Guitar v3

Another man has seen Jesus in his guitar, and was so moved that he made a website for it called Guitar With a Face (with more pics). Catchy, but it's no Stuff That Looks Like Jesus.

Pareidolia Roundup

Happy Easter, aka Zombie Jesus Day! I hope all our readers are eating their full of chocolate bunny brains. In the meantime, have some links.

Elephant face on Mars.

The strangest things show up in testicles these days.

From the "what will they think of next?" department: Turtles that look like Mitch McConnell.

Demon behind the sofa! It's definitely a creepy picture once you see the face, but possibly doctored.

Potato chips are common sources of pareidolia, and people find the strangest things in them.

Reader Jennifer submitted this finding of crucified Jesus on an apple that her grandparents were going to cut up to make applesauce. I can only sort of make out a head and torso, so now I am picturing a legless Jesus on a crucifix singing Life of Brian's "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life."

People are apparently going nuts over this shadowy Jesus image which appeared in a New Orleans chapel, as thousands have visited there in the past week. Apparently a student recently prayed for a sign and then noticed the shadow... which had always been there, cast by a chandelier. But The Lord has never been concerned with such minor details like facts.

Earlier today it was reported that a South Carolina woman discovered Jesus on the back of a dead stingray that washed ashore. The woman, Erica Scheldt, took pictures because she originally thought the image just looked like a "bearded homeless man." She had yet to learn that any apparent body or face is obviously Jesus!

Hat tip: MountPleasantPatch (which includes a poll)

UPDATE: I only noticed after posting that this is STLLJ's 200th sighting! May Jesus continue to bless us with his barely discernible images.

Cloud Image

Jesus decided to appear as a shadow on some clouds in one of his traditional poses. The pose is necessary because we couldn't know it was really him otherwise; Jesus never did learn to have an eye for detail.

Window #6

Kara Small submitted this finding of Jesus hiding in a window, which she discovered in a picture she took of an obviously blessed house. She even helpfully circled the ghostly apparition and added a Jesus face for comparison. I'm convinced!

Another Cat

Reader Richard from the UK sent in this picture of an old cat, showing that Jesus makes his way everywhere. Unfortunately the cute kitty is now dead, but he will be forever remembered as having a blessed belly!

Door #14

Reader Richard Gonzales discovered Jesus hiding in yet another door. This image is so clear and so miraculous that Richard claims it caused him to convert to Christianity from being an atheist.

I suppose a door is about as rational a reason as any to find religion.

Pareidolia Roundup

Earlier this year, a piece of dried glue that looks like Homer Simpson sold for... 152,000 pounds??? That's something like $240,000. I think Mary is now a little pissed off that she was so undervalued!

Additionally, a George Washington chicken nugget was sold for $8,100. That money apparently went to charity, which makes it seem a little less obscene.

More pareidolia: Garfield popcorn, angry lunar rock, and baby Venom. I can't decide whether that last one is awesome or horrifying.

Someone who is awesome decided to check whether facial recognition software is also susceptible to pareidolia. The answer: yes! Though the computer will sometimes register different things as the eyes or mouth and miss others that a human would consider obvious.
