Stop, internet—'The Legs' are not the new 'The Dress'

Oil or paint on legs

This isn't a hard one, guys.

Are we so desperate for a distraction that we are constantly trying to make any minorly confusing image the new “The Dress”? Or do our eyes deceive us that much? 

This time, one corner of the internet tried to figure out whether this person’s legs were covered in oil or white paint—when there was paint right there in the photo. Try harder, guys.

Sure, some people argued that it could be oil, but look at it for longer than a couple of seconds and it’s clear that no lighting could make oil reflect that way.

For anyone who doubts it may be paint, the original photo, taken by Instagram user @leonardhospams, says it is indeed white paint. And also that they’d like you to stop asking about their legs.

i like the feeling of paint on my skin

Recently, the internet tried to pull this stunt with a purse. But maybe it’s just time to accept that there will never be another Dress.

H/T Mashable

We trolled dudes on Tinder as #TheDress and here's what happened
I think we can all agree that #TheDress has brought out the best in all of us. It's cranked up the social media smarm-o-meter to 11. It's made us ignore real things that were happening in the world. It's even ruined relationships and potential sexual encounters. Last Thursday, the Dress almost became the thing that broke the internet for good.
