Virgin Mary in a pot

This story was all over the news in LA today. Oxnard woman discovers possible Virgin Mary Image.

Maria Froilana Esquivel of Oxnard was emptying a large silver pot filled with corn that she had prepared for her family last week when she noticed a bronze-colored image.

Family and friends were quick to weigh in, saying the mark resembled iconic depictions of the Virgin Mary with sloped shoulders, tilted head and draped clothing. They declared it a holy image.

Translation: Maria tempered part of a pot while cooking corn causing it to discolor. Her overactive imagination and religious predisposition to accept the incredible as plausible lead her to imagine a resemblance to the Virgin Mary. See for yourself.

Good grief, she built a friggen shrine to it. What idiots.
