If the flesh of Christ tasted this good when I was a child, I might never have given up communion.

Also good to know the body of Christ has 0% trans-fats. That Jesus is always thinking about the welfare of others...

Looks sort of like Bach playing the organ naked to me (with his lower legs obscure by the organ bench). I can't say I find that particularly inspirational, even as an organist.

Frito-Lay should come out with a line of snacks that resemble deities and saints. How about Guadalupe Chips?

That was always the goal of Jesus. He came, he died, he rose just to come back again as a Cheeto. This is why I became a Christian and why I am addicted to Cheeto's.
Are those the Cheeto's with chili because they are much better with chili.

Dude, that's not Jesus. It's George C. Scott as a fetus.

Posted by Natalie | March 23, 2008 11:56 AM

No, it's the Star Child from 2001. Quick, somebody get it over to Norwescon. (Gee, do you think this could have something to do with Arthur C. Clarke dying?)

Naw, it's really Joseph Merrick, AKA "The Elephant Man".

17 years of religious education, and no one mentioned that Jesus looked like a partially formed fetus covered in orange dust.

JT Continental wins this one! Brilliant comment JT. Just the right amout of postmodern snark with a little traditional irony. Very well done.

Check this out from Dan, the master of snark.

But wait! Taking out Saddam means dropping bombs, and dropping bombs only creates more terrorists!

That's the lefty argument du jour, and a lot of squish-brains are falling for it, but it's not an argument that the historical record supports. The United States dropped a hell of a lot of bombs on Serbia, Panama, Grenada, Vietnam, Germany, Japan, and Italy. If dropping bombs creates terrorists, where are all the German terrorists? Or the Italian terrorists? Or the Vietnamese terrorists?

@12 eat your heart out Bill Kristol.

Looks to me like the Toxic Avenger has risen.

Over weight youth paster eats crap food and sees Jesus. "They" hate us for good reason.

And behold, on the night He was betrayed, the Lord took the Cheetos and gave them to His disciples saying, "This is my body, given to you..."

Posted by RainMan | March 23, 2008 1:07 PM

I love licking Jesus off my fingers afterwards.

Posted by Sassmarm | March 23, 2008 1:20 PM

Looks like an aborted fetus after a trip through the deep fryer. Yum!

Posted by HL | March 23, 2008 1:49 PM

you guys, seriously, it's a hippopotamus. you just have to rotate your head...a little...and sort of squint...yeah, there it is...jesus my ass.

Posted by douglas | March 23, 2008 1:55 PM

It looks more like Che Guevara.

Posted by Jay | March 23, 2008 1:55 PM

Of course, is there really a difference at this point?

Posted by Jay | March 23, 2008 2:03 PM

I don't see it.

It's Britney's clit. And she wants it back. Now, bitch.

i heard this is Britney's new god on which is a dating site for interracial singles. maybe that's right.

When the U.S. resorts to Dresden-style "scortched earth" carpet bombing, believe me, there won't be more than a handful of "terrorists" (or native insurgents, depending on your POV) left.

Of course, there won't be many civilians left either, but if that's what floats your boat...

Posted by COMTE | March 23, 2008 6:31 PM

notice the lack of uniform orange that ALL cheetos have. looks like some of the flock have been lickin the Savior. or maybe that cheeto has godawful psoriasis...

Posted by bjank | March 23, 2008 6:38 PM


It reminds me of a stormtrooper. Jesus? Not so much.

Posted by Dolphin | March 23, 2008 7:08 PM

It's refreshing to hear from some religious folks with a sense of humor, who understand that they can draw a visual association without actually finding some holy message from God in it.

Posted by Ivan Cockrum | March 23, 2008 9:07 PM

Is it just me or does Jesus seem to have taken the form of a dog... or maybe a sheep?

Posted by SDizzle | March 24, 2008 8:06 AM

My, Jesus! What big feet you have!

Posted by sorryroger | March 24, 2008 8:31 AM

C'mon, it looks like Jebedihah springfield

Posted by Michael | March 24, 2008 8:32 AM

How do they know it's not really Jesus himself?

Posted by GS | March 24, 2008 9:36 AM

Moses handed down God's law against graven images but should have included a rider for fried and baked images as well.

Posted by inkweary | March 24, 2008 11:40 AM

I always thought Jesus looked like a Cheeto. Sounds wierd that they see it the other way 'round.
