2/6/2003: Virgin Mary fence



They're at it again - the masses who "see" the Virgin Mary in something and then have to fawn all over it. In the past we've seen people celebrating a tree stump... now, a fence in Sydney.

They say if you stand in a certain location, at certain times of the day, and squint your eyes real hard you'll see the Virgin Mary. So a photographer took the same shot out of focus, and voila - you can indeed see the image.

It's NOT just a fence and a shadow! It's a divine message, but ONLY if you purposefully mess up your vision. To me, the statement this makes is pretty ironic. But the lesson is sobering: some people will go to incredible lengths to convince themselves that they see what they think they see.

Maybe it's just me...

uhh i don't see a face in this picture at all. maybe i was distracted by the rather attractive derriere of the fine individual in the picture, but i have a feeling those aren't the cheeks i'm supposed to be observing here.

where's the face?



blowmeetheclown  Thursday Feb 6 01:29 PM

I see myself in her pants, but I do not see the VM.



And  Thursday Feb 6 01:54 PM

Kneel before the FENCE OF JAY-ZUS-AH!!

I once saw a landing cargo plane in the night sky, and for years, I had convinced myself it was a Klingon warship, because the first Star Trek movie had come out, and I saw the plane on the way home from watching it.



dave  Thursday Feb 6 01:57 PM

It's not the face. It's supposed to be the whole VM. Look at the blurry picture. The fence does sorta kinda look like the Virgin Mary.



Jacque Strapp  Thursday Feb 6 01:59 PM

With a butt like that, I don't think she'll be a virgin much longer. What's this about a fence?

I think you're supposed to be seeing a profile view of the Virgin Mary with her customary hood on her head, facing the left side of the image, not her face.

Obsoive...

According to whom? The people that designed the white Jesus?
Where's God? I want to know what he says.


hairdog  Thursday Feb 6 03:17 PM

You are all wrong. The Virgin Mary is barely visible in the top of the photo. She is wearing a pink house dress and slippers. Standard Virgin Mary garb.

Anyone else find the timing of this suspicious? Jag leaves the island/continent and suddenly the good side of the force begins exerting itself.

You know, I took one look at the picture and was ready to make some smart comment about the woman next to the fence... but y'all beat me to it. Oh well!!

This stuff is dumb. It's really dumb. But it's mostly harmless. To the extent that it distracts people from the latest TV shows, there may be some minor negative effects in ratings, cause hey, that's what's really important. I've given up railing against the dumbness of these things ("look! the face of Jesus in my croissant!") and just chuckling at them.

It could very well be a cloaked Jedi in winter camouflage. It could be Natalie Portman with a bowl of hot ...

*smack!**smack!* *dull thud*



And  Thursday Feb 6 04:54 PM

Naw, man...

honestly, I don't see why all the jibba jabba about the girlie. She obviously downed a whole case of Noasatol. It looks good now, but any ass that don't have a shadow isn't really an ass, it's a back that split and ran down her legs.



xoxoxoBruce  Thursday Feb 6 05:05 PM

I agree with And. No butt about it.
So the "Virgin" Mary can only be seen by people who can not see clearly. I see.



Thadius  Thursday Feb 6 05:52 PM

I steamed up my bathroom mirror and saw Jesus. I shaved and saw Yule Brenner. I wiped the mirror and saw an ass.

the face and the cloth

OK so I was walking past my friends garage and there was this ladder standing in the middle of the place with a rag draped over one of the steps. From just the right angle it looked exactly like the profile of a man. Amazing.

Then I asked myself "how in the world can I capitalize on this? There are folks out there that will eat this up, especially if I give the rag a little tug and make it look more like Jesus than just any man. I gotta call 911 or Ripley's and have 'em send a rapid response team out and pronto!".

Yep, I needed to get right on that, but I failed. I never reported the obvious visit from beyond, and the result is lost to time.

I DID however find my breaker bar, which the bastard said he'd already returned. A further search yielded two of my Paul Oakenfold CD's and a bottle of cold brew in the fridge.

Spud 'o Christ

I remember the one about Jesus' face on a tortilla and there was some guy who saw him in some biscuits at a restaraunt. They put the biscuits on display as I recall.

This is the link to the famous "Spud 'O Christ" site where He appears on a sliced potatoe in some pub.

Why the link to food, I don't know
