Know Jesus, Know Kudzu

Freshly home form the Antiochian Archdiocesan Convention; throwing up this old piece up that I’ve been sitting on a while:

(Newser) – Other states might be green with envy, but it’s only North Carolina that can claim its very own “miraculous” Kudzu Jesus. The mass of runaway weeds growing up a power utility pole and wires near the town of Kinston looks remarkably like Jesus Christ on the cross, say several witnesses. “I thought I was crazy the first time I saw it and it resembled Jesus,” said Kent Hardison, who runs Ma’s Hotdog Stand less than half a mile from the vision. “Maybe he’s looking out for us.” One thing’s for certain: Kudzu Jesus will likely be around for a while, notes the Kinston Free Press. Hardison, who frequently uses herbicide to destroy kudzu growing up local power lines, has decided against it in this case. “You can’t spray Jesus with Roundup,” he explained.


Honestly, though, a better “Jesus” appeared in the Kudzu a year or so ago.


Speaking of Kudzu, this from “Kudzu” cartoonist Doug Marlette (December 6, 1949 – July 10, 2007):
