Culinary Iconography: Jesus on a Potato Chip and also on a Potato Chip Clip!

June 9, 2005
Rosalie and Jerry Lawson of St. Petersburg, Florida found the image of Jesus Christ on a Lay's sour cream and onion potato chip. The couple is aware of's interest in such curiosities but haven't decided if they even want to sell the holy crisp. From the St. Petersburg Times: "I was down there by myself" in the TV room, she said. "I said, "Jerry, you've got to see this potato chip.'

"He said, "Yeah.' You know how guys are," she said.

Then, Rosalie Lawson said, her husband suggested, "Well, we can't eat that."

She has shown photos of the chip to fellow churchgoers and to family members, all of whom have been amazed at the resemblance.

Of course, who knows what Jesus looks like? ( think he looks like the cousin of Captain Pugwash.)

"You only know what you think he looks like from pictures," said Rosalie Lawson, 55.

JESUS ON A CHIP BAG CLIP - (well...they say he is "EVERYWHERE!")

(Miramar, FL) - A South Florida man says he has found Jesus on a potato chip clip.

Jeff Berman of Miramar, Florida, made the discovery just as he was getting ready to toss the kitchen accessory into the trash.
(I think it looks more like Jerry Garcia.)
