A man's laundry mishap turned led to a holy discovery: The stain from fabric softener spilled on his shirt formed a shape he said resembled Jesus Christ.

Martin Andrews was annoyed to see he had spilled fabric softener on his shirt, he told the United Kingdom's Metro, but when he took a closer look, he saw that the splotch resembled a man with his two arms outstretched and a halo on his head like Jesus Christ.

"When the t-shirt’s the right way up it doesn’t really look like anything… but when you look at it the other way up it’s really Him," he said.

When Andrews told his work-mates, he said they found the incident hilarious, joking that the blob looked like Jesus posing as Fonzie from the popular 1970s show "Happy Days." It could also pass for a bearded juggler.

"I showed my mates at work the picture and one of them said, 'I’ve heard you can find comfort in Jesus but you’ve found Jesus in Comfort.'"

Andrews is not the first person to see the Son of God in an unusual place.

An Ohio man says he saw Jesus in some bird poop that had landed on the windshield of his car back in February.

"It's like a perfect portrait," he said in a video filmed from the inside of his car. "It's like Jesus staring right at me."

Another man, from Southampton, said in 2010 he saw Jesus in a Google maps image while he was searching for a vacation destination online. He said he saw the face of Christ in a satellite image of farmland near Puspokladany, Hungary, according to the Huffington Post.

Some people think objects bearing a resemblance to a religious figure are so divine they shell out thousands for the mundane items. In Miami, a 10-year-old girl's grilled cheese that had an imprint looking like the Virgin Mary fetched $28,000 in a 2004 bidding war.
