Subject: Family see Jesus image in Marmite

It may not be immediately obvious to everyone, but one family are convinced they can see the face of Jesus on the lid of a jar of Marmite.

Claire Allen, 36, said she was the first to notice the image on the underside of the lid as she was putting the yeast spread on her son's toast.

Her husband Gareth, 37, said he could not believe his eyes when he saw it.

Mr Allen, of Ystrad, Rhondda, said: "The kids are still eating it, but we kept the lid."

He explained: "Claire saw it first and called her dad to come and take a photo of it.

"When I first looked at it I wasn't sure, but when I moved it away from me it started coming out. I thought yeah, she's right - that's the image of Jesus.

Mrs Allen said her 14-year-old son Jamie had also remarked on the likeness.

She told the South Wales Echo: "Straight away Jamie said 'that looks like God', and my other boys (Robbie, four, and Tomas, 11) even said they could see a face.

"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 still think it's Captain Hook.  How do we know what Jesus looked like anyway?  If you look at the eyes as the heads you can kind of get two lizards on a tree.  OMGosh  they're snakes! the devil is behind this. 

It's all in the mind.

Jesus only appears in Vegemite in Australia!  ;)  ....and why's he lurking around in someone's pantry anyway?  >:(

I guess everyone sees something different, to me it looks like the caricature of John Lennon from the
movie "Yellow Submarine."

It's someone reaching to someone bent down.   Two eyes and some of the nose is above the arms of the two dark figures.

Talk about opposites, The lady in the picture sees Christ and you see the AntiChrist,  ;D but your right

^ What I called Captain Hook is probably what you're calling King Diamond.  The eyes and nose are what I saw first.  I usually don't notice the things darker colors make until later.  If this family wants to use this to reminder their faith that's fine.  An ink blot like picture is not going to make me think I've seen the light or anything.

Actually that works quite well with the ad campaign in the U.K you either love or loath marmite there is no inbetween!
