Pilgrims flock to village in western Ukraine to see 'Virgin Mary' window
An image of the Virgin Mary and Jesus allegedly appeared in the glass
Window now removed from the house and out on display in local church

Absolutely hilarious video at the site: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3229174/Devout-Christians-flock-Ukrainian-village-image-Virgin-Mary-baby-Jesus-appear-window-pane.html

Either I can't see it or it doesn't look human to me. Looks like some kind of alien or animal head on "Mary". The "baby" is just an amorphous blob.

Yeah, there's not much to see. Which makes all that devotional circus – and that's the point of the video, for me: the people – look not only ludicrous but really, really stupid.
