Puzzle games are always fun. And newspaper publishers are aware of that fact. Thus you will often find many games printed on any newspaper you pick up and this story is about the same.
The Baltimore Sun is one such newspaper that thought to entertain its people by letting them solve an easy puzzle. And before we move any further, why don’t you give it a shot? We know you want to. Don’t you? So get going and try to find the difference in the two pictures below:
And yes, the bird-like thing on the right side of the first picture is just ink spill and not a difference. The difference is within the pictures. Or maybe not?
As a kid, we use to give so much attention to these riddles because of how fun they are. Similarly, many people must have tried very hard to spot the difference between these two ‘identical images’.
Yes, you heard it right. They both are two identical images, a blunder made by the paper. Just imagine the state of people who spent so much time to spot the difference. And if you are one of those, well, I am sorry.
The Baltimore Sun accepted the blunder later and issued an apology for the same.
“The images in the ‘Spot the difference’ feature in the Sunday, April 26, editions were mistakenly the same image and not in fact different. The Baltimore Sun regrets the error,” wrote the daily.
However, the people were already so pissed and sarcastic about it and took on twitter to share their feelings:
With the same spelling mistake in each one.April 28, 2020
