It might take a second, but once you see what's lurking under this bus bench, you can't unsee it.

This photo of an unsuspecting woman playing with her phone was taken shortly before 9 a.m. recently in Palms at the intersection of Sepulveda Blvd. and Charnock Road, according to a Redditor who posted the photo. (There's a larger version here.)

The poster with the great handle IliveinLAandIvote writes that he called the cops to check in on what was going on, but he writes that he didn't think that the woman knew what lurked beneath. The photographer said the guy had sunglasses on and wasn't "dressed like a bum" but seemed "clean cut." It's hard to tell exactly what's going on in this photo—it's not clear whether the guy is passed out or enjoys creeping below bus benches.

We hope the bus or police (or both) came quickly.
