    This art work is just an illusion.

    What, Jay, you’ve never seen a Space Fork before?
    I thought ever geek and/or engineer had one kicking around somewhere. Mine’s in the drawer where I keep my Sky Hook along with a roll of Flight Line and a box of Ohms.

    Wow, a genuine M.C.Escher! Worth it!

    Drawing it isn’t so hard. I’ve been reproducing that silly thing all my life. Figuring out how to color the background- that was tricky. You really can’t use much color or you break the illusion.

    Ode to Escher! But I never knew this had its own name. Thanks, icky.

    That would rate a ‘bazinga’ for sure.

    It’s had more than one name. Blivitt is the first one I knew, but when MAD used it, they thought it was new (a reader sent it in and MAD took ownership,) they gave it their own name. "Pouyiout " or something. I don’t remember exactly.

    A 3 prong, 2 slot blivit, called a poiuyt by a Mad Magazine cartoonist looking at the top row of letters on his typewriter.

    We used to put threads on the three bars; …tines?..spindles?…rods?

    Now can you make the square socket for the three prong Blivitt? I made one out of stained glass once. My art professor thought I was nuts.

    You gave me enough info to Google it: “Mad poiuyt”. I’m old enough to remember it!

    The kind of architecture Lovecraft was trying to invoke in his stories especially “Call of Cthulhu.”

    Not as hard to draw as it is to sculpt.

    I saw it in MAD magazine in the early ’60s when I was in high school. I remember Veeblefetzer and Potzrebie, too. My Geometry teacher turned us on to it.
