealed in the length of a fishing pole or a clown hat camouflaged among a cluster of pine trees. Sometimes, the objects were so well shrouded that I had to tear my mother away from a dessert recipe in the latest Good Housekeeping to assist me in my quest for that elusive picture of a fork.
So, in tribute to my wonderful memories of time spent seeking out those hidden objects, I offer my own take on the hidden objects picture.
Here is a picture of notorious Philadelphia torturer, rapist and serial killer Gary Heidnik. There are fifteen bodies hidden in this picture. Can you find them? (Hint: Check the backyard.)
Fun! have you tried selling this to Highlights yet?
Highlights stopped accepting mail from me long ago.
