Rorschach Toast

Ian posted the following image of non-Jesusian toast (reproduced with thanks but without permission) over on irReligion.org and immediately saw a face.

You might see something different than I did. Click on the toast to compare your Rorschachian impression.

Show me anything with irregular markings and I usually see faces. Our brains have evolved to recognize patterns and faces*, so this phenomenon is hardly surprising.

* The rare inability to recognize faces is called prosopagnosia.
