Mary, Mary. Why ya buggin?

Great. Now I live down the street from what used to be a ratty old underpass stain, now known as Underpass Mary. She lives under the Fullerton 90/94 underpass.

Traffic is now hell on my street.

    Underpass Mary? A not-so-heavenly name, if you ask me.

    Yeah. What’s wierd is when you look at it from the side it looks more like mary thank when you’re looking at it dead on. So is it a religious icon only when viewing from 30-60 degree angle but not when you are looking at it from 90degrees? None of that has stopped the steady stream of people coming to check it out.

    Well, the Bus Stop Mary up in Rogers Park (on Rogers Ave. just west of Clark) has decayed enough that people aren’t as impressed, so of course we needed a new one. Make the most of it: sell photos and t-shirts.

    Totally. i was just thinking about setting up a cafe press page. “My parents saw Underpass Mary and all I got was this lousy stigmata.” or something.

    sell the shirts NEXT TO the stain

    What I want to know is where are all the cops issuing tickets to people who photograph it like they did with the bean? Doesn’t the city have rights to this image, too?

    We’re going to start hearing about miracles and healings in connection with this. This can only be a good thing.

    What a fucking load of bullshit, im sick of hearing about these gayass apparitions of religious people, the bible is a fucking heap of shit and so is anything in it. With the detail of this it is most probably been fabricated by some fuckface. RELIGION IS BULLSHIT!!!

    ***DONT POST THIS*** If my comment is withheld and not displayed, i will assume you are closed minded and wont accept views from other peoples perspective, It would be unfair for you to post comments supporting religion and not posting comments against religion.
