Jesus and his Mom Mary have been seen on toast and on other edibles, but now they have been spotted on a tree in Polk City, Iowa, which has now become a tourist attraction.

[su_center_ad]Jesus and Mary decided to make an appearance in a small town in Iowa to say, “Sup world?”

KCTV reports that there are some people who say they see the Virgin Mary growing right out of the tree’s trunk.

You know how she is.

The shape is about six-feet-high and people have been leaving flowers there in honor of Mary who is totally not there.

However, there are others who say they don’t see the Virgin Mary – but they do see Jesus.

But wait! There’s another group of people who believe the image actually resembles Mary holding baby Jesus.

It’s not clear when people started noticing the tree or who owns the land it stands on. And the tree totally does not look like someone carved a figure out of it (wink wink).

God works in mysterious ways but He’s just not that obvious.  Who knew that He’s a tree hugger? Not me.

        Now we know where all that religious poop comes from.

    The obvious explanation is that someone carved it, but naturally, the gullible believers jump to the conclusion that the source is divine. How desperate to have something to believe in are you that you pick this?

    Looks like my mother in law…I guess that makes me Mary Magdalene . There will be a donation box attached to the trunk ASAP.

    It’s a sign from our Lord John Cleese that climate denier Iowa Senator-elect Joni Ernst is in league with Beelzebub!

    • Carla Akins November 16th, 2014 at 1:49 pm

      That would be hilarious if Ernst wasn’t really in league with Beelzebub.

    Looks more like Osama Bin Laden. I prefer the image of the true God – the Flying Spaghetti Monster (Sauce be upon him) – who is immortalized in this miraculous revelation:

    I wouldn’t say it has been carved, more like rot from damage when a branch broke off. Typical of the hyper religious to find icons and idols in everything they look at, even in a diseased tree trunk. Deluded, misguided and ill informed cretins.

    An image of Larry King appeared on my maple tree. The next day it morphed into Eric Estrada.

    • Hirightnow November 16th, 2014 at 11:45 am

      You’ve been hanging out by the meat smoker too long; you’re starting to see Maple CHiPS…

    I looked closely. Are you sure that’s not Katherine Heigl? She’s making a return from the dead, too.

    Oh look, tolerant open minded liberals.

    • Larry Schmitt November 16th, 2014 at 1:11 pm

      Why don’t you go do what your avatar suggests?

  12. KB723 November 16th, 2014 at 1:40 pm

    She’s smokin’ a cigarette???

    • Carla Akins November 16th, 2014 at 1:46 pm

      Oh, the inappropriate jokes that go with that question….

      • KB723 November 16th, 2014 at 1:50 pm

        Tell me one…. =)
