Wife forced to defend husband after VERY embarrassing optical illusion pic leaves him short-changedNovember 1, 2021
A WIFE has been forced to defend her husband after a seemingly innocent snap with the family dog left him short-changed.
Ben Glews posed for a heartwarming photo with five-year-old bulldog Boss in bed at their home in Kingswinford, West Midlands, and wife Lisa shared it online.
But the couple was mortified when the sweet picture went viral after people mistook Boss’ tiny member for his owner's.
Ben, 42, had his body mistaken for the pooch's as the dog's stretched-out frame created an optical illusion because of the unfortunate positioning.
Stunned users floodedthought he was posing nude – even commenting they “felt sorry” for funeral celebrant Linda, 45, as Ben appeared to have such a tiny todger or a "micropenis".
Four-stone Boss threw his head back and snuggled into electronics technician Ben's neck, meaning his head can't be easily seen.
His tan body and legs facing the camera, appeared to seamlessly blend into Ben's body, and Ben's arms thrown round him further caused the confusion.
Within hours of the cute picture being shared online, it racked up more than 600 likes and comments – forcing Linda to have to reassure people Ben "hasn't been castrated".
Ben said: "I thought people were mad, I remember thinking 'surely they can see it's a dog?'.
"It was just an off-the-cuff photo on Saturday morning, I'd just woken up with the dog lying on me like that.
"The wife said 'aww let's take a photo, that's lovely ', she put it on Facebook and it went semi-viral. I was shocked.
"You look at it one time and you don't see anything and then you look at it again.
"I was just flicking through my Facebook and the post came up as I was scrolling and I did a double-take myself – then realised it was my picture.
"At that point I understood what people were talking about."
Despite the snap being mistaken for a saucier shot, Ben said he's glad to have given people a laugh.
He joked: "Some have commented saying they felt sorry for Linda because of my 'micropenis'.
"It's definitely not me and I don't have a micropenis.
"It's not like we were trying to do it but if we can give somebody a laugh, why not?
"After the last year or so any bit of light heartedness is good for anybody, it's nice to put a smile on people's faces."
Linda said it took her a while to realise the unintentional furore she'd created after uploading the photo of Boss enjoying a regular cuddle with Ben.
The mum-of-one said: "Boss regularly climbs into bed for a hug, he likes to get right in between us and he likes to put his head on you or his paw.
"He will spread eagle between us and push us both to the edge of the bed, he's very spoiled.

"I took the picture on Saturday morning and I said to my husband 'do you mind me putting it on Facebook?' and he said 'not at all'.
"When I initially put it on there one of my friends commented 'I had to look twice then', which left me and my husband both questioning what they were talking about, we didn't understand.
"We had no idea what the issue was, but then the comments started flying in.
"I still see the picture as Ben cuddling Boss, but I now understand what people see – that it looks like Ben is naked in bed.
"I've replied in the comments reassuring people that my husband doesn't like posting his bits on Facebook, and that he hasn't been castrated either.
"I also said that unfortunately Boss doesn't like wearing pants. I'm still shocked that so many people commented and gobsmacked by what people have said because it was such an innocent photo but I obviously caught it at a fantastic angle.
"It's funny but it's quite embarrassing for my husband with people thinking he's got a micropenis.
"He doesn't have a micropenis, there's no complaints in that department."
