"Irony" or "Jesus"?

Look carefully at the "scorch marks" on that iron. Is that ...? Yup, yup, you betcha. From FoxNews:

A Massachusetts woman who recently separated from her husband, had her hours at work cut, and moved into an apartment, says an image of Jesus Christ she sees on her iron has reassured her that "life is going to be good."

Mary Jo Coady first noticed the image on Sunday when she walked into her daughter's room. The brownish residue on the bottom of the iron looks like the face of a man with long hair.

The 44-year-old Coady, who was raised Catholic, and her two college-age daughters agree that the image looks like Jesus and is proof that "he's listening."

At first I was puzzled that FoxNews would consider this personal testimonial of a private moment of illumination "news". And then all was illuminated. FoxNews is using Coady's experience to illustrate the "War Against Christmas".

Now check out the photos that just happened to be on the "Monetizing through Advertizing" sidebar.

Who are those hairy Semitic-like men?

Coincidence? I think not.

... and don't forget the apparition of the blessed Virgin on a piece of toast!

AND the most famous of all! Jesus on the grilled cheese sandwich!

Ah, leftdog, I see you are an aficionado of the er, insanity. ;)

Wasn't there another one? In a donut store in the Maritimes?

I don't have knowledge of the miraculous donut, but there was the apparition on the south end of a dog that was heading north!

As well there was the apparition on the dog door that I blogged about awhile back.

ZOMG! That image on the iron looks exactly like me. Does that mean I'm Jesus?

(Apologies for dominating your post .. but I have one more): This last example PROVES that christians DO NOT have a monopoly on miraculous apparitions.

Here is the Hindu god Jagannatha who appeared in a potoato!!

Mmm, it's all good leftdog.

Clearly you're passionate about the topic.

If Mary Jo is in need of holiday gifts this season, perhaps she should check out the "I Love Jesus" underwear now available . . . .

Good grief, someone doesn't know how to iron!

Why don't you all sit down and take a load off your feet?
