Kinda Like the Shroud of Turin, only Tackier.

What do you get when you take a little terry cloth, some gunky stuff from an air conditioner and a whole lotta imagination? You get Jesus on a towel!

At least, Lucille Lopez of Houston, Tx, does. Lucy claims she used the towel to clean an air conditioner, bleached the towel. Bleached it again. And Jesus still refused to get off the towel. That Jesus sure is one tough stain when he wants to be. I'll bet if she'd used some of that OxyClean stuff that's sold by that really annoying guy that yells during his commercials, Jesus would've been off that towel lickety split. Mostly because Jesus really hates that guy.

Anyway, after the failed attempts at cleaning Jesus off the towel, Lucy then placed the Jesus towel back in the linen closet for her family to use. Her granddaughter, unknowingly grabbed the Jesus towel and when she started to use it to dry her hair, she saw Jesus on it, threw the towel as far as she possibly could, then ran off screaming hysterically and no one has seen her since.

Okay, I made up that last part. But, she really did throw the towel and I can't blame her. I just don't see Jesus as being very absorbent.

I also don't see this air-conditioner gunk rendering as being the face of Jesus, either.

It reminds me more of Ted from Scrubs, who is probably lacking in the absorbency department, as well.

And, who the hell cleans their air conditioner with a towel and then puts it back in the clean towel stack instead of putting it into the rag pile?

Lucy, you got some splainin' to do.

Take Care,
Babs - Who is highly absorbent. Or is that abhorrent? No. Adorable. That's it. I knew I'd get there eventually.


  1. You asked who would put a towel back in with the good towels....my answer is going to sound racist...but here goes...a Mexican who happens to be Catholic.

  2. vamp diverl said: my answer is going to sound racist...
    Well, she sure got that right.

    Anyway, Babs, even a fool could see that the person on the towel is neither Jesus nor Ted from Scrubs. It's clearly Alec Guinness in The Bridge on the River Kwai

  3. I will say that I can see a face if you look a little sideways, but why is every face automatically Jesus? Why not ever God or Buddha or Mohammed or Cousin Itt?

    That was one dirty air conditioner. Guess Clorox won't be using that towel as an endorsement.

  4. I'm with kat. People seem to think every face is Jebus, but if someone painted a guy on a cross with that face on the rag, you can bet there would be bitching. "That doesn't look like JC!" How the hell would they know? Are there photos from 2000 years ago?
    Personally I think ragface looks like Sly Stallone's beaten face from any of the Rocky movies (1 through...what are they at now? 82?)

  5. I think it looks like the Subway ghost in the movie GHOST. But maybe Lucy hasn't seen that movie, it's kinda old.

  6. Vamp - Well, you did warn us. And I'm with Ex - your comment definitely sounded racist which makes you seem racist.

    Ex - Okay, Buddy. You wanna fight about this? 'Cause I can so kick your ass.

    Oh, I kid. I kid so much it hurts.

    Kat - I have no idea why it's always Jesus. I'll bet he got picked on a lot as a kid, too.

    Dave - Actually, the Rocky movies are now up to number 3,563. I know it's hard to believe, but it's true.

    Carla - I'll bet Lucy just doesn't remember that part of the movie, or she probably would have picked the subway ghost over Jesus.

    Kat - Thank you so much. I have to get to work now. Bwahahahaha.
