On the Rag: Jesus Appears to Massachusetts Man.. on a Towel

A man from Massachusetts is convinced that he’s been given a sign from on high thanks to the mysterious appearance of Jesus.. on a drop cloth.

“My heart went a million miles an hour. I was hyperventilating,” Brian Krantz, told WDH News. “A crown or a halo. Two eyes. Mustache, nose, there’s the chin, jaw line. His right arm out like that with cloths he was buried in hanging down,” said Krantz.


The strange image of Christ appeared on a drop cloth used by Krantz to spray paint the shutters on his house four years ago, and as a general purpose rag dozens of times since before he noticed the “miracle”, an appearance that he doesn’t believe is a coincidence.


“I’m not sure why, but everybody needs some hope in life. And I hope that this is something that will give him hope,” said Julie Anne Aloise, Krantz’s girlfriend.

Krantz said that he plans to frame the cloth and hang it in his home.

    Looks like a cowboy to me, even has a bandana. Not sure if Jesus sported the 1970’s porno mustache or not.

    How come nobody ever finds Hitler in their grilled cheese sandwich? Ok bad joke I know but seriously a face can be anyone. Why does it ALWAYS have to be Jesus and nobody else? We don’t even know what he really looked like. Unless he really was an alien, then he didn’t look like a light skinned European in the middle east!

    Looks more like Jeff Dunham’s puppet Jose Jalapeno (on a steek): http://jeffdunham.wikia.com/wiki/Jos%C3%A9_Jalapeno_on_a_Stick

    Or maybe the Futurama robot devil: http://futurama.wikia.com/wiki/Robot_Devil

    I’m not anti-religion, but this story is really stretching it. Coming soon to ebay.
