Looks like someone is pushing against a large piece of sheet metal, and it's bending, so the light rays come off bent and it looks like a mirror in a fun house...

hope that helps...

Yes..yes..ewe are both right !....That's me in the photo by the way..From a distance, you appear upside down (hence the way the arm looks)...but having my body really close reveals myself the right way up. The mirror is vertical and very concave and is in my kids school playground !!

Well done...ewe both win a prize and so please take your choice from one of the following exciting choices:



A round the world first class cruise (1)
A subscription to Lethargy Monthy (2)
A plastic bag filled with my bottom burps (3)
An all ewe can buy for 500 in your local shopping centre (4)






terms and conditions

(1) To be paid for by yourself , I come along (at your cost) to ensure compliance that ewe enjoy yourself !
(2) Currently they are too tired to honour the deliveries but ewe will be added to the backlog. Current waiting time three years.
(3) Ewe pay for a weekend of curry filled revelry and I then supply ewe with your special gift.
(4) Enjoy yourself as ewe go mad shopping for all ewe can get for 500 within 30 minutes. Then go pay for it.
