Preston Hollow resident Sara Bell recently stopped by this newspaper’s office with a unique discovery: a Cheeto that she thinks looks like Jesus.
Bell came across the strange snack a few weeks ago while she and her husband, Dan, were driving home from Houston. He bought her a bag of Cheetos in Jersey Village, she said, and everything was normal until she was about a third of the way through it.
“Then Jesus appeared,” Bell said with a laugh.

Here is what her friends advised her to do.
Some friends have told Bell to put her Cheeto on eBay. Others told her to try to get it on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show.eBay sounds like a good idea, but if someone wanted me to be on Ellen, they wouldn't be my friend anymore.
Anyhoo, it doesn't look like Jesus, it looks like St. Joseph.
Be on the lookout for others if you live in Houston:

In the past 15 months, there have been media reports about similar finds by a Missouri woman and a Houston man.Here is the Houston story - his Cheesus looks like he is still in Mary's womb, but with a mullet.
Jesus keeps appearing in food. Some of my other favorites:
