Find The Mistake In This Puzzle

Sometimes the most frustrating puzzle can be the simplest. If you can’t find all the tigers in a painting or get the hidden picture in a Magic Eye image to show up, it’s not really worth sweating over.

After all, the actual steps to seeing a Magic Eye picture the “right” way are kind of involved and you can eat up a surprising amount of time when you’ve got a whole series of them in front of you.

Now, some of you likely figured this out with seconds to spare.

You would probably make a good editor if you did.

But for the rest of us, it’s not a big deal.

Sometimes these things just don’t jump out at us like they should.

Yes, it was the dreaded second “the” all along.

If it weren’t for spellcheckers, my essays would have been full of these.
