Finding Jesus

When my out-of-town guests and I were planning out this weekend, I had a few ideas of things to do, but the only thing they were firm on was seeing Big Butter Jesus:

I have lived here for a year and a half and while I've read about the giant 60-foot Big Butter Jesus/Drowning Jesus/Touchdown Jesus in Monroe that scares drivers along I-75, I hadn't actually had a reason to drive through that area and see it for myself. So we all discovered it for the first time together this morning. There's no time like Sunday morning for finding Jesus!

One thing that surprised me about the Giant Jesus is how roughly-made it looks from close up. It's sort of like clay was just daubed on there willy-nilly, or that he's made out of papier-maché. He also looks like he's wearing a crepe-paper bathrobe.

And just in case there was any doubt that I am going to Hell, here is your Kids in the Hall moment, you flatheads!

You like the part about "unsalted Jesus," don't you?

"Jesus is to the ten, the five...TOUCHDOWN, Jesus!"

After the game, Jesus gave all credit for the big win to himself.
