Jackson apparition in California tree

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly): rationalist.org.uk

I've steered clear of Michael Jackson posts since he died, partly due to saturation, but also due to having nothing to add, but it seems I've well and truly broken my duck today, as I can't help sharing this story as well as the post below. Found via Ship of Fools on Twitter (who are also responsible for this inspired Stephen Green / Ahmadinejad lookalike), I give you an apparition of Michael Jackson in the stump of a tree in Stockton, California.

Now, I can kind of (kind of) understand why someone might think, or at least want to think, that Jesus or Mary had appeared to them in a baked potato or a can of dog food or whatever, but Michael Jackson? The man may have known his way around a tune, but banal miracles like this have tended to be the preserve of Biblical figures.

Anyway, have a look at the log and see if you can see the resemblance to the late King of Pop. Also, while I'm at it, I may as well share my personal favourite Jacko Sun headline from last week:
"Funeral snub for buddy Bubbles"
That is all.

Update: Actually, just one more thing - it turns out that isn't the only apparition story. His ghost's been wandering round Neverland too.

I think it looks more like the eye of Sauron.

I just can't see it! Is it me?

I think I see it.
Looks more like Brian May with a tan.
