Great minds

No, I haven't gone crazy.....this is, apparently, a bona fide test to see how intelligent people are. Despite the fact that it was in an email from Lydia and sandwiched between "Do you want a BIGGER penis?" and "Plees send me money to helping my childrens like teach" in my inbox.

Cna yuo raed tihs? Olny 55 plepoe out of 100 can.

I cdnuolt blveiee taht I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd waht I was rdanieg.

Am definitely not as clever as Goodbyetoallfat, as there is no question I'm going to write this comment in a similar style. But how fascinating! (And personally I would prefer to stick with the belief that only 55 out of 100 can read it. Makes me feel so much better...)

All about me

My photo
Nunhead, London, United Kingdom
I'm a mum of one, wife of one and owner to several dogs, a variety of breeds and sizes. I live in the up and coming area (or so they say) of Nunhead and have mad neighbours, strange friends and certifiable relatives. I shop locally, although I do defect to Sainsburys once a week - shoot me now local shopkeepers.
