Another miracle

I have posted before on the tendency of the religious to see miraculous appearances of their particular religious personalities in the mundane. Jesus in the Marmite, koranic verses in a courgette, that sort of thing. Well I have come across another, this time, I kid you not, the virgin Mary in a piece of bird shit

Perhaps the picture is not a very good reproduction but I can’t see anything in this that looks remotely like a human figure. And even if there was something here resembling a woman, why does it have to be the virgin Mary. Why can’t it be a coincidental resemblance to Mrs Jones of Acacia Terrace Flitwick. After all who could possibly know what Mary actually looked like, or even if she ever existed.
