Now this is just getting sad and pathetic…

Take a good look at this picture of a turtle:

What do you see? If you’re 81-year-old Shirley McVane of south suburban Burbank you see an image of the Virgin Mary in the underside of the turtle’s shell. That’s what she claims to see anyway:

“I told some of my friends, you know, ‘I got a turtle,’ and I said it has the image of the Virgin Mary on it, and I said it’s getting plainer and plainer, and they said ‘Yeah, Shirley, you’re 81 years old. You think we believe that?’ I said it’s the truth, so now they all believe it,” said McVane.

McVane has since renamed the turtle “Mary” and its tank mate “Joseph.”

That’s just sad. I mean you really have to use your imagination to see an outline of Jesus’ mom in that pattern. I’m going to chalk this one up to the fact that she’s 81-years-old and probably can’t see worth a shit to begin with, but wants to do a little suckin’ up to Jesus before she kicks the bucket. Then when she gets to heaven she can say, “I saw your mom on my turtle. She was very pretty. I told all my friends about it.”

I’m sure Jesus will be pleased.

Snatched from Pharyngula where PZ says he saw something entirely different in the shape.

  1. What do you see?

    Damn. At best a kluxxer and at worst the speaking hat from Harry Potter.
    Maybe I’m just not old or blind enough yet.
