If you were alive during the ’90s, you likely have warm feelings towards Where’s Waldo? Martin Handford’s picture book games starred a huge panorama of tiny figures, and the reader was meant to find Waldo (or Wally, as he was known overseas), a red-and-white-striped traveler. Handford’s immaculately detailed work meant you could spend hours trying to find Waldo — and lots of other stuff, too. But have you ever heard of “Subtle Dildo”?

Where’s Waldo? was huge. There were comics, a saturday morning cartoon, CD-ROM games and more. And while Subtle Dildo, an Instagram account, may not have the same merchandising opportunities, it’s basically an updated Waldo for millennials. They just made one subtle change — swapping out the stripey nerd for a dildo.

Subtle Dildo debuted February 2, 2014, the day of Super Bowl XLVIII:

You’d be forgiven for thinking this is just a pic of four guys hanging out on the couch watching the game. But if you look a little closer, you’ll notice something amiss. There’s a weird shadow on the lampshade … and it looks surprisingly phallic.

Of course, we’re big fans of dildos here. We’ve talked about their history, their use in protest and how funny they look attached to a drone. It makes sense — dicks are funny, fake things are funny — therefore fake dicks are hilarious.

But the semi-anonymous creators of Subtle Dildo aren’t content to just rely on the cheap joke. The images are perfectly composed. Each tells a story in one shot — often having nothing to do with the dildo. For example, this one is Star Wars fan-fic in one panel:

This one features a, uh, unfortunate accident:

And this one warns of the dangers of Muppets outside:

How did you do — did you find any of the dildos? If so, congratulations! If not, keep looking. A hint: You won’t always find the dildo where you would expect to. In some of the images, finding the dildo is really hard. (Unlike the dildos themselves, which look kinda floppy.)

Were you able to find the subtle dildo in each pic?
