Like Cheesy Mother Like Cheesy Son

Jason Amaya of Lake Station, Indiana was watching a religious TV show when he reached into his bag of Cheetos and pulled one out that he says looks like a miniature Virgin Mary standing with her arms crossed. He’s holding onto it and showing it to family and friends but doesn’t know what, if anything, he’ll do with it. Maybe he should get together with Dan Bell of Preston Hollow, Texas, who found a Cheeto in May he says looks like a praying Jesus with one arm that he nicknamed Cheesus and start a Cheetos creche.

Which Came First, The Faith Or The Egg?

Tracy Norrell of Burleson, Texas, was collecting eggs from his chicken coop Monday night when he noticed that, well, one of the eggs didn’t look like the others. It wasn’t smooth and had a cross indented in one end. He and his wife Pam think the egg was laid “straight from heaven” and is a message of encouragement. They haven’t decided what to do with the egg yet but say eating it is out of the question.

Truckin’ Along With Mary

A woman named Sharon emailed ABC-7 in El Paso, Texas, to let them know she and her family saw an image of the Virgin Mary at a Petro truck stop. The TV station sent a crew out that found the water stain and took a photograph of it. Good thing too, since the truck stop’s maintenance crew washed the stain off within days.

Pressing Religious Concerns

No sooner had Janie Guerra, a pants presser at Comet Cleaners in Harlingen, Texas, returned to her station after lunchtime prayers than she noticed a familiar image on the press head pad. “I pick up the pants and I see the Virgin Mary,” she says. Store owner Buddy Fischer didn’t want to sell the press pad, nor turn it into a shrine and have the store flooded with pilgrims, so he printed up copies of the photograph Guerra had taken with her cell phone, handed them out, and kept using the press. Before long the image faded. “I had to,” he says. “I had 700 pairs of pants to press.”

Cheeses Priced

Dan Bell of Preston Hollow, Texas, and his wife Sara were heading out of town on a trip last week when they decided to stop in a gas station for road snacks. Sara had eaten most of the Cheetos when she noticed the one left in her hand looked like a praying Jesus. A quick fried to a crackly crunch Jesus with a missing right arm. They’ve nicknamed it “Cheesus” and are keeping it in a plastic box while they decide its fate.

Trial By Fire(place)

It was Easter Sunday and Connie Lopez of Refugio, Texas, was crying and praying in her dining room. When she looked up she thought she saw an image of the Virgin Mary in a stone above the fireplace. “It wasn’t there in December when we were decorating it,” she says. She was called inside and forgot about the image until April 19 when fellow parishioners came over for a spaghetti dinner and one of them saw it. Since then more than 200 people from at least 26 Texas cities have dropped by to see the stone. Some see Jesus, other angels, Our Lady of Guadalupe, or the pope. Viewing hours are 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Saturday and 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday, at 406 Ymbacion St., Refugio, Texas.
