Banker Saved From Crispy Death By Bacon Jesus
March 12, 2010
Toby Elles, an employee of Halifax Bank, didn’t expect to fall asleep while he was making himself a late-night snack of bacon.
But when his kitchen filled with smoke he awoke abruptly, and hurried over to take the charred pork from the stove.
When he scraped the bacon off the frying pan he was amazed at what he found: Toby Elles saw the face of Jesus staring back at him.
“It’s some kind of miracle,” he told UK paper, The Daily Mail.
“I fell asleep cooking some bacon and it had burnt this face on to the pan. If it wasn’t for the smoke it could have been a very bad situation, perhaps someone’s looking over me.”
Elles has refused to clean the pan, instead giving it a place of honor on his wall.
“It’s become quite a talking point for people who come round to the house and I have even thought I might get a glass cabinet to put it in.”
