Jesus found on Walmart receipt

An engaged couple in Anderson County says a shadowy image that turned up on a receipt from Walmart looks like the face of Jesus. Jacob Simmons and his fiancee, Gentry Lee Sutherland, said they bought some pictures from Walmart on Sunday, June 12. The following Wednesday, the couple had just come home from a church service when Simmons spotted the receipt on the floor of Sutherland's apartment.



He says the receipt had changed. "I was leaving the kitchen and I just looked on the floor, and it was like it was looking at me," Simmons said. A dark grey mark on the receipt seems to show two eyes, a nose and a mouth in a thickly bearded face.

"Then the more you look at it, the more it looked like Jesus, and it was just shocking, breathtaking," Simmons said. The couple said the image seemed to answer a question they had just been asked at church.

"We had a message on knowing God, abiding in him," Sutherland said. "(The preacher asked) 'If you know God, would you recognize him if you saw him?'" The couple says they did nothing to make the face appear on the receipt. "We just feel like it's a blessing that God showed it to us and opened our eyes. And we just feel like we should share the blessing God gave to us to everybody else," Sutherland said.

Looks more like the shrunken head of some luckless explorer.

I'm thinking it's the iconic National Geographic photo of the young Afghan girl (with the amazing eyes).

But then the face is upside down. Maybe it's someone from Australia.

That's not Jesus, it's John Lennon.
I know that, because I just saw a picture of Jesus on the internet, and he doesn't wear glasses.

goo goo ga joob!

But no! Wait, it's not Lennon- it's Osama Bin Laden!

Given that most receipts are printed on thermal paper, you can make any image you like with a hot object. Leave a receipt on the dashboard of a hot car or in your shirt pocket when you iron it and it'll turn dark. I'll be expecting pictures of cthulhu miraculously appearing on receipts here soon.
