A Plate Full of Holy Images

I’m one of those folks who always thinks people I meet for the first time look like someone famous, although it may be at the D-list level.

It never fails I’ll tell Newscoma, “Hey, didn’t you think so-and-so looked just like Mr. Whipple from the Charmin commercials or that chick could have been the twin sister of the third dancer on the left in the WHAM video from 1986.”

However, I don’t see holy images in my lunch nor the trees outside my home nor the oil spill in my driveway.

Apparently, I’m in the minority on this though.

The Chicago Tribune has compiled a dozen images of everything from scorched paneling to grilled cheese to bark to pretzels that supposedly have been blessed by images of the Virgin Mary, Muhammad and Jesus.

I’ll show you one, but you have to go here for the rest.

Ta da – I present to you the famous Virgin Mary on a grilled cheese samich.
