Jesus on clothes iron

Mary Jo Coady of Methuen, Massachusetts spotted Jesus Christ on the bottom of her iron. Apparently, seeing Jesus on the iron has reminded Coady that "life is going to be good." From the Associated Press:
 Images 2009 11 27 Image5801353 The 44-year-old Coady was raised Catholic. She and her two college-age daughters agree that the image looks like Jesus and is proof that "he's listening."

Coady tells The Eagle-Tribune she hopes her story will inspire others during the holidays. She says she plans to keep the iron in a closet and buy a new one.

"Mass. Woman Sees Image Of Jesus On Her Iron"



  1. Now, why wouldn’t you want the spirit of Christ keeping your clothes wrinkle-free?

    (“Out, wrinkles! The power of Christ compels you! The power of Christ compels you!”)

  2. I’m pretty sure this was prophesied in the Bible, wasn’t it? Something about coming back as an image from a toaster or on the side of a refrigerator?

  3. How do we know it’s not an image of Muhammad (In which case it would be a grave blasphemy)? Or even just some random hippy? Looks kinda vague to me. WHY does it always have to be Jesus or the Virgin Mary? When is St. Goncalo going to appear in a toilet stain or St. Herman in an Eskimo Pie?

  4. Really it’s the Mona Lisa. It matches almost PERFECTLY. Check it out. Even the little mark on her chin is perfect, and the shadows on her neck are there…it’s Leonardo’s ghost, recreating his most famous work!

    As a side note, I really don’t get why people choose to see Jesus in everything. I find it kind of annoying. Isn’t Jesus supposed to be special or something? If so, why would he show up on an iron, or a grilled cheese, or whatever?

    And how does anybody know what Jesus actually looked like? Where’s the pictures? How do you know that anything at all looks like Jesus when all of the images we have are just what some medieval artists felt like Jesus *should* look like?

    It’s really silly, honestly.

  5. What gets me is that Jesus is in the form of burn-marks on the iron. The only begotten son of God came to Methuen, Mass., for the sole purpose of burning my favourite pants.

    Thanks, Jesus. Next time, why don’t you just drink my last beer and leave the cap off the toothpaste while you’re at it.

    1. Dragonfrog – FTW. But Felton @6 nails the description.

      Saying you see jeebus on mundane objects make baby jeebus weep.

  6. dragonfrog, I’m pretty sure those are wear-marks, where the shiny surface metal has been worn away to show What Lies Beneath. Make of that what you will.

    That said, however, this is clearly an image of Semiramis, Queen of Assyria, when she paused in the middle of getting her hair cut to quell a rebellion in Babylon. The half-cut hair is clearly visible in the image, and the face is skull-like, indicating her showing Death to the rebellious Babylonians.

    What it means that it appeared to a lady in MA I cannot tell, but I tell ye this: it does not bode well.

  7. “She says she plans to keep the iron in a closet and buy a new one.”

    New business model:

    1. sell irons with a picture of jeebus etched into them such that he pics up burn marks and appears over time
    2. sell the irons to gullible folk
    3. sell them another every time it happens

    Actually to my eyes the burn mark looks more like Noddy Holder.

  8. So the Lord Jesus goes through all the trouble of appearing on her iron and she’s going to shove it in the closet and get a new one? I’d smite her if I were Him. Ungrateful b*tch.

  9. I’m almost certain that the Lagostina product we use to clean scorched pots would clean that mess up in a jiffy. If not, #0000 steel wool would work.

  10. I’m a little concerned about the two eyes floating above (and behind?) Christ’s head.

    Just who is that watching us?

  11. So, Mona was doing some ironing of her veil when the phone rang. When she came back it was burned through.
    “Oh Christ!” says she as she facepalm herself, forgetting to put the iron down. Miraculously the scars on her face healed completely. All that remained of her adventure was this strangely familiar spot and a propensity to smile at all the irony that there is in life.

  12. I like the evolutionary aspects. Appliances get random wear/mishap patterns on them, until they resemble something significant. Then they are removed from use. Eventually, everything will have some sort of cool pareidolia image on it!

  13. No no no! It’s Jango Fett, the bounty hunter from the Star Wars movies. He has no message for us, however. HIs appearance is as completely random and meaningless as that of the universe itself.

  14. Context, you are my favorite concept.

    Long haired young man with beard in a painting or in the shape of a random stain is our Lord Jesus.

    Long haired young man with a beard seen in real life is a filthy hippie.

  15. I saw the Mona Lisa immediately. But this makes me think: is there a fortune to be made in fake “jesus image” objects? that grilled cheese sandwich went for a bundle.

  16. Hey, there’s a picture of Kirk Cameron on the bottom of that iron in the story. You really should show the iron with Jesus on it instead.

  17. Coady tells The Eagle-Tribune she hopes her story will inspire others

    It inspires me to continue dissing religion until my dying day.

  18. Another Mona Lisa see-er.

    Though that’s no surprise, I believe a lot more in the Mona Lisa than I do in Jesus. I know where to go to see the Mona Lisa. Whenever I ask to see Jesus I get lots of vague, contradictory answers.

  19. I’m pretty sure that *is* Jesus, and he wants us to know that when you iron polyester, you should use the ‘low’ heat setting.

  20. That is not Jesus. That is my Aunt June. Ask anybody in Fall River. That is Joan Silva.

    How I long to hear from her. June, oh!, June. Is Uncle Bill with you? Can you get Hershey’s Kisses where you are? Have you met God Himself? If so, does He really have a long, white beard?

    There is so much, dear Auntie, that I want you to tell me. But, thank you!, thank you!, thank you so much for taking the time to appear on that nice lady’s iron.

    Your loving nephew, Julian

  21. You are all wrong, its Tom Noonan as Francis Dollarhyde…”Inna gadda davida, honey, don’t you know that I love you…”

  22. People will see what they want to see. If finding Jesus on the bottom of her iron gives this woman comfort, then good on her.

  23. Sorry, that’s not Jesus. If you look real close it’s the lead singer from the Scorpions. (circa 1985) Klaus somebody or other.
