7/11/2005: Christ on a chip



Ever heard the expression "Christ on a cracker!" ? Well I have, and that's why I saved this one off... a rather ordinary sighting, as they go, of Christian icons in various places.

Rosalie Lawson was about to bite into the sour cream and onion potato chip as she watched TV when she suddenly spotted the image.

"I said to myself: "Oh my goodness"," she said. "I showed it to my husband Jerry and he was pretty amazed too."

Deeply religious Mrs Lawson, 55, whose father-in-law the Very Rev. LeRoy Lawson was the first dean of St Petersburg Cathedral in their home town, is now pondering what to do with it.

"It's sitting in a jar in the kitchen while we decide," she said. "We may sell it - I'm not really sure."



Leah  Monday Jul 11 09:14 PM

Call me blind, but I can't see the resemblance. It just looks like a rotten chip to me.



FloridaDragon  Monday Jul 11 09:22 PM

I hate to say it but it looks like Ms Piggy in a wig....guess you can see whatever you choose to in these things....



capnhowdy  Monday Jul 11 09:22 PM

Looks like an airedale to me.
I'm sure it's the onion/ sour cream thingie, but ...(wanna talk about chemistry?)
"It's sitting in a jar in the kitchen while we decide," she said. "We may sell it - I'm not really sure."
Not sure, my ass. Why didn't she eat the damn thing?
I'm confident Jerry will agree...
" Let's sell this fokka before it gets too stale."
AN IMAGE I'M SURE WE'LL SEE ONE DAY SOON :
CHRIST ON TOILET PAPER...heee heee...think I had that.. ahem well..just joking.
At least nobody pissed on it.
Good image. I enjoyed it.



capnhowdy  Monday Jul 11 09:27 PM

Ya know come to think of it, it looks like the Zig-Zag man...



lumberjim  Monday Jul 11 09:33 PM

looks like satan to me. satan on a chip. and its sitting right there in those peoples home. theyre gonna burn in hell for it, it tells ya.



Leah  Monday Jul 11 09:33 PM

look what I found.
Is it Jesus? ... An Italian man is convinced the image of Christ appears on this oyster shell. The 38 year-old owner decided to put the shell up for sale after a woman in Florida auctioned off a grilled cheese sandwich allegedly bearing an image of the Virgin Mary to an online casino last November for $US28,000 ($37,000) / Reuters / News Limited picture



Leah  Monday Jul 11 09:37 PM

You can only see the oyster if you reply to this comment. Don't know why. What did I do wrong???



capnhowdy  Monday Jul 11 09:40 PM

Be careful.... "They" say oysters make you wanna....



sandra77  Monday Jul 11 09:41 PM

I can't see either image. What are these people smoking? The first one looks like a skull with long black hair. Kind of like a logo to a very heavy metal group.

Thanks for doing this. I enjoy every new image.



Leah  Monday Jul 11 09:42 PM

Oh Christ, maybe I should get some then.



SteveDallas  Monday Jul 11 10:32 PM

It looks like a figure from Kingdom of Loathing to me!



Trilby  Monday Jul 11 11:04 PM

Well, it's obviously Christ and for those of you can't see it--have fun in hell!



Elspode  Monday Jul 11 11:27 PM

I think the chip looks like Jerry Garcia...



Elspode  Monday Jul 11 11:40 PM

It seems that spurious deity/icon sightings can incite violence.

EAST CHICAGO, Ind. - City officials have turned off a streetlight that drew more than 250 people to see a shadow that some say resembles the image of Jesus Christ.

East Chicago Police Chief Angelo Machuca called an emergency meeting Sunday to recommend the light be turned off in the interest of public safety after nearby residents complained about blocked cars and visitors congregating until 5 a.m.

Several arrests were made Friday night after a large fight broke out in the area.

"The city respects everyone's religious beliefs, but it's getting to the point now where it's almost too dangerous" to leave the light on, said Damian Rico, the city's public relations director.

People have flocked to the site since Wednesday, when a woman first claimed to see the image on the side of a tree. The image is only visible at night when the streetlight near the tree is illuminated.

Machuca said his department doesn't have the manpower to maintain regular patrols and control the crowd.

"The light will remain off until we can get some kind of solution," he said.



xoxoxoBruce  Tuesday Jul 12 12:18 AM

Well Jesus was on the chip until that crazy lady licked him away with the dip.



magilla  Tuesday Jul 12 06:14 AM

The chip

I SEE IT! I SEE IT! It's a message from God...It's spelling it out...It's telling me...E.....B....A....Y!!!!

Sheesh. I tell you, religious mania is reaching epidemic proportions in the USA. It's a little scary, really. And I realize that contradicts my earlier cynical commercial message.

I don't know what's worse... not eating it and saving it in a jar for eternity or selling it on ebay. IT'S A CHIP!!! Eat the damn thing!!!

kerosene  Tuesday Jul 12 01:56 PM

I think I would sell it if I managed to recognize the image in the frenzy of stuffing my face with chip n dip. Why not? If someone wants to buy into the hype, why not let them? They already do, anyway.



Trilby  Tuesday Jul 12 02:18 PM

What is better than sour cream dip and ridged potato chips? And Tomato chips? Nothing.
Except celery stix and bleu cheese...and stewed tomatoes with crutons and an oinion blossom with thousand island...Ohhhh!

must...make...grilled...cheese...



grazzers  Tuesday Jul 12 02:27 PM

Wait, I think I see it! Hang on, no, it's just a crisp. I'd sell it, keep the really stupid people of the world out of pocket, makes sense...



mrnoodle  Tuesday Jul 12 05:53 PM

stewed tomatoes with croutons?

seriously?

that's unholy. does anyone else do that?



xoxoxoBruce  Tuesday Jul 12 11:06 PM

Beautiful dog papabell. Yours?

