The case for the beatification of Michael Jackson has been strengthened by the pop legend's appearance in a California tree stump - the first reported Jesus-like simulacrum of the Man Who Changed the Face of Music Forever™. Felix Garcia spotted the uncanny likeness of the Man Who Touched the Lives of Millions™ in a birch stump …
Allowing for calling a chap with a chainsaw a tree surgeon
the only similarities I can see is that the surgeon has been at it and it looks like it's suffered severe burns.
I guess you had to be there.
There's nothing in that pic that looks remotely human to me..........oh, wait.........no, even Jackson looked a bit human if you turn a pic of him sideways and squint at it for a while.
It's got two eyes and a largish mouth, and the nose has been slashed to the point of non-recognition. Must be him...
I don't give the poor tree three days to live, with eBay and souvenier-hunting in full swing.
He's moved on
literally. Only a stick man is shown on the tree stump now - stick man/tree stump - geddit ?
It looks like a tree with the branch cut off to me. I can't see any simulcrum, jacksonesque or otherwise, in that photo.
Nothing like him!
It looks more like Keanu Reeves to me. Only with more acting ability!
I don’t see it. But Michel, if you’re in there, take a bough.
Personally, I think they’re barking. Up the wrong tree. Bunch of saps. I’ll leaf it out now.
It looks exactly like him, but only if you squint and look at the stumpo upside down. Then think of St Mike (The King of Pop) just before he died, and try and look "through" the stump so your about to go cross eyed.
Paris, she loves a good stump.
Nope - all I see is a cat's bum. Or at a stretch Gene Simmons' hair.
These apparitions do occur. I once saw George W Bush in a lump of dog crap. Oh, sorry, it really was George W Bush.
Paris, 'cause I see her in everything.
Looks more like a Vagoo to me.
Though that probably says more about my state of mind than anything.
Paris, well, go figure it out
Looks more like Gary Glitter
I saw Gene Simmons too! Does that mean he's dead?
The only resemblance..
..is they are both planks.
It looks like Claire Short
Looks more like a Doug Zass to me.
Now if one of the branches wore a single white glove, *then* I'd be convinced.
No doubt about it, thats Gary Glitter.
An omen mabey?
How long to get a good image of Jackson
Jesus has been at it for a lot longer and most of his appearances in wood/toast/mirrors/etc look poor. MJ wasn't even cold when he did that one...
Both the observer and the recently departed seem to have used them...
...looks like a woman giving birth..and with that image in your mind, I leave
I might be convinced...
.. that it's MJ, if the tree was made of plastic.
Title says it all.
that's the userfriendly.org Dust Puppy, very clearly!
Do the comments of the people in that video. Remind anyone of the "Miss Teen American video"
There is a reason why everyone thinks they are missing various brain cells.
Remember, all the loops in America are here because Europe sent all their loops here over the course of two or three centuries. Thank the gods that slowed to a trickle before Bill Oddie reached his majority.
Pablo nailed it
Pablo Francisco nailed it when he said Hispanics see the images of icons in everything...
"Move the rice, move the beans... IT IS MARIA!!!"
danced the moonwalk
That's not Jesus.
The first one is an alien, and the second one is Cthulhu. As for the actual topic of this article... that's a tree. I don't see anything remotely unusual about it.
I expect someone will get to the root of the matter without branching out. I almost twigged it.
Is this supposed to a full-face wooden portrait (as in real-life)? Or, as someone else said, looking like a Lowry matchstick man. Now that I CAN see!
You had me fooled there for a while but then I smacked my head again a brick wall a few times till I felt dizzy and looked at it again and it occured to me that yes, Yes it does look like a piss stain on a tree.
What? He slept with kiddies in his bed surely one of them wet himself with laughter when he tried to come onto them.....
@P Saunders - You got it wrong mate, supposed to be:
/Paris, because I see everything *IN* her,
It's a Wookie
Or a koala.
Re: Jesus never.
Are you crazy? Jesus invented the moonwalk. If it exists, Jesus invented it.
Oh yeah the tree, I mustn't have a fertile enough imagination to do this visions of the holy/famous thing, I can only see some dead wood.
Michael means more to me than Jesus, too.
I can't stand either of them though.
I can stand her.
In poor taste
Alright, you don't have a very high opinion of MJ. Fine. He's dead. Let him rest.
ONE PLANK RESEMBLES ANOTHER
There, I've said it.
Looks more like a severe case of someone trying desperately to 'crimp one off'.
Yep, now I see it....Shurely Shome Mishtake. Should be 'chimp one off'
I'll be in the Bubble bath if anyone wants me for a thriller. Yep, I'm bad.
