Toledo Talk

This is a little odd, but . . .

In today's Blade, in the obituary for a woman named June Pasch, in the paragraph naming her survivors, the typesetting of the words creates a pattern of blank spaces over ten lines of text that looks very much like the Playboy bunny symbol.

Check it out.

I don't see it, but it does end with a mexican restaurant.

I got precisely one result on a google search of "June Pasch" and "playmate".

I don't see it either. Looks like your typical Obituary to me.

Not the on-line version, but the dead tree.

I see it, JM, it's just the way they decided to set up the lines so they weren't splitting last names. A couple of the other obits have big gaps, too.

The least they could have done was line up the spaces to look like the face of Jesus or Mary, then, sell their issues on Ebay. They might have actually made some money for once.

Spooky. It's like seeing the bunny in Donnie Darko. It's talking to me... it's... it's telling me to watch the skies! o_O

That made me smile! I wonder if you could request that? I would like my obit to have a big old Peace sign on it!
