I didn’t panic,” [Mary Jo] Coady told the Herald. “I was carrying the laundry, looked down at the iron and there was the image of Jesus. I picked it up and asked my daughters to take a look at it to make sure I wasn’t crazy.”…

My faith was down, but seeing this made me think, wow, Jesus is there.”

To me, it looks more like René Descartes. But I’m probably just in denial.

Thanks, K B

    There is this species of grab, that’s native to Japan. And it’s shell is in the shape of a human face (oriental). It’s said that his happened as fishermen tended to throw back the crabs that most liked like their beloved emperor. And only kept those that didn’t. So those were the most successful at breeding. And the features on the shells, were refined even more, over the centuries. Until now, when ALL the crabs caught there, have this face shaped shell. So they’re eaten anyway.

    That’s how it is with the face of Jesus or Mary, appearing on or in things. People only take notice of these scorch marks. And ignore all the others that didn’t look like anything “holy”. And BTW, there are so many depiction of Jesus, over the centuries, with either long or short hair. How can anyone know which is the correct one to look for in a scorch mark?

    Last night before going to bed I went to take a dump. It was smoother than usual, and when I went for the paper I thought I heard a choir of angels. So after the wipe I couldn’t resist and I took a quick look. Lo and behold the face of Jesus our lord and savior was looking out at me from inside the ivory throne. I was so startled I flushed straight away. From now on I’ll keep a camera in the crapper.

    If you get an iron with a Teflon bottom, you never get images on the bottom of the iron.

    Home Tip number 47
    Scorch marks on irons are easily handled with some steel wool and a little elbow grease.

  12. The Monster's Lawyer says:

    In a related stroy: Worshipers of the Holy Iron of MaryJo received second and third degree burns when the holy relic unexpectedly emitted a hot gas from the many eye holes that appear around the image. Some believe that the scorching is a sign that they should take the wrinkles out of their lives. Many ironites had burns to the lips when the icon unexpectedly heated up as they kissed the image. Said one enthusiastic follower, “He’s hot.”

    Why would anyone panic from looking at a stain on their iron? I think this woman is a few beads short of a rosary. 🙂
