"I See ______ On A _______!"

Jesus on a piece of toast?

Potato Chip Jesus?

Pita Jesus?

Really? Why would the return of any god be as ambiguous as this? Wouldn't he want to be seen... reach the masses?

How about instead of appearing to one person after a few minutes of toasting a slice of bread, he knocks on the front door of the Vatican?

"Hey there Mr. Pope, I'm here. Let's get this party started."

How about CNN or The Today Show? How about Wembley? His face appearing on the Sun or the Moon?

(unfortunately, this is probably what we'd do if we saw his face in the moon!)

Garbage Jesus:

It's a shrimp tail sans the shrimp!!! Really? That's how he's going to return? Are people so desperate for his return that they need to see his visage every and any where they can?

And what happened to the Second Commandment? A Google Search reveals many different versions: "You shall not make a graven image" or "You shall not take the Name of the LORD your God in vain" (the inverse being "Respect for God and the things of God") - respect does not come from Jesus' image appearing here:

That's just NOT right.

I just don't get it. Does Buddha appear in toast? We know Allah doesn't because that image is truly forbidden (by death I believe).

In summary, how about we look for our gods WITHIN and not without. Let's NOT see them in...


(and yes, I see a face... but Mildew? - Jesus is peeking into your life through Mildew? Why?)

Chicken Jesus:

Pancake (with a cameo by the Virgin Mother):
