Statue in church ‘looks like Jesus’

A recently-redundant former City bond trader has told of how he found religion after being forced him to take refuge in a church just off Pudding Lane.  ‘I had walked past the building many times,’ said Miles Fairbairn, 31, ‘but I wasn’t a religious person so I had no interest in going there before.’

‘Imagine my surprise when I saw, at the far end of a long, high room, a big wooden thing in the shape of a cross – you know, the sort of thing Madonna wears – and nailed on the front of it was a statue of a man.’ 

‘Now this is the really spooky bit – the man looked just like Jesus – you know, the guy who is always appearing on bits of toast and marmite lids.  I was absolutely gobsmacked!’  Following his amazing experience, Miles is now considering becoming a Buddhist monk: ‘I think Jesus was one of them, wasn’t he?’
