In one of the most famous cases of pareidolia in recent US history, a woman afflicted with Catholicism imagined she saw and recognized the image of Our Lady of The Grilled Cheese Sandwich as she was making a grilled cheese sandwich.
Now I feel pretty confident that if the image of a member of my family appeared in a food item I intended to consume, I’d likely recognize that image because I know what the faces of my family members look like. But I wonder when it was that this nice American Catholic lady met Our Lady of Velveeta in the first place. After all, it is difficult to recognize the face of someone we have never seen before.
Did the inDUHvidual that made this miraculous discovery previously see a photograph of Our Lady of Nutrition-Free Bread and Sickening Imitation Cheese that was taken 2,000 years ago, just before her miraculous ascension into fairy tale land? And gee, once Our Lady Of American Cheeselike Goop on Bland Bread left the atmosphere of planet Earth, how did she continue breathing?
Is there, indeed, any living person who has ever actually seen this fictional virgin mother of an imaginary deity? Perhaps not.
So here is the thing, often people attribute recognition falsely. In this case the original griller of the Holy Sandwich recognized a pattern that made her think it was a face. She then supplied the fictional association with the fictional virgin, but how did she know?
Like everything else associated with the ancient fairy tales of Abraham, this story has only one little snippet of truth that we can rely on, there really was a grilled cheese sandwich.
