No, it doesnt. It looks like a creepy man wearing a cone hat with a claw as his right hand and a disfigured left arm. Call Ghostbusters!

That's a burning cross. Obviously a signal to the KKK.

Glasses Are We Hardwired to See Jesus in Toast?

Does that smear of jam on your toast look a bit like Uncle Al ... or Jesus? It's pretty normal to try to recognize features in the flotsam and jetsam of our lives.

At least they're in the right place to have their heads examined.

Goldfish Woman sees sign from God on cracker

Patti Burke eats two or three pounds of Goldfish crackers in a week, one by one, looking for the saltiest of the snacks. But only once has she found a sign from God on a little orange cracker.

“When I picked this one up, I knew he was special,” the Melbourne, Fla., woman said of her Holy Week discovery. “He had a cross on him, and he had a crown circle up by his head. Something I’ve never seen before out of all the Goldfish I’ve eaten.”

It's not your typical tortilla. And now a local woman is calling it a miracle.

Lupe Rodriguez insists her tortilla has an image of the Virgin Mary on it.

I've been lurking for a long time, so... hi everyone! I just got activated today

Anyway, by the length of this thread, I have to say, WOW! That many people are convinced they see Jesus or Mary? Just shows how common "seeing what you want to see" is.

Hi Morwen - always nice to see another Australian.

This thread is testament to the strength of Pareidolia - especially amongst keen believers.
