Optical illusions and puzzles have become an internet favorite. Whether it be deciding if a dress is actually blue or gold or if someone appears to be missing an important appendage, people love to spend hours uncovering the mystery.
A recent episode of the popular word trivia show, Wheel of Fortune, left its viewers inconceivably puzzled and it was only a matter of time before the internet jumped in to share their thoughts.

REALLY? Come on…would it have been so bad to drop an F-bomb in there?
