Jesus In The Brick

Commuters in Sydney might have felt a little safer knowing that Jesus was watching them at the Waverton train station. And it might make you less likely to litter. Or not.

Jesus In A Bedsheet

This could make for a very uncomfortable night of lovemaking! Stuart Hadwin of St Kilda, Australia saw this sheet in a Salvation Army store. Local residents have been calling it the "Shroud of St Kilda." Local residents have also been asked to wash their sheets with detergent.

Virgin Mary of the Underpass

If you happened to be in Chicago around in the spring of 2005, you might driven past the Virgin Mary of the Underpass at Fullerton Street. It seems wherever Mary pops up she brings the drama! After hundreds of people flocked to see the Virgin Mary, or "salt stain" as some pagans have put it, Mary was painted over, then unpainted, then painted again. The city cited safety reasons in covering up Mary for the final time. The only thing I know for sure is that salt stains can make some beautiful shades of blue.

Jesus of the Rock

In May of 2006, Gregorio Gomez of Mexico had a dream and the voice in the dream told him he would find an image of Christ on a rock. And sure enough, Gregorio Gomez found an image of Christ on a rock! The only voices I hear in my dreams is my bladder yelling at me to get up and go before I wet myself.

Virgin Mary of the Grilled Cheese

The sightings of all sightings. A Miami woman who hung onto this sandwhich for 10 years got $28,000 for it on ebay!, an online casino, confirmed that it had the winning bid. Now if you're an online casino, how are people going to get to see...Oh nevermind.

To me it looks more like a Greta Garbo of the Grilled Cheese, but who am I to argue with an online casino? Damn, they don't make classy Hollywood ladies like this anymore, do they?

Mary and Jesus in Funyuns

Here's law clerk John Mize holding a Funyun he found under his car seat that resembles the Virgin Mary and baby Jesus. Seems like a nice little thing to pull out and show your friends once in awhile, but John decided to put the Funyun on ebay and got $609 bucks for it. When I check under my car seat I usually find a slew of parking tickets, a pen cap, and a Todd the Wet Sprocket CD. Certainly nothing worth $609!

Virgin Mary of the Fence Post

Back in 2003, something strange was happening with one of the fence rails at Coogee Beach, in Australia. When looked at during a certain time of day and at a particular angle and distance (whew!) the fence took the shape of the Blessed Virgin. Soon after its discovering, though, local hooligans vandalized "Rail Mary." The fence has since been replaced, but Mary never quite looked the same. I can see why Mary would want to hang out there, what a view this beach has!

Jesus In A Fish Fillet

I know it sounds a bit fishy, but Fred Whan of Ontario, Canada, was cooking up some fillets on night, flipped one over, and discovered Jesus Himself staring back at him. Remember "no meat Fridays" all you non-practicing Catholics? And how mom would cook you up a fish fillet sandwich for dinner and said it was just like McDonald's but it actually tasted like it came from McCrapland? Anyway just like former congressman William Jefferson, Fred Whan has decided that the best place to keep his treasure safe is in his freezer.
