And the fact that it never ceases to amaze says more about us than it does about Him, I suspect. Take a look at this hilarious discovery, readers, but be good and don’t set it out for Santa. You do not want to end up on the Naughty List, after all!
Geologist Finds Cookie Monster in a Rock!
Apr 3, 2021 Ian Harvey
Ah, Mother Nature. She does play some odd and amusing tricks on us. Clouds can look like the face of Santa, or stones can appear to have the image of Christ. It’s all happenstance, of course, these unusual occurrences in the natural world, but they bring a smile – and sometimes cold, hard cash – to those lucky enough to stumble across them.
Some are fleeting, like clouds, which change shape and morph into other images. But sometimes these tricks of the natural world stick around, and that brings joy to anyone fortunate enough come upon them.
Take the example of Mike Bowers, for instance, a rock collector in California. Thanks to a gemologist in Brazil, Lucas Fassari, Bowers is now the proud owner of a remarkable piece of agate, which is a type of quartz, found in Soledade.
When the rock was split in two, the spitting image of – lo and behold – the Cookie Monster was there, plain as day, big grin in geological splendour. The cast mainstay of the children’s television program Sesame Street, which has been on for decades, is an instantly recognizable favourite among audiences, and a pop culture icon, to boot.
