A few months back, I was mildly amused at a television program documenting food that seemed to look like Jesus and/or his mother Mary. When I learned (if it wasn’t a lie) that a grilled cheese sandwich with a likeness of Mary sold for $28,000 on Ebay, my amusement level raised to Moderate. Personally, I thought the woman on the sandwich looked more like a young Jane Russell, but either way, let’s just say nobody at our house eats a grilled cheese without it being inspected for some holy imagery first.
Seeing as how our school children are now singing praise ballads to our Commander-in-Chief, I wonder how long it will be until items with his image are considered pareidolia? Oh. yes. I. did. just fling that big word at you. It supposedly means, “the perception that an obscure image is significant.” In the case of religious pareidolia, one would see Jesus or Mary or the Pope in a burrito or tree bark or some other random thing. Or, if the current president-worship trend continues, Obama in a rock.
Just hang with me a sec. This is going somewhere.
My Boy Two ran home from school today yelling, “Mom! I found a rock that looks like Obama! Do you think we can sell it on Ebay?” Two is a little dramatic so I didn’t expect to see Barack in the rock but oh. Oh. It’s totally there. See what you think:
So what do y’all think? I’m pretty confident it looks as much like Obama as this toast looks like the Virgin Mary:
So now, to list BaRock or not to list BaRock…that is the question.
That is HI-LAR-IOUS……………….it does look like OBAMA!!!!!!!! hahahhaha
Sell it on Ebay~~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You’re killing me!
Just sit still a moment and see if your link goes around the globe faster than you can blink your eye.
Crazy, scary, the current Obama-worship trend.
And yes, YES, oh my GOSH, YES, I totally see him! It’s so crazy I’m sitting here thinking, “is she pulling me leg?” BaROCK? REALLY? What are the odds?
I’m such a dork. I just got it…. BaRock…..
If a grilled cheese can pull 28, 000, I’m thinking BaROCk is bring in some major moo-lah. Get ready for national news in your front yard!!!! hahahha
I’d totally list it!! lol! You probably won’t get much interest from Denmark though, it seems they weren’t too impressed by our “Barock star”.
so.. this is the first time i have visted my beloved aunts website… and i must say that it isnt what i expected.. and idk if i cant really see obama.. i see a person… ima laugh when you find out its a nasty old shrunken head! lol
Oh! You are cracking me up!! My hubby says hold onto it. At least it won’t spoil like the grilled cheese! BTW – we totally see the ears!!
Yeah, it definitely looks like him!
Lisa, that is stinking hilarious, and you are right, it looks just like him! Love you girlie!
Oh yea! Show me the money!!!
And yes……Mary sure does look a bit glamorous/Jane Russell-ish!
OMG, I busted out laughing at this! Way too funny! Yes, you so need to put it on Ebay!!! And remember who your friends are! :)
I once had a flaming hot cheeto that looked a hole lot like Rosie Perez, right down to the skimpy lil outfits she wear and all. I tried to take it into the West Main Guy and Pawn and they laughed at me like I was 2 sandwiches short of a picnic! I’m finna print off your blog and show him that he made a big mistake!
