Welsh mum amazed by Marmite Messiah

Edible Son of God manifests in Rhondda

Top three mobile application threats

Aficionados of Jesus simulacra can add a Marmite lid to the list of places the Son of God has chosen to manifest, following a Welsh woman's discovery of the Messiah's likeness formed from the delicious tar-based spread.

Claire Allen, 36, spotted the astonishing face as she was poised to poison son Robbie, 4, with Marmite on toast. The mother of three from Danygraig, Ystrad, Rhondda, told the South Wales Echo: “I couldn’t believe it. I opened the Marmite jar and put it on the breakfast bar, and the lid caught my eye.

“I just looked at it and immediately thought, that’s Jesus Christ. It wasn’t a new jar, but I’d never noticed that before.”

Son Jamie, 14, immediately confirmed the visage "looks like God", and readers can judge for themselves if we're talking Jesus or Frank Zappa right here.

Allen admitted she isn't very religious, but that she "took comfort" from the divine visitation. She said: “People might think I’m nuts, but I like to think it’s Jesus looking out for us. We’ve had a tough couple of months; my mum’s been really ill and it’s comforting to think that if he is there, he’s watching over us.

“I often see Jesus’ face in a lot of things I do. And there are a few times I can think of when I’ve seen the face of Jesus in a window. But he’s never appeared in my food before.”

Reg regulars will recall that Jesus has previously revealed himself in a hawthorn bush, 22 gauge steel, a Samsung Flash memory chip and a Romanian wardrobe, while his mum legendarily popped up in a grilled cheese sandwich. ®
