Remember the Magic Eye Puzzle Granny? This is her American counterpart, Color Blindness Test Granny. If you can’t read the backwards number seven in the above photo, then you have to go to the doctor.

Hughster took this photo in Manhattan Chinatown and noted that while it’s hard to see, Granny is in fact wearing a “Football Is Life” hat.
