"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

And they call him Cheesus...

From the CBS station in the Dallas/Fort Worth area...

"Dallas Couple Sees Jesus Inside Cheese Snack

Beth Wagner
DALLAS (CBS 11 News) ―Many people have seen and heard about the likeness of Jesus turning up in unlikely places. Now, one North Texas family says they found Jesus in a cheese snack.

Dan Bell found his vision of Jesus last week at the gas station. "We were leaving town. I stopped by to fill up with gas and bought some snacks."

Inside a 99-cent bag of Cheetos brand cheese snacks, Dan and his wife Sara found something unique.

Sara recalls the discovery. "I was putting them in my hand and I had eaten most of the ones in my hand, and one was left lying there. And I said, 'Oh my gosh, look at this. It really looks like a person in a robe praying.'"

Dan looked over. "I said, 'Wow, it does look like a praying Jesus.'"

The couple nicknamed it "Cheesus."

"Cheesus" is about two inches tall. Despite missing a right arm, the Bells see a body, hair, robe and even a tiny face.

They say it is a reminder of their blessings from God; but primarily they think it's a funny Cheeto.

Various incarnations of "Cheesus" have shown up before; in Houston, Missouri and on the internet site YouTube.

The Bells' Cheeto ended up on the front page of the Preston Hollow newspaper. The big question, what to do with it now?

Dan says his first reaction was, "Let's put this on eBay. How much do you think we should ask for it? It could be 25 cents, could be 25 dollars. If it's only 25 cents, we're just going to eat it."

For now, they are keeping "Cheesus" in a plastic box."

I thought the whole thing was hysterical. I mean its odd enough to see Jesus in your food but to call it "Cheesus"....Bwahahahahahahahahaha! And, when I read "How much do you think we should ask for it? It could be 25 cents, could be 25 dollars. If it's only 25 cents, we're just going to eat it." Yeah, first you see the Lord in it and then you eat it. You simply can NOT imagine comedy this bizarrely hysterical. Do you think its in the cheese? After all, its not that long ago that the Virgin Mary appeared to us in a grilled cheese sandwich. *See, we've had it wrong for years. When we take communion, its not the bread we should be eating (avoid the carbs). We should be eating cheese (yay fatty goodness).

*I know, I know, I'm probably riding the direct elevator to hell for this one but it was too funny not to say.

Ok, I'm laughing hysterically at the last line about the direct elevator to hell. Honey I'm sure I'm right there with you.
My first though when I read this was sell it on ebay. Cause you know there has got to be some goofy person out there that's willing to pay hundreds for it.
I love it. Cheesus.
