Games to play with php playing cards

The picture in this card looked kind of weird, so someone started a discussion whether Joyce is either a) wearing a yellowish t-shirt with a black trim, or b) it's not a t-shirt and she's wearing a black necklace. (See picture here).
It seemed that everyone had an opinion and, nerdy as we are, soon there was a poll up on one of our whiteboards. The losers would buy the winners candybars.
Eventually, there were 9 of us (including me) that voted for the shirt, and only 4 that voted for the necklace. It's clearly a shirt in the picture. Right?
Yesterday, finally, using the obscure means of posting a comment to Joyce's blog, coworker Peter found out the truth.
So I've lost a Mars.
But this smelled fishy. There appears to be an original picture in which the distinction is clearly visible. It appears that the card has been heavily photoshopped. No wonder her necklace turned into a shirt.
So bottom line: Cal, you owe me a Mars.