I think its a Protestant chip because the Catholics seem to be going Doritos.



Leah  Tuesday Jul 12 11:09 PM

Looks more like pizza slices.

Trilby  Wednesday Jul 13 10:47 AM

Definitely a midwest thing. The stewed tom's have to be very, very hot. It's really good with a juicy filet mignon and hash browns. Mmmmmmmmmmm! I'm worried about myself. I've never, ever been this into food as I am now. It's disturbing. Food was always the enemy before and I ate it only to see how few calories I could consume. My eye always went to the low-fat salad and steamed, no butter, veggie plate. Now I dream of sour cream, cheese, mayonnaise and buttery dishes. Must get self to Jenny Craig before all is lost.

You can taste now, and you have this thing that you'd been missing called an appetite ...

Have you started putting 4-5 teaspoons of sugar on your already sugar-coated cereal yet?

Not yet, but I did buy two bags of fun-sized heath and snickers bars. I'm dipping them in Cheesecake flavored Philly Cream Cheese Overcome my addiction only to die of heart disease. Pity.


Queen of the Ryche  Wednesday Jul 13 02:49 PM

At least you'll die happy.

OMG Bri, that's a lotta calories! Please tell me you're taking up walking or biking or something to help keep yourself busy too...yikes.



Trilby  Wednesday Jul 13 05:07 PM

I'm working my ass off at the animal shelter. Literally. I work there from 8-1 most days cleaning, scrubbing, mopping, swabbing, sweeping, hauling, lugging and walking. Sometimes I even get to play with the kitties! That's the reward.



bluecuracao  Wednesday Jul 13 07:40 PM

There's CHEESECAKE flavored cream cheese now?! Just slather on a few graham crackers...and a few more...and...and...thank god I don't live near a "real" grocery store!

We no longer have to wait to see miracles in bread related products. With some modifications we could have Christ In Every Slice. In fact I think I should register that brand.

Virgin Mary Chocolate

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20060818/..._virgin_mary_2

Quote:
FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif. - As a chocolatier to the rich and famous, Martucci Angiano has posed with many celebrities but on Thursday she held in her hand a figure that dazzles her more than any Hollywood star.

Workers at Angiano's gourmet chocolate company, Bodega Chocolates, discovered under a vat a 2-inch-tall column of chocolate drippings that they believe bears a striking resemblance to the Virgin Mary.

Since the discovery Monday, Angiano's employees have spent much of their time hovering over the tiny figure, praying and placing rose petals and candles around it.

"I was raised to believe in the Virgin Mary, but this still gives me the chills," Angiano said as she balanced the dark brown figure in her hand. "Everyone should see this."

Kitchen worker Cruz Jacinto was the first to spot the lump of melted chocolate when she began her shift Monday cleaning up drippings that had accumulated under a large vat of dark chocolate.

Chocolate drippings usually harden in thin, flat strips on wax paper, but Jacinto said she froze when she noticed the unusual shape of this cast-off: It looked just like the Virgin Mary on the prayer card she always carries in her right pocket.

"When I come in, the first thing I do is look at the clock, but this time I didn't look at the clock. My eyes went directly to the chocolate," said Jacinto, dressed in a hair net and apron as she paused from her work. "I thought, 'Am I the only one who can see this? I picked it up and I felt emotion just come over me. For me, it was a sign."

The chocolate, on display for most of the week in the front of the company gift shop, now rests in a plastic case in a back room and is brought out only for curious visitors.

The stack of hardened confection has a wide base and tapers gently toward a rounded top, giving the appearance of a female figure with her head tilted slightly to the right. The dark brown melting chocolate hardened into subtle layers that resemble the folds of a gown and a flowing veil.

A tiny white circle, about the size of a pencil eraser, sits in the upper center of the creation, just above a slight ridge that runs across it. Cruz says the white speck is the head of the Baby Jesus as he is held in Mary's folded arms.

For Jacinto, the discovery came just in time. Raising a son on her own, she has struggled with marital problems for months and says she was about to lose her faith.

"I have big problems right now, personally, and lately I've been saying that God doesn't exist," she said, pulling the dog-eared prayer card out of her pocket. "This has given me renewed faith."

Angiano, who co-owns the 10-year-old company with her sister, has rubbed shoulders with plenty of stars in her job.

The gourmet boutique runs booths at all the big awards shows, including the Emmys, the Golden Globes, the Oscars, the Country Music Awards and the Latin Grammys. Pictures of Angiano with top celebrities and her chocolates line the office walls.

But this week's brush with the image of a 2,000-year-old idol has left even Angiano star-struck.

"That's our Oscar right there," she said.



wolf  Thursday Aug 17 11:55 PM

I prefer these.



Elspode  Friday Aug 18 12:11 AM

But the Virgin Mary chocky is a miracle, because it was an accident...just like baby Jesus.



wolf  Friday Aug 18 01:28 AM

Perhaps, but honestly, don't you think that looks a lot more like a Ral Partha figure of a cloaked orc carrying a string of skulls over it's shoulder?

It looks even more like a chocolate stalagmite.

I can understand not eating a burnt potato chip, but that's chocolate! That it reminds this gal of some Dark Ages artist's idea of what Mary may have looked like does not make it a holy relic.
