MAN #1: "Say Joe - that shadow, from the streetlight, it looks like, like, Roger Rabbit!"
MAN #2: "What? No way! It looks like Eddie Van Halen, totally, dude."
M1: "Hmnn. Now that I think about it, it does kinda look like Eddie Van Halen. Or Jesus."
M2: "Hehehehe... All praise the shadow of Eddie Van Halen!" (LAUGHING AND BOWING TOWARDS SHADOW)

ZOMBIES: (EAT M1 & M2'S BRAINS)

[link] EAST CHICAGO | The streetlight casting a shadow that many people say resembles Jesus will no longer shine in the 1400 block of Drummond Street.
East Chicago Police Chief Angelo Machuca called an emergency meeting Sunday morning to recommend the light be turned off in the interest of public safety. Mayor George Pabey agreed.
People have flocked to the site since Wednesday, when a woman first claimed to see the image on the side of a tree. The image is only visible at night when the streetlight near the tree is illuminated.
