Dumbass Idea of the Week

Well apparently there's a new holy relic to behold.  A couple thinks that the face of Jesus was imprinted on a receipt of theirs.

At least it wasn't a grilled cheese sandwich, I suppose.

Ha here's the quote:

"There's tons of people who will say, 'Oh, we're in the Bible Belt,' but here's my question to the doubters, who else has the power to put their face on a check-out receipt but Jesus."

Well, apparently this particular cash register was imbued with the power of Christ . . . or it was having a toner issue.

If Jesus was trying to reveal his presence to people, it's curious as to why he chooses such mundane things to be his medium.

Looks more like a young Charles Manson!


Harrison said...

Maybe his bill was so large he shouted "Jesus Christ" and WHAM he appeared?

A lawyer from Manila told me that there was a case of a nun who had a bad cold and the resulting - i think you guys call it a booger (we just call it snot) was in the shape of JC and she wanted to preserve it - the only problem was that it was on the counter of a bank - they actually argued it in a court and cleaning the top was banned during the inquiry. In the end before a response was given the local Deacon arrived, took a look and grabbed a cloth and wiped it away. Case dismissed!

I was at the cinema eating a $5.00box of Junior Mints, that used to cost a nickel back when I was a youth, and in one of the Junior Mints I saw the likeness of Junior Walker and the All Stars. And then last year I was having dinner at The Four seasons restaurant in New York City and I saw a likeness of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons in my bowl of whalers bisque. So then, I ask you who am I to deny anyone's claim of seeing a vision of the holy family in a stained glass window in Holy Family Church, eh? Open your hearts and minds and share the faith of all those nuts wandering the earth in search of a vision. Of course those seeing a vision of Mohammed in their mashed potatoes better keep their heads about them and keep it to themselves.

Harrison said...

Peter... those weren't Junior Mints you were popping...

Jack Camwell said...

Haha, very humorous sentiments from all.

Peter: I don't doubt that they see the image of Jesus, or even that the image does resemble a facial structure that people identify as Jesus, but there is no miracle at play here.

I mean, no one actually has any clue what he looked like, so the image could just be that of a hobo in dire need of a hair cut.

"To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour. ... "

From Auguries of Innocence by William Blake

To see the Christ in coffee grounds,
Or on a slice of moldy bread,
Or in the chocolate of Peter Paul Mounds,
Or on an old man's grizzled head

What harm is there to look for Him
In these unlikely places
The dullest minds become less dim
When hope shines in their gaping faces.

Why opt so quickly for derision
When comfort you deny
To those so wounded by division
When gentleness their tears could dry?

Well placed FreeThinke.

I don't know why I ridicule them. Perhaps it's because I lost any real hope for humanity a long time ago and I'm envious of them.
