Jesus appears in a shower

This shower (not a staged phot!o) is bound to become a relic, and were I the reader who sent it, Rik Gern, I’d be prepared to be inundated by Catholics. There’s money to be made!

Gern’s caption for this photo is “Jebus is washing you.”

Jebus_Is_Washing_You

Gern, by the way, was the owner of Kitt E. Katt, the subject of two posts called “Stray cat: a love story” (here and here).

    Jesus is a Lubavitcher? Who knew?

      Thanks – this is from my childhood and gawd knows where it came from.

      Yeah. I can’t see Big J either.

      I can just make out a vague cartoonish resemblance to a stylised face. But nothing pareidolic (if that’s a word).

        But look there’s a devil in the shadow!

          looks like a shower curtain to me..

        Is say that’s where the humor comes from. All those jesuses and virgins usually appear so that interpretation as even just a generic face is somewhat of a stretch.

        I see this as a reductio.

          *I’d say*

          Am I being irrational or is iOS7 autocorrect worse than previous iterations?

          • Posted December 31, 2013 at 6:47 am | Permalink

            I think it’s the first version to route all autocorrect logic (and everything else) through Utah, and they haven’t yet worked out all the glitches.

            Cheers,

              That link…it’s nice to know somebody’s interested in me.

          • Posted December 31, 2013 at 7:47 am | Permalink

            I’m pretty sure older autocorrects would’ve inserted an apostrophe between “I” and “d”, rather than “correcting” to “is”.

            Not to mention, “id” is a word.

            I suppose it could be that the programmers thought the likelihood that someone meant “id” rather than “is” is pretty low.

              My phone learns as I go so it is getting better with swearing & contractions. :)

                My auto-correct still has problems with oish. It recommends posh or push. After 3 letters ois… It recommends pis or iOS. Oy vey!

              • Posted December 31, 2013 at 8:41 am | Permalink

                Mine learns, too, but I type “is” pretty frequently. I’d prefer it if it didn’t try to correct “i” and “d” to “is”.

    That looks to me like a devil with horns. I guess that says something about me. ;)

    Bed Bath & Beyond frottage is making a comeback. Shower curtain confessionals are in vogue with the Catholic fellowship rowing crew.

    Reminds me of this Armando Iannucci sketch

    • Posted December 30, 2013 at 3:05 pm | Permalink

      Yeah, I’m pretty sure I read an interview with Chris Evans where he said exactly that…

      (More seriously, excellent sketch. I’ve never seen it before, so thanks for the chuckle! :-) )

    Hey, even the messiah likes to keep fresh. Nuttin’ wrong with that!

      He’s not the messiah, he’s a very cleanly boy! With apologies to the Pythons.

    So ethnocentric! Even supposing Heyzeus was real, the people from the part of the world he came from didn’t look anything like that!

    I’m thinking something more like blue tile.

    • Posted December 31, 2013 at 7:02 am | Permalink

      But wait, wouldn’t that be Mary, in the ubiquitous blue hijab? ;)

        Ohhhh shit! Which one? His mom or his girlfriend? Uh oh. What if they were the same person?! No wonder christians are so kinky!

        Time for a new book in the Davinci code saga.

          Must be his mom…. she always wore blue or white. The other Mary wore red, didn’t she? ;) That’s one way to tell women apart, by their fashion sense, notwithstanding the head to toe blue sack.

    I guess I don’t quite get it?? But I do you Mane and Tail on my water spaniels, does that make them blessed?

    All I see is a shower, and I was brought up catholic so I’ve seen the non existent Jesus many times before.

    Hey, Guys who don’t get it… look closely at ze washrag!

      But look at the shadow – it’s the devil. The devil is coming for Jesus…and he’s wearing a cool bad guy cape!

      • Posted December 30, 2013 at 8:17 pm | Permalink

        Ah, yes, yes, I see the caped horned beastie now!

  17. Posted December 30, 2013 at 6:55 pm | Permalink

    It looks vaguely like my shower, and I hope both the devil and the baby jebus stay the hell out of mine.

    Is that horse shampoo??

    Lolz

    • Posted December 30, 2013 at 10:18 pm | Permalink

      Yup, it’s horse shampoo–works great on people too! I’ve been using it for over 30 years, but then, I also have oats for breakfast every morning.

      For those who can’t see the image, think of
      it as a Jesus in the style of Homer Simpson. As Musical Beef said up at comment #3, it’s a “reductio”. (I’d never seen that word before, but I looked it up and it fits perfectly.)

    • Posted December 31, 2013 at 6:48 am | Permalink

      Yup. Also works great for human hair, and for other mammals as well.

      The reviews at amazon are very positive.

    A couple years ago we were left with no hot water for three days. I had no choice but to heat water on the stove and fill a pitcher to use to bathe over the tub. And as I did I would shout out that I was bathing like Jesus did in his time, and that I felt I was one with Jesus. My wife and son were amused. This is another way of bathing with Jesus.

    Well, cleanliness is next to godliness. But I don’t see the likeness much.
