Simulacra Round up- Frying pan Jesus


Last week bank cashier Toby Elles dozed off while cooking bacon. Woken by the smoke he looked in the scorched pan he was stunned and saw an image of Jesus.. or the usual image of a bearded hippy type anyway...

I suppose it has no rasher-nal explanation....

How does he know it's an image of Jesus? Does he have contacts which we don't? Is the frying pan picture signed?

I think Toby is a prat.

Now that is scarily realistic! Or remarkably close to the artist's impression ...

You can find the Lord in the most surprising places.

Indeed. Calum one look at a beardie with long hair and it's Jesus... Strange that nobody ascribes these images to,say Charles Manson

To the streotype image anyway Liz

And strangee he never appears on utesils and a dog's arse but never when people really need him... A very strange deity if you ask me

They appear all over the place don't they!

Echoing Calum, It always amazes me those people who worship or just notice with astonishment a supposed image when in fact they have no idea whatever what the man actually looked like, or what his Mum looked like, and whatever they looked like doubtless countless people looked rather similar. But, oh... that looks like "Ahmed Walabi" or "that looks like Maria Baravi" doesn't quite get the same attention, does it? People are stupid, gullible, credulous, irrational, with no hope of repair... Sometimes marks can look a bit like people, and like lots of other things too. It happens. Sigh.

He he. Strange, that, taking into account that JC, being of Jooish persuasion, could hardly take to this specific basic material. I mean bacon... mmm... how about a lunch?

I'm not convinced. In fact, I think it's singer Dan Hill in the 70s (I believe he's less hairy these days.)

Boy, the things I learn on this blog... I went to a LinkWithin doohickey and discovered that Jesus also appeared on a a terrier's bum!

Also, I ticked "prolix", not because this is, but because I've been dying to do that for ages...

Andrew as far as I am concerned it is just pareidola writ large. Harmless and I find amusing. It's true that an image of uncle Bert never makes it into the news but who would be interestsd!

Perhaps JC was registering his disapproval Snoopy!

I'll have to look up Dan Hill, Knatolee. Link within is good isn't it?

This is just fun. If someone can make a buck, or two, because of a bearded face on his frying pan, good luck to him. I don't remember who said there's a sucker born any minute. BTW, Jams, I ticked your 3 choices there. Just for a laugh. Like Knatolee, I wanted to do that for a long time. And this is just the post for it. I don't even know what PROLIX means. Hahaha!

Never trust a man/boy who wears a ring on his index finger

jams o donnell said...

Ah it means extremely wordy.. like being beated to death with a dictionary, CLaudia!

THe one born every mnute ws P T Barnum, I think

Good advice nursemyra!
