    touch down jesus AKA big butter jesus got hit by lightening

    there's a youtube video

    ‘Touchdown Jesus’ Statue Destroyed By Lightning - TIME NewsFeed


    A statue of Jesus outside Monroe, Ohio caught fire after a lightning strike on Monday and burned to the ground.
    The statue, built in 2004 and dubbed ‘Touchdown Jesus’, was a feature on the grounds of the Solid Rock Church in Monroe. Standing six stories high, the statue was named “King of Kings” but colloquially became called “Touchdown Jesus” — the arms approximate the signal a referee makes for a touchdown in professional football.

    Early Tuesday, church officials said the statue would be resurrected.

    The better-known “Touchdown Jesus” — a mural at the University of Notre Dame — remained unscathed.

    Full story via the Associated Press. Watch the YouTube video, posted by the user “TalonGoddessofHell” Irony!

    I first saw this thing driving down to Botcon a few years back, and I'm sorry, but I just find the irony in this whole situation completely delicious.

    I thought it was going to be concerning the one at The University of Notre Dame. Glad to hear it's not being removed.

    I wonder if their insurance will cover this, or if it falls under "acts of God".

    Well, they're atheists in regard to Zeus so it isn't an act of a god.
