Would you believe me if I told you that you can read the letters below? Infact you will read them as easy as you can read this text. Try solving this “hard” Illusion. (The letters aren’t in Japanese actually!) If you still can’t read it, be sure to check the first comment with explanation ;) There are more simmilar tests available in our Tests Category.

  9. vurdlak says:

    theperson was right :)

    (hey, I didn’t make this picture)

  10. Gijs says:

    I saw this somewhere else. It should say “Go on f**k yourself”, so the text was manipulated.

  11. Xake 3 says:

    you are all very silly. it clearly states that “xake pwns U”

  12. napoleon says:


  13. Pandas says:

    either that or it says gaon yourself, but that doesnt make any sense either!!!!

  14. Pandas says:


  15. ming chee yu says:

    no!!!!! it says goon your self!!! there is no space between the 2 “o’s”!!!!!

  16. lonewolfxix says:

    it’s usualy “Go F**K yourself” i was a bit confused when i saw the “Goon yourself”/”Go on yourself!” definitely edited and submitted here… god knows why, it’s been around for ages and probably submitted before.. :S

  17. th anack that smiles bakck says:

    i think this is so weird

  18. Pandas says:

    I still say that it says go on yourself unless its jsut saying that yourself is a crazy goon. there doesnt have to be a space in between the two os, or mabey there really is!!!

  19. Connie says:

    it really is supposed to say “go f**k yourself”
    some one changed it

  20. Chili Beans says:


  21. Robin Moore says:

  22. Anonymous says:

    I think Panda and Robin Moore are right, I mean, hat does “Goon Yourself” mean?

    Still really cool Illusion!

  23. Anonymous says:

  24. Anonymous says:

    It says GOON YOUR SELF!!!!


    goon |goōn| noun informal 1 a silly, foolish, or eccentric person. 2 a bully or thug, esp. one hired to terrorize or do away with opposition : a squad of goons waving pistols.

    ORIGIN mid 19th cent.: perhaps from dialect gooney [booby] ; influenced by the subhuman cartoon character ‘Alice the Goon,’ created by E. C. Segar (1894–1938), American cartoonist.

    Dictionary . . . . . .yes . . . . . .it has definitions of word you dont know.

  26. Anonymous says:

    but that definition has GOON as a NOUN, not a VERB. you cant goon anything.

    go on makes much more sense

  27. Anonymous says:

    ummm omg this was funny when i saw it on funnyjunk.com but it said go f*** yourself!!
    haha what does go on yourself mean??

  28. Anonymous says:

    why does everyone assume that the fourth letter in the second line is an R?

  29. Anonymous says:

    thats not even real japanese letters!!

  30. mmaayyuuE says:

    GOON? What’s goon?

  31. Corrine says:

    /Read/ is spell “READ” in both past and present tense. However, when reading /read/ you change the pronunciation to fit the tense of the story. To help clarify:
    I read a story about a girl running.
    I like to read non-fiction.
    Just change the tense and ask yourself “Does that make sense”? Hope that helps w/our wonderful English language : /

  32. uglyredkitten says:

    goon your self! what the hell!

  33. Anonymous says:

    you people are over-reacting it says soon your self (i have no idea what that means but thats what it means)

  34. Anonymous says:

    this illusion actually used to say “Go F*** yourself”. But because this website is a family friendly environment, I assume they just photoshopped the picture to say something less vulgar. It doesn’t make too much sense though

  35. Anonymous says:

    This one’s weird. Japanese doesn’t even look like that. I’m taking it. I should know.

  36. stephi_luvs_HP says:

    I KNOW! I KNOW! *spoiler alert!* it says GOON YOUR SELF!

  37. Aurora101 says:

    “GOON yourself!” ??
    what kind of prank are you pulling?
    And if it is “go on yourself!”, no thanks, I’d rather use the washroom! :P

  38. blue says:

    Go On Your self. Imagin a men’s restroom sign in your face and you turn your head to read it at the wrong time.

  39. Anonymous says:

    Both ways of smiley’s are right, so Vurdlak is also right and yeah…

  40. Jquie says:

    its totally go on ur self
    or ya’ll cant read

  41. Azilizan says:

    I’ve seen one that says “You look silly”.

  42. Anonymous says:

    What is GOON YOUR SELF? Btw they are not Japanese.

  43. Anonymous says:

    dudes it clearly says “go on yourself” if you tilt your head all the way to the right

  44. Anton says:


  45. videogamequeen says:

    it says “go on yourself”, not “goon yourself”, sillies! :D

  46. ??? says:

    I think the admin, or a mod screwed up here. This 1 is incomplete and should not have been included. 0 out of 10!!!

  47. smileyface says:

    its says “go on your-self!” it was edited for little kids.

  48. Someone says:

    This illusion is useless and should be deleted.

    Not only it’s not Japanese, the real English sentence is also altered so it has become something unfunny. “Go f yourself” is funny but not this.

    The Chinese illusion was great, I’d give 10 star but this is so terrible, I can simply summarize it as “FAIL”.

    Next time I’d like to read something written in hiragana, perhaps katakana with the same meaning and pronunciation in English (such as “armor”, “glue”.. But I don’t think it’s possible.)

  49. japanese guy says:

    originaly it said go f*ck yourself

  50. Umbreon985 says:

    It says GOON yourself! But its not Japanese.

  51. Hot Stuff says:

    It says, “Go on your self!” You can see it if you tilt your head to the right until you’re looking at it sideways. It doesn’t say “Goon your self!” Once again it says,”Go on your self!” Buh bye! :)

  52. liam says:

    oh thanx i thought it said goon your self and i was thinking what the hell it doesn’t make any sense so thanx dude !

  53. bob says:

    i like fried pie

  54. quackle says:

    the original version of this says: “GO F* YOURSELF!” so i kinda got surpised when i read from the other comments “GO ON YOURSELF!”

  55. i.love.illusions says:

    that’s what you say when someone calls you a “goon”;

    “goon, yourself!”

  56. Jez says:

    lol! Goon Yourself!

  57. Mike says:

    Wow, lame, and not lame at the same time…. geez people…. where am i????????

  58. RENAAAE says:

  59. Hi says:
