Face in the Shower Curtain

    A new member's name made me remember seeing this awhile back.

    "On November 4, 2003, I had a paranormal visitation.

    The day started off normally enough. I had woken up at quarter of 7, as usual, and staggered into the kitchen to make my daughter's lunch for school. After it was bundled up in the box, I wearily stumbled to her room, got her up, and gave her schoolclothes to change into. A seemingly normal autumn morning, with everything nice and natural... or so I thought. "

    continued...

    I do believe you're right! I saw that same apparition once at the bottom of an emptied bucket of greasy fried chicken. This is a prayer we say in the South when the good Colonel makes his holy vision known to us:

    Blessed be Saint Sanders,
    And blessed be his original recipe,
    and his sacred 11 secret herbs and spices.
    Amen.

    This reminds me of a Dilbert strip where Dogbert draws a smiley face in a peanut butter jar and declares it the face of Saint Ted. Hundreds flock to witness the miracle and look for other saints in the household.

    "I think I saw Elvis in the jello!"
    "Only the king moves like that!"

    LOL :rofl: :rofl:

    Speaking of images, what's that new avatar you've been sporting, Jimmy P?

    I got a little bored of my lil' fox just swishing his tail, so I thought I would have a little green blob. It may change again soon though so watch that space!!

    :rofl:
    When I was growing up, KFC was a staple of our diet. They fell out of favor with me when they discontinued those Lil' Bucket desserts.

    Jimmy P, I was tempted to paint your little fox animation black and white and send it to you to match your Chopnik Spraymaster title. :biggrin:

    Anyway, what were we talking about? Oh, yeah.. Lenin and shower curtains. (Darn this A.D.D.!!)

    When the space shuttle Challenger exploded during the launch phase back in 1986, there was a picture in the newspapers which showed an orange ball of fire plus two twisty smoke streamers left by the tumbling solid fuel boosters. I remember watching Trinity Broadcasting TV shortly after that event (some things never change!), and the host Paul Crouch held up a newpaper to the camera and pointed out that it looked like Satan's face, with the smoke streamers portraying the horns.

    If you do that, then I will make that my avatar again!! That would be so cool! :biggrin:

    Oh yeah, it just seems that much like the oversensitivity thread, people just see what they like to see. Mainly because they are stupid. :tongue2:

    send over the gif and I'll paint it up! :smile:

    so all this business about seeing patterns - is that how inkblot tests got started? Does it say something very different about our personalities or basic natures if I see Lenin in the shower curtain but you see Colonel Sanders?

    No, this just indicates which one of you is the hungriest at the moment.

    A somewhat related story: When I was a kid, and while out one night collecting the $5 a month for each customer on my paper route, I approached a somewhat dirty and lonely looking house - [insert loud echo followed by a scream!] a new customer. :uhh: It was just about dark outside when I parked my bike and walked up to the front door. As I approached the porch, directly ahead of me was a low, large, open window with a little puppy sitting on the ledge. It looked to be a Chihuahua, or a poodle, but it was not real large, it looked freindly, and this put me at ease. Just about then this cute little puppy growled in a deep loud voice followed by even louder and deeper bark. I about jumped out of my pants!!! I was looking at the head of a dog, not an entire dog.
