The face of — in the dirt!

June 5, 2009 • 9:55 am

I had my first “supernatural” experience this morning.  While walking to work, I saw this pattern in the dirt at the bottom of the steps up to my building.  I stopped dead and took a photo.  Now it can’t be the face of Jesus because there are no whiskers (as we all know, Jesus had a beard), so who is it?  To me it looks like Virginia Woolf.


Woolf right

Jesus appears in Marmite

A little midweek humor from the BBC, although, of course, the family who found the saviour’s image in vegetable goo doesn’t think it’s funny at all.


“We’ve had a tough couple of months; my mum’s been really ill and it’s comforting to think that if he is there, he’s watching over us.”

Family sees Jesus image in Marmite

It may not be immediately obvious to everyone, but one family are convinced that they can see the face of Jesus on the lid of a jar of Marmite.

Claire Allen, 36, said she was the first to notice the image on the underside of the lid as she was putting the yeast spread on her son’s toast.

Her husband Gareth, 37, said he could not believe his eyes when he saw it.

Mr Allen, of Ystrad, Rhondda, said: “The kids are still eating it, but we kept the lid.”

He explained: “Claire saw it first and called her dad to come and take a photo of it.

“When I first looked at it I wasn’t sure, but when I moved it away from me it started coming out. I thought yeah, she’s right – that’s the image of Jesus.

Mrs Allen said her 14-year-old son Jamie had also remarked on the likeness.

She told the South Wales Echo: “Straight away Jamie said ‘that looks like God’, and my other boys (Robbie, four, and Tomas, 11) even said they could see a face.

“People might think I’m nuts, but I like to think it’s Jesus looking out for us.”
