Divine Intervention from the Underworld

Demolishing people with your vehicle is almost never a good idea.

But it could always be worse.

Or at least more ironic, at any rate.

After all, it’s not every day you see someone so forthcoming about their faith unwittingly endangering the lives of others.

I recently had the luxury of witnessing firsthand such a paradoxical event.

A car valiantly emblazoned with the virtues of Jesus narrowly missed plowing down a pedestrian while backing out of its parking space.


Or so the decal passionately proclaimed.

While drawing isn’t one of my numerous talents, I was inspired to recreate the scene of audacious irony for your entertainment utilizing the new photo editing software I received for Christmas.

On a side note, I highly doubt this is what my husband had in mind when he bought me that software, but hey, I’m putting it to good use!


I feel like I’m forgetting some important detail here.

Oh, right.

The vigilant pedestrian ran like hell out of harm’s way in a timely enough manner, in case you were wondering.


Stay safe, and watch out for the Devil in Disguise. (Sorry, Elvis.)

But seriously, watch your back.

Better keep running, buddy.

Better keep running, buddy.

  1. There’s a joke about a police officer who pulled over such a car and asked the driver to see the registration and some ID. When both documents were produced, the officer frowned and said, “Sorry–from the way you were driving, I thought that the car must be stolen.” J.

    • It’s so easy to get fixated on the irony of the whole situation that the poor pedestrian ‘s well being is all but forgotten. It’s an honest mistake, really. Just like almost accidentally plowing down said pedestrian. Jesus! Who knew walking is so dangerous?
