I don’t know why but that cloud looks startlingly like Scarlett Johanssen, lying on her side, one high-heeled foot up in the air and nothing else on.

It doesn’t look even remotely that way to you? Well, it does ta me. And that’s what matters.

Don’t take this lightly or dismiss it as just a horny old man’s fantasies. Why, Michelangelo got his inspiration for the ‘Creation of Adam’ fresco on the Sistine Chapel ceiling from a cloud pattern, didn’t he?

There’s a word for this psychological phenomenon that Mike and I, both had – Pareidolia – the tendency to interpret shapes (even sounds), when the mind perceives a familiar pattern where none actually exists.

When I was 10, a bed post with a heavily ornamented blob on top, used to look like an evil brooding head sneering menacingly down at me. After my elder bro let me read the Classics Illustrated version of The Hunchback of Notre Dame, cushions that were stowed on top of a whatnot right next to the bed, came alive as multiple Hunchbacks of Notre Dame at night.

Then there’s that mesa on Mars that has an eerie resemblance to a human face mask. Of course there are literally hundreds of rocks all over the world, from small boulders to mountains, that resemble human heads.

Experts in parapsychology and associative psychology opine that the tendency toward pareidolic behavior declines with age. They are all idiots. Hey, a cloud with tits is a cloud with tits. Just because the tits I saw gradually elongated, deformed and dissipated within minutes doesn’t make me a depraved man, okay?
