Woman sees Jesus on potato chip

NEWPORT, Minn., April 10 (UPI) -- A Minnesota woman who discovered what she believes to be an image of Jesus in a potato chip said she considers it to be an Easter-time sign of hope.

Carol Isaak, 67, of Newport, said she was snacking on a bag of ripple-style Clancy's brand chips the night before Easter when she noticed a hole in the center of the chip had an unusual, but recognizable, shape, the St. Paul (Minn.) Pioneer-Press reported Tuesday.

Isaak said she showed the chip to her husband, Vern, and he immediately agreed the shape looked like Jesus Christ on the cross.

"I wanted to take it to church yesterday and show it to our minister, but I was afraid it would get broken," Isaak said Monday.

She said friends have suggested she put the chip on eBay, but she wouldn't "feel right selling it."

Isaak, who said her husband has recently experienced health problems, said she sees the chip as a sign of hope from above.

"I think it's just a comforting thing telling me things will be OK," she said.

Lori Wing, administrator of the Potato Association of America, said she has heard similar stories from Maine and Canada this year. She said markings on potato chips are caused by disease and rotting, not supernatural forces.

"It seems every couple of years, the same thing happens. We just sort of ignore it," she said. "I've had pictures sent to me, and no matter how hard I look, I don't see it."
