Jesus in a Fish Head

As we all know, people can find god in all kinds of empty spaces. This time it’s a catfish head. And it’s for sale! Check it out! Morbid death scene in skull form! I don’t think I can top this unless I find a draw-and-quarter scene in my cheerios.

This poem is so classic:

Of all the fishes in the sea,
our Lord chose the lowly sailcat
to remind us of his misery.

His body on the cross is outlined,
the hilt of the sword
which was plunged into his side
is clearly defined.

Look at the back of the fishes bone
where the Roman shield is shown.
When you shake the cross
you will hear the dice being tossed
for our Lord’s blood stained dress
Those who can hear them
— will be blessed.
-Conrad S. Lantz

Thank you for that gory rhyme, Connie. It really makes me want to pick up a fish skull and shake it like a salt shaker.

  1. I really wish I could find something like this and make a ton of money…

  2. With all the 'signs' we're getting from all the different illusive gods out there, you could start a whole blog just about that.

    Look, here's some holy tree stumps:

  3. I wonder how much it would fetch on ebay. :)

  4. It’s a Crucifish!

  5. i was wondering if anyone else has ever acually
    found one.

    • Yes, I actually found one this evening while walking with my husband along the small area of beach in Fairhope, AL. You have to be a Christian to really appreciate all that God has created & put in plain sight for us to enjoy & be thankful for the countless reminders of His Presence in our lives. Praying for whomever reads this email. Blessings!

    • These are common, I actually had one when I was a child. They were sold in religious shops with a pamphlet similar to the one in the post…I doubt if they are worth much.

  6. I have 3 of these that my sister sent me from florida. Just about everyone that sees it sees jesus on the cross. On the back of the fish bone everyone see something different.

  7. The Legend of the Crucifix Fish tells the story of the Lord choosing a catfish to ensure that we remember that Christ died for our sins .. these bones have been sold for many years in a number of places, beach gift shops for one and can be found on all beaches
    or wherever catfish live .. the story of this is in your bible

  8. Job 12:7 “But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you;
    or speak to the earth, and it will teach you,
    or let the fish in the sea inform you.
    Which of all these does not know
    that the hand of the Lord has done this?
    In his hand is the life of every creature
    and the breath of all mankind.

    • Job 12:7 is literal and proven in GOD’s creation. The catfish is very significant—just heard about it but it links with other creations in nature which ultimately links to the original hebrew scripture of The Prophet Yonah in the Bible. There is a moth with the hebrew letter nun which means fish and the hebrew letter nun is very significant in the the Book o Yonah. Then there is the sand dollar which has five doves inside–another correlation with the sea and the Book of Yonah. Did I mention that the hebrew word for dove is yonah and five is the number of grace (the numbers and letters in hebrew have a meaning).
      So, my thought would be atheism is one dimensional compared to the ONE TRUE LIVING GOD OF THE UNIVERSE….may this give one pause to consider that there is a ONE TRUE LIVING GOD OF THE UNIVERSE.
