    This illusion was popularized by Mad Magazine back in the 60s or 70s under a name something like “poyup”. If I knew you to spell it I could probably google it.

    EDIT: Ah, found it – known as blivet, poiuyt, devil’s fork or widget. “It appeared on the March 1965 cover [1] of Mad magazine, where it was dubbed the “Three-Pronged Poiuyt” ”

    Shh. Quiet everyone. Don’t make a sound or you might alarm it. I plan to use it for text in 3d software. Then send the model to a 3d printer. It won’t be able to escape. Finally, finally we’ll catch it.

  4. M, T, U, V, W, Y are disappointingly possible. And don’t even get me started about I.
