Jesus fans were today queuing up to see the latest image of their idol that has been discovered in the icing on a Bun purchased from McCooey’s Café on Monaghan Street.
Newry Spud spoke to the owner of the Café Lianne McCooey:
“It’s been bedlam here since I tweeted the picture of Our Lord. I couldn’t believe it when I took the buns out of the oven and found the holy visage staring back at me. It’s uncanny”.
Ms McCooey has had to hire the Foresters Hall on the mall such is the demand from people to see the bun with people coming from all over the country to queue for up to 7 hours to have a chance of seeing, and taking a selfie with their Saviour.
“Obviously it’s an important moment in human history, and I want to bring Christians together at this time. But for those that can’t be here I have a range of commemorative holy relics on the McCooey’s Cafe Facebook page,” said Ms McCooey. “There is a very affordable mouse mat.”
Sceptics argue that the image may just be coincidence, a fortunate positioning of raisins around the central cherry “nose” or perhaps just a trick of the eye caused by light and shadow playing on the icing.
Others go further and assert that neither the manner of creation of the, nor the lighting conditions in which it is viewed can in anyway cause it to be a representation of Jesus Christ.
“It’s clearly an image of Elvis,” said one local.
