Something Is Seriously Weird About These Shadows — They Don’t Add Up

Shadow puppets are a great way to entertain children, adults, and even pets. If you can contort your body or hands in front of a light source, the possibilities are only limited by your imagination.

But these people and things weren’t contorting themselves at all, they just happened to make crazy-weird shadows. Some don’t necessarily seem to add up when you take a closer look…
