Nun Bun Fun

According to this article from the BBC, someone nicked this shellac-covered cinnamon bun with a "striking resemblance" to Mother Theresa. You know, my biggest problem with all this "Jesus in a pancake" stuff is that these holy images are so darn inaccurate. Can't they get some better rendering software on the Other Side? That thing doesn't look like Mother Theresa. It looks like the old woman in this optical illusion, or maybe the witch from Hansel and Gretel.

No wonder the poor woman wrote a letter asking them to cut it out. I wonder if she mentioned to them that her nose isn't the shape of a large potato, or that her eyes don't peer beadily from beneath her habit.

Just once I'd like to see the headline "Face of Jesus in Cheese Sandwich Turns Out To Be One of the ZZTop Guys. Never Mind."

Santa Claus moves his operation to Venice

Never again having to inform a sobbing elf family of another polar bear attack: priceless.
