Jesus appears in a shower

December 30, 2013 • 2:24 pm

This shower (not a staged phot!o) is bound to become a relic, and were I the reader who sent it, Rik Gern, I’d be prepared to be inundated by Catholics. There’s money to be made!

Gern’s caption for this photo is “Jebus is washing you.”


Gern, by the way, was the owner of Kitt E. Katt, the subject of two posts called “Stray cat: a love story” (here and here).

    1. Yeah. I can’t see Big J either.

      I can just make out a vague cartoonish resemblance to a stylised face. But nothing pareidolic (if that’s a word).

      1. Is say that’s where the humor comes from. All those jesuses and virgins usually appear so that interpretation as even just a generic face is somewhat of a stretch.

        I see this as a reductio.

          1. I’m pretty sure older autocorrects would’ve inserted an apostrophe between “I” and “d”, rather than “correcting” to “is”.

            Not to mention, “id” is a word.

            I suppose it could be that the programmers thought the likelihood that someone meant “id” rather than “is” is pretty low.

              1. My auto-correct still has problems with oish. It recommends posh or push. After 3 letters ois… It recommends pis or iOS. Oy vey!

    1. Yeah, I’m pretty sure I read an interview with Chris Evans where he said exactly that…

      (More seriously, excellent sketch. I’ve never seen it before, so thanks for the chuckle! ๐Ÿ™‚ )

  1. So ethnocentric! Even supposing Heyzeus was real, the people from the part of the world he came from didn’t look anything like that!

    I’m thinking something more like blue tile.

      1. Ohhhh shit! Which one? His mom or his girlfriend? Uh oh. What if they were the same person?! No wonder christians are so kinky!

        Time for a new book in the Davinci code saga.

        1. Must be his mom…. she always wore blue or white. The other Mary wore red, didn’t she? ๐Ÿ˜‰ That’s one way to tell women apart, by their fashion sense, notwithstanding the head to toe blue sack.

  2. I guess I don’t quite get it?? But I do you Mane and Tail on my water spaniels, does that make them blessed?

    Hey to Hill & Emma!

    1. But look at the shadow – it’s the devil. The devil is coming for Jesus…and he’s wearing a cool bad guy cape!

    1. Yup, it’s horse shampoo–works great on people too! I’ve been using it for over 30 years, but then, I also have oats for breakfast every morning.

      For those who can’t see the image, think of
      it as a Jesus in the style of Homer Simpson. As Musical Beef said up at comment #3, it’s a “reductio”. (I’d never seen that word before, but I looked it up and it fits perfectly.)

  3. A couple years ago we were left with no hot water for three days. I had no choice but to heat water on the stove and fill a pitcher to use to bathe over the tub. And as I did I would shout out that I was bathing like Jesus did in his time, and that I felt I was one with Jesus. My wife and son were amused. This is another way of bathing with Jesus.
