Apparently the family whose wall the holy one has graced are just tickled pink. Oh yes, the fact that a bunch of mould spores have gathered in such a way that it looks like Jesus is there hand outstretched, looking a bit like he's trying to say something to them reaffirms their faith no end. I can't help wondering what he's trying to tell them though ... perhaps that they need to clean their walls? I'm just saying.
But it got me to thinking about how many times you hear of someone finding Jesus in the most unusual of places. So, as a favour to you all (and to avoid the washing up, which is what awaits me once I stop procrastinating ... I mean writing) I've had a bit of a search around to find the most interesting and amusing Jesus sightings in inanimate objects. I do it so you don't have to, kids!
Jesus in a dental x ray - Wow this one must suck. You go to the dentist, fully prepared for an awful experience. He sticks you under the x ray, takes the shots, and then when he brings them back to you, not only are you looking at some major root canals ... he found the messiah in your upper jaw!
It's bad enough that He gives you bad teeth, but he's got to stick around to rub it in too?
Jesus in a banana - Okay, now this is just taking the micky! Jesus in a banana? What next? But I guess you learn something new every day. It turns out Jesus is an excellent source of potassium and is delicious when served with hot custard.
Maybe it's just me, but the fact that there's a picture of a religous icon on a phallic piece of fruit ... well I could be giggling about that one for days.
Jesus in a frying pan - Now I'm going to have to call bullshit on this one. There's no way this happened without human intervention! And lets be honest, if it was really a picture of Jesus, it'd be of a middle eastern Jewish guy, not of caucasian dude who looks like he should be on a religious themed Christmas card!
I'm just saying, if you were going to produce such an obvious fake, couldn't you at least have NOT picked a picture which I'm pretty sure is copywrited by The Vatican?
Actually, the more I think about it, it's a pretty cruel thing for Jesus to do to him! Bad form, Jesus!
Personally, I love the lunacy required to believe this. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for believing in far fetched things. I'm the first on any bandwagon going, but when they're such obvious fakes or coincidences, and people still put all their faith in them, I can't help thinking it's sad. Amusing, but sad.
But the "Jesus found in an unusual place" picture that I like the best is this one.
