Friday funny: another Jesus sighting (but with a twist)

A twist of Japanese roll cake:

Usually, Jesus limits his food-based appearances to grilled cheese and Cheetos in certain—shall we say—conservative areas of North America, but it seems like he is making inroads to Asian pastries with an appearance in a dessert offered by Japan’s popular Komeda Coffee chain. And not just that, he decided to present as a famous recent incarnation: the monkey-faced botched restoration of Ecce Homo!

For those who need the reminder, an elderly woman tried to touch up a classic fresco of Jesus with amusing results.

Ms. Giménez said she had worked on the fresco using a 10-year-old picture of it, but she eventually left Jesus with a half-beard and, some say, a monkeylike appearance.

And it will live on as a meme for as long as the internet can remember.
