This photo shows six women on a couch, and only five pairs of legs. Go ahead, count them.

This is the M.C. Escher of group photos.

The third woman in from the left... her legs! Where are they?

These are the presiding theories:

1. The second girl's legs are actually pointing toward the left, one leg is behind Girl #1, and the other leg is on top of Girl #1.

Here, a redditor illustrates this idea:

This still doesn't show where Girl #2's second leg is, but it's a start.

Notice that ankle showing between the shoe and jeans on the yellow leg? Even if that is one of the missing legs, whatever is happening with Girl #2's body is very strange.

2. The third girl's legs are spit down the middle.

This is when it really pays off to sit on the arm of the couch.

Again, Girl #2's leg is on top of Girl #1 here, but for this scenario to work, Girl #2 would have to be wearing jeans with different colored legs. Gross.

3. Girl #3 actually has no legs.

Sometimes the simplest answer is the right one.

This is not the first time the internet has struggled to understand a woman's legs. What do you guys think?
