cincinnati 2010

Let me tell you about one of the most infamous landmarks of Ohio:


As you can see, it’s a big ass Jesus statue.  Like, 42 feet tall 16,000 pound big.  And it just so happens to look like a melting butter sculpture.  And this is right next to a highway, so if you traveled between Columbus and Cincinnati between 2004 and 2010, it was just….there….staring at you…..begging for help as he sat there being consumed by this lake and the ever-burning sun.  There’s even a song about it.

Here’s where it gets interesting.  In 2010, it got STRUCK BY LIGHTING.  And it caught on fire.  

And Butter Jesus melted for real because he was made of fiberglass and styrofoam.  Representatives of the church, however, said that Butter Jesus would come again.  

They did replace the statue in 2012, but it’s a little different this time.  

Have we truly seen the last of Butter Jesus?  Only time will tell.
