This corgi illusion is fit for a queen.
As the world prepares for Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral, an illustrator honors Her Majesty with an optical illusion. This royal eye exam ‘toasts’ to the late sovereign’s famous love for corgis by challenging viewers to distinguish the bread from Her Highness’s favorite tea snack.
[Warning: Spoilers below.]
The goal of the optical dog-catching adventure – created by Hungarian illusionist Gergely Dudás, also known as Dudolf – is to discover the three camouflaged slices of toast between an army of corgis led by the late monarch.
Distinguishing between buns and globular pets may seem like a walk in the bark. However, in this awwww-inspiring illusion, the carbs and the canines — one of whom wears a Union Jack hat — are almost indistinguishable from one another.
Note: the image of the queen, while certainly appropriate, is just a distraction.
Still can’t see her? Don’t worry, the Duldolf has provided a handy clue to help viewers tell the loaves of bread from the lap dogs.
If that’s not challenging enough, check out the Hungarian’s fruit-based illusion, where the goal is to tell apples and tomatoes apart. Like this corgi puzzle, it’s a lot harder than it sounds.
The partnership between Queen Elizabeth II and her beloved dogs began long before she met and married Prince Philip or even became Queen.
And although dogs have been a part of the royal family since at least the days of Queen Victoria, the Queen’s association with corgis was something entirely unique.
In fact, the Queen loved her pooches so much that in the 1970s she created her own hybrid breed called “Dorgi” – a cross between a Dachshund and a Corgi – with her sister Princess Margaret.
She also had a craving for toast, according to her former private chef Darren McGrady, who spilled the tea for an afternoon siesta over the monarch’s favorite dishes. Apparently she ate the same thing every day since childhood, jam sandwiches.
“The Queen was served jam pennies in the nursery as a little girl. She’s always had them for afternoon tea ever since,” McGrady said.
