Better Than A Plastic Jesus

You might remember Joe Isuzu from TV commercials years ago. Well now there’s Jesus Isuzu. Two weeks ago Jim Stevens of Jonesborough, Tennessee, spotted an image of Jesus’ face on the driver side window of his Isuzu pickup truck. Since then, whenever there’s morning dew the visage reappears, only to vanish later in the day when the dew evaporates. He’s tried rolling the window up and down but that hasn’t stopped it. ā€œOf course, Iā€™m not going to wash it,ā€ he says. Of course.

A Chip Off The Holy Block

When a group of students at Blessed Sacrament Catholic School in Burlington, North Carolina, came inside after hearing thunder during soccer try-outs, teacher and coach Nancy Evans saw what looked like a sticker on the wall that looked like the Virgin Mary. When she got closer she realized it was chipped paint, probably caused by a ball that had been bounced against the wall or a chair scraping against it. Principal Sal Trento agreed, as did many of the students, though one described it as “a fish with an antler.” The wall is scheduled to be repainted, though before it is Principal Trento plans to have an art teacher make a tracing of the chip for posterity.

Over the years she kept thinking she should make the shell public. “I kept thinking I should do something around Christmastime. But I didn’t,” she said. But now with Easter coming, she decided it was time. Of course there are those who say it’s the skull of a catfish. Then again….

The Afterworld Can Be Your Oyster

While walking near Johnny Mercer’s Pier in Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina, a man looked down and saw an oyster shell he thought looked like the Virgin Mary. Some say it looks more like Jesus. Others think it’s an angel. The guy who found it thinks he has a bonanza so he put it on eBay where as of this writing, the high bid is only $36. Plus $5 shipping, of course.

Going Out On A Limb

Christopher Moreau was having a drink in his garden in the Toronto suburb of Scarborough when he spotted the likeness of the Virgin Mary on a tree, standing in her traditional open-armed pose. “It raises the hair on your neck, it gives you chills,” he said. His neighbor, and owner of the tree, Eulalee Hamilton says it’s just scarring from a limb that was lopped off a year ago. Moreau has invited people to come by and see it. Hamilton says, “Chris can have all the people he wants on his back deck but I don’t really want people trampling on my garden.”
