Pick enough mangoes and anything can happen. I'm banking on a bored Hispanic field picker.

Icon215 Grounds for hope in a stained coffee mug

Jerry Stolfi houses Jesus above his kitchen's stovetop exhaust fan, inside a drab brown cupboard he calls a shrine.

"I hope he doesn't get lonely in there, you know?" says Stolfi, 49.

"He" is the coffee stain, on a mason jar drinking mug, in which Stolfi sees a bearded image of Jesus Christ bearing a crown of thorns.

Default Virgin Mary in a window. Do you see what they see?

Here we go again.

Another holy sighting.

This time, Greg and Debbie Sapp see an image of the Virgin Mary in the deposits likely left by condensation on a broken window.

Default School's Cook Sees Virgin Mary In Turkey

MALDEN, Mass. -- Every Monday, Rossana D'Agostino does the same thing to prep for Malden High School's Thursday lunch: She goes into the freezer, slices open the plastic casings and thaws the turkeys. But this Monday was different.

Bow down to the power that is Lemmy! All hail, the Ace of Spades!

The image in the quartz is cool, although it looks vaguely male to me. Still - cool!

Default Pilgrims flock to tree 'showing image of Virgin Mary' in Limerick

It has been 14 years since her last major apparition in Ireland but the Virgin Mary is back and this time in the lowly form of a tree stump in Limerick.

To the dismay of local Catholic church leaders, the freshly severed stump, with its supposed image of Our Lady, is rapidly becoming the focus of pilgrims. The last time that Ireland experienced anything similar was during its last recession in 1985, when a “moving” statue drew tens of thousands to Ballinspittle, Co Cork.

You beat me to it.
The Cork Examiner has this.
It'll be a good recession buster for the town allright.

Quote:
Seamus Hogan, who runs a shop in the town, said there already has been a business spin-off.
"Derek Downes who runs Eurospar told me yesterday was the busiest Wednesday he’s had in 12 months," he said.
You can't beat an auld religeous sighting to bring the hordes out.
IRC the Ballinspittle one well, as the following summer we holidayed in Kinsale, which is nearby. The position of the statue was such that if you looked at it at evening time, the setting sun would blind you. I remember looking at for a few minutes and figured I'd be able to see allsorts of distractions in my eyes.

Builder Oliver Bellerby discovered this incredible image of Jesus in a baking tray.

Oliver spotted the perfectly formed face of Christ in browned fat after cooking a burger for a dinner.
