My thought process on seeing the advert 'Make Yourself 3D'

  1. Ooh. That sounds somehow intriguing. I wonder what it means.
  2. Ah. It turns out it means 'Turn yourself 3D by making a character that looks and dresses like you. It's fun and free.' That no longer sounds intriguing, because I am not a nine year old girl. Besides, if I wanted to make a character that looks and dresses like me, I would simply have a child.
  3. Hang on though. Surely if you make a character that's rendered on a flat computer screen, that's turning yourself 2D?
  4. Hang on more... I'm already 3D! I don't need to make myself 3D - three is precisely the number of dimensions in which I currently exist!
  5. I don't think it should have taken me four steps to realise that.
  6. Oh look. A pigeon.
