It’s a new week, which means a new “optical illusion” for the web to sink its teeth into. I wouldn’t call this one an illusion (like this award-winning, shape-shifting illusion), so much as a puzzle, but if you’re looking for a way to avoid work on a nice afternoon here’s a way to do it.

Here’s a rug. More than 18,000 people have shared the picture of said rug on Facebook. Because on top of this rug, somewhere, is a cell phone.

Having trouble? Look closer at the inner blue stripe in the upper right-hand corner.
