This morning the “King of Kings” (aka the Touchdown Jesus) statue in Monroe Ohio burned to the ground after being struck by lightning.

What…like I could possibly add anything to make that even more awesome?

Update:

I found a little more awesome.  Here’s a picture of the statue burning at 11:20 last night.

And some of the local quotes are equally awesome.

Levi Walsh, 29 said “Of all the things that could have been struck, I just think that that would be protected. … It’s something that’s not supposed to happen, Jesus burning,” … who then noted the giant Hustler Hollywood sign for the adult store across the street was untouched.

Indeed.

Double Secret Update!

Video of the burning savior right here my friend.  Don’t worry though because Big Butter Jesus will be back in three days as was written in the prophecy.  Be sure to bring pancakes.  Lots and lots of pancakes.

(You might want to mute the sound on this though.  You’ve been warned.)
