Yawning, trompe l'oeil bottomless pits aren't just for big-city sidewalks anymore. Now you can have one of your own, useful for keeping pesky humans away from your home, office, UFO, etc. Just roll out a mat showing the chasm of your choice--hole in office floor, bottomless pit, snake pit, and maw of Hell--and watch the gadflies flee.

       Wile E Coyote had a portable hole he'd roll out. Seemed desperate and unlikely and sure enough, roadrunner would never go down. When Wile E became exasperated and tried himself.............oh......I wonder...................Also liked where the cliff would break off and he's manage to jump from the peninsula bit to the main mountain at the last minute, but which bit would proceed to plummet.........?

       DrCurry: thanks for pointing that out, and for correcting linkage. how about trompe d'oeil on hats, clothing to provide your personal insights to the anonymous crowd. Or for a reallly outre insight, tattoo trompe d'oeil.
