Out of the Frying Pan…

An image of Jesus has appeared in a frying pan in Lancashire, England as reported in the Daily Telegraph. Shouldn’t it have been St Francis the fryer? Geddit?? Feel free to include any further bad puns regarding this story in the combox.

    Well, it's better than the Nutella lid….I guess part of why people make a big deal about these things is that often, they really were surprised to see anything encouraging happen in their lives at that moment. So they tend to tell people they know, and the people they know also tend to need the unexpected lift, and gradually it goes viral. It's a lot of the same process as a happy email poem or joke.With this guy, you can see why he took it as God signing his work. (We had a guy fall asleep in our building who was frying chicken, and it was pretty scary, all the smoke.) Heck, in this case, it might have been.

    I can't wait for Todd's next report, which is bound to include something like: "I've always wanted to know what Jesus looked like, and WOW! now we KNOW!!"BTW, isn't that Todd's nephew holding the famous frying pan?

    Poeple love this stuff; you can believe it or not. Either way nothing will be required of you.

    These people are so gullible, aren't they.. They'll be telling us God used a dumb ass to speak to a foolish prophet next! And we all know He only reveals Himself through books that carry the imprimatur and EWTN religious programmes, these days.Thank God we are intellectual Catholics. I mean, can you seriously imagine a Doctor of the Church suggesting we look for God amidst pots and pans……..

    Given the state of the pan, it seems like the result of an intense seer.

    Further proof that we are only able to see God after a good burning at the steak.

    This can go with the image of Our Lady on a griddle in Baja California:http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/30508304/

    It's funny, but the one holding the frying-pan doesn't LOOK like a chipmunk.

    In a frying pan? Then it can't be Jesus, but St. Vitus (who suffered martyrdom in a kettle of boiling oil).

    Why would anyone question this? Jesus has always reached out to the simmer.://theologygeek.blogspot.com
