Can we also include misperceived images? There is one that is meant to be a door, I believe. Brown rectangle made up of panels with door knob.
I always see it as a piece of chocolate with a very stingy single hazelnut...

There's actually a pretty hilarious thread where we discuss our misinterpretations of the artwork here:

Wait... it's not "walksies"???

Another discovery I just made: It's the NUMISmatrix, not the NUSImatrix. How do you even pronounce that smoothly?

Me too! (Now next time I see a game reference to one, I'll have to scrutinize the spelling, just in case.) :-)

It's nice to know that God's Editors made it possible for openly trans people to attain sainthood.

Speaking, or trying to speak, of Incunabula this is fascinating:

Just realized I've been reading "Lacre" as "Larce" for two years. My world is crashing down around me.

Every time I see "Entering Her Enduring Majesty's Court" I read "Enduring Her Eternal Majesty's Court". A somewhat skewed mental image there...

And Walkskies too. Took me forever to notice out that "k" was there. I think until I tried to impersonate Topsy King and say it out loud.

I thought that myself, and I found it confusing (how could it be both Brass and Silver?) Actually I'm still a bit confused. Brass slivers would be annoyingly sharp, hard to count, and thus hard to use as a medium of exchange. But then, we are talking about devils, who only try to please if they see a soul that can be bought.
