back to article Welsh mum amazed by Marmite Messiah

Aficionados of Jesus simulacra can add a Marmite lid to the list of places the Son of God has chosen to manifest, following a Welsh woman's discovery of the Messiah's likeness formed from the delicious tar-based spread. Claire Allen, 36, spotted the astonishing face as she was poised to poison son Robbie, 4, with Marmite on …

Here we go again.

"“I often see Jesus’ face in a lot of things I do. And there are a few times I can think of when I’ve seen the face of Jesus in a window. But he’s never appeared in my food before.”

FFS.

I can't for the life of me think WHY it is always believers who "see" faces of Jesus in things. Wouldn't be anything to do with humans having a predisposition to see human faces in anything, twisted by sky-fairy worshippers to being their saviour.

Although I did do a shit that looked like Ronaldo the other day...

This story means nothing without evidence!

This story means nothing without photos! And the Welshy newspaper website has been downed by all the god seeking masses wishing to bestow their eyes on his holyness in all his marmity glory.

We demand pictures!

I sometimes see Jesus at the bottom of a beer glass. Usually around my 8th of the day.

Looks more like the Mekon to me. But then I'm not a loon, just a nerd.

Seriously though, why is god messing about with sub-Blane magic tricks when there are so many other things omnipotence could be sorting out? You know, minor things like war, famine, Britain's Got Talent?

excuse me ??

why as of late have we had multi posts on the same article !!

especially as trivial as this one !!

if a story is good enough to be re-posted why not just bump the original up again

It is getting annoying re-reading stuff.

Another "appearance" in Texas

Texas couple finds Jesus in a Cheeto

DALLAS - A Dallas couple says they found Jesus in a cheese snack.

Dan and Sarah Bell bought a bag of Cheetos at a gas station.

"I had eaten most of the ones out of my hand and this one was still left laying there and I said 'Oh my gosh, look at this! It really looks like a person in a robe praying,'" Sarah Bell said.

She showed her husband.

"I just looked over and I went wow! It does look like... it looks like a praying Jesus," Dan Bell said.

The couple nicknamed it "Cheesus". They said they believe it's a reminder of blessings from God.

"But primarily I think it's a funny Cheeto," Sarah Bell added

"I often see Jesus’ face in a lot of things I do"

Almighty Jah is trying to tell this lady something. I wonder what it could be? My advice to all: you can only ignore prophetic truths like this for so long.

Also, I seem to remember seeing The First Coming represented in toast format on this site in the not so distant past. Could these two events be related?

Think about it. Browned Hovis. Marmite. In the Shape of the Face of the Son of God. A New religious festival is henceforth born: Yeaster. THE COMMERCIAL POSSIBILITIES ARE AVAILABLE FOR NEAR LIMITLESS EXPLOITATION.

Get To It, People.

A great reason to become religious. Because let's face it, if Jesus wants to make his presence known, he's going to do it through Marmite.

The only surprise here is that they haven't (yet) tried to sell the lid on eBay.

" she was poised to poison son Robbie, 4, with Marmite on toast"

I guess we know not what side of the Marmite line (why does that sound rude?) Lester Haines is on, then.

And by the way, of all these "I found an image of Jesus in (insert whatever here)", this is the least Jesus-y of the lot. Doesn't even look like a face.

“I just looked at it and immediately thought, that’s Jesus Christ.

“It wasn’t a new jar, but I’d never noticed that before.”

Well when I looked it looked more like the lid off a marmite jar with some marmite on it

Jesus Christ

At least that was my response. Either shes a canny operator and will sell this so some bible bashing sucker on ebay for a small fortune, or more likely , shes just another credulous inbred village idiot with zero concept of the idea of random chance producing vaguely face like patterns. With people this dumb in the population is it any wonder that religion gets such a toehold in all civilisations?

but being such a scynic if it does look like the holy one, someones put it into photo shop and rotate/twisted it slightly

Still i'd rather have ol JC in my marmite lid than mould

Best you pretend to be religious love, it's the only way you can get away with seeing things, and listening to voices that aren't there without getting locked up!

Come on, kiddiwinks, how's about a show of thumbs for or not for Marmite?

I like Marmite, but it's got to be suitably thinly spread and marbled with the butter and not overwhelming.

Glad to see the Register is spreading the good news.

Actually, according to the law of averages, someone on the lookout for these kind of images has probably seen it in a pile of dog poo. I guess it would be unlikely they'd call the local rag for that though.

We're really good

at seeing faces in things aren't we.

Just one of the optimisations in the human brain - dedicated facial recognition circuits mean that often we get a "face" signal for really weak images.

I'll give it a cautionary thumbs up since it is tolerable that way. Though my anti marmite bias is still there since I was tricked into eating it the first time.
