Twitter user cry_syounen posted this photo Thursday on Twitter, where it has been retweeted more than 12,000 times.


"It took about 10 seconds to really understand," cry_syounen wrote.

This person thought it was an ass.

And this person thought it was an ass, as well!

Someone tweeted it in French, too! Where it was retweeted another 2,000 times. "30 damn seconds to understand this image," thelightcarrier wrote.

30 putain de secondes pour comprendre cette image #sfw

This person wrote that they still don't understand what's happening in the photo.

@thelightcarrier @lilipucehyene toujours pas compris :(

And this person said that it's not complicated — the photo obviously shows a man who has crapped out a baby.

@lilipucehyene @brunette1802 @thelightcarrier : Pas compliqué, c'est un homme qui a chié un bébé.

The photo was originally posted on Imgur by Reddit user theyanus.

But if you look closely, you'll see that it's not a butt at all! It's a man kissing his baby!

    No! I knew it was a bald man's head all along, I swear.

UPDATE! The woman behind the photo contacted BuzzFeed!

Danielle Hammel told BuzzFeed News that the photo was taken two years ago and the not-butt man in the photo is her dad Mike. The photo is him kissing granddaughter Lydia.

"My dad posted it to my wall yesterday and last night I guess I realized around 10 o'clock Reddit and everywhere was going crazy," Danielle said.

Danielle said that she isn't sure which one of her Facebook friends put it on Reddit, but the attention has been nuts.

BuzzFeed News asked Danielle if her dad thought he looked like a butt.

"Well, he didn't think he looked like a butt until he saw himself on Kim Kardashian and now he thinks he looks like a butt," she said.
