Someone alert the Vatican.

These iconographic images have appeared miraculously in my very own house.
This one is clearly the Holy Ghost.
And this could either be the Virgin Mary when she was still only an egg or the fertility goddess Estra. I can't be sure, but either way, there is something mystical going on around here. Something sacred. And not just of the "Oh, God!" exclamation variety. Which is actually ironic, given the unholy mess I find myself in these days. Maybe having my home turn into a pilgrimage site will change everything for me.

  3. The egg made me think of Mr. Bill, from SNL long ago, just when Sluggo was about to do something bad to him.
    Good one.

  4. the cheese and eggs certainly have the "omg" expression going on. i'm thinking they are worried about their respective fates.

  8. The thing is you have to make cheap, poorly painted plastic bottle replicas of the visions, fill them with tapwater and offer them for healing to the public for $10.00.

    Now you can retire.

  9. It's funny how we are "programmed" to see faces in slices of cheese or the full moon etc. It explains how Christians see the Virgin Mary in a hold slice of toast...

    1. And to fit those faces into a framework that makes sense given your own belief system.

    I became mesmerized driving behind an SUV the other night...the rear lights and configuration of the rear hatch was clearly a rather angry face :)

  15. Quick, check the toast! I'll bet there's Christ on the Cross or something. Isn't that the traditional one?

  17. I have found that as my eyes are aging, I see things where they are not, and totally make up things that are not there. But this? It is so clearly hol(e)y!
