Yet another believing is seeing moment

Why does the media report these things? A while back I mentioned a woman who claimed she’d found shells on the beach looking like Jesus and Mary.

This time around, it’s a lump of what might be bone or shell that some claim looks like the Virgin Mary. They’ve put a picture up showing a sculpture’s impression of what Mary might have looked like in robes beside the lump that bears zero resemblance to figure in the sculpture. Zero.

Benedict is not very religious, so he hopes to pass the shell along to someone who is, for the right price of course. “I think I’m going to sell it. I think I’m going to have to, just to see how many people want it and I feel like some people would care about it more than I probably would.”

He’s already put listed it on eBay. The bidding opens at $24.99.

Oh, to live in a world where people don’t get Madonna Fever.

If I’d seen that thing wash up, I would have thought it looked like a fish with a bulbous nose, or maybe a polar bear’s head. Like so:

Yes, definitely a polar bear with the harsh arctic wind ruffling his neck fur. Actually it’s like the bunnyduck. Do you see a fish or a polar bear? Can you look at both at the same time? Do you get a headache trying?
