Oh say, can you see Virgin Mary in a taco, baby?

Sorry, it’s a tortilla:

While heating up some tortillas Tuesday afternoon, a mother in Starr County, Texas, says she was surprised when some unexpected visitors turned up in her kitchen — the Virgin Mary and the Baby Jesus.

Melinda Solis told ValleyCentral.com she was warming up flour tortillas for her sons after school when her mother pointed out a large brown mark on one of the tortillas that looked like an iconic image of the religious figures.

Solis says she plans to save the tortilla — but the mother of four isn’t sure yet whether she’ll ask a priest to look at it.

Personally, I like the image I found in my own french toast once, Gandalf giving Frodo the one ring:

Point being, human beings are very good at seeing things that aren’t really there. And people are also very good at creating news stories where there’s nothing newsworthy to report…
