Simulacrum ad absurdam


We’ve seen Jesus appear on may items including kitchen utensils and a terrier’s arse but it’s time for the Saviour to have a rest and let a mere mortal get in on the act.

According to the Wakefield Express Rich Rigby hurt his leg when he came off his motorbike. He escaped the accident with just a hurt knee, which swelled to an unusual shape due to titanium plates he had in his leg following a football injury in 2001. It was only at the pub, that friends started saying they could see the face of his favourite footballer Wayne Rooney.

"All his facial features were there, you could see his small ears, nose and he even had a beard like the real Rooney." He said

Mr Rigby said he hoped the bizarre swelling was a sign that Manchester United would win the Premier League and that Rooney would have a cracking World Cup for England.

And I thought it was Shrek.....

Rooney would have a cracking World Cup for England only if Mr Rigby had landed on his head, I am afraid.

Speaking as a veteran Brazil fan, of course...

It does look like Wayne Rooney (even if only because Rooney looks a bit like a fat knee), but how do you know that it doesn't also look like Jesus? Maybe Jesus looked like Rooney. Does anyone know?

If Jesus looked like Shrek Andrew then I can understand why he would rther be portrayed as a hippy!
