House Shroud

[Picture of Hugh Lawrie as House or Jesus]I SAW THE NEW POSTER ADVERTISING A TV SHOW CALLED “HOUSE”, AND WAS STRUCK BY THE THOUGHT THAT HUGH LAWRIE LOOKS LIKE JESUS.

Is Hugh trying to look like Jesus?  Perhaps this is coincidence, but I tell you what — from a distance, on a dull day, this massive billboard stares out at you with the full power of the Turin Shroud.

Whether of not you believe that the shroud in Turin, Italy, is the death shroud of Jesus Christ, the artifact is iconic and well recognised.  Maybe things are getting worse, or perhaps I am just getting cynical in my old age, but there is more than just a passing resemblance, surly?
