Dark Side of the The Boss

The Jersey bad boy still embodies the ambivalence of working class America, even if he's a happily married zillionaire.

"I don't know why I didn't just eat it," Ramey, a 50-year-old devout Catholic, told the Jefferson County Journal. "When I took the Cheeto out, it felt different. So I looked at it and it immediately came to mind it was Jesus on the Cross."

Her family members confirmed that the puff did, in fact, kind of look like the son of God. Her husband even dubbed the discovery "Cheesus."

Ramey is now keeping Cheesus in a safety deposit box while she figures out the best way to display it to the public.

Unreal wanted to find out more about the Messiah manifesting himself in snack form so we visited the "Ask Chester" section of Cheetos.com, and consulted Chester Cheetah himself on the subject in an online chat.

Unreal: For starters, what's your name?

Chester Cheetah: The name's Chester Cheetah. I'm dangerously cheesy.

Have you ever seen a Cheeto that looks like Christ?

Yes, no, maybe so.

Do you believe in God?

I believe I'll have some Cheetos Cracker Trax.

What kind of Cheetos would Jesus eat?

Sorry, what did you say? I was busy crunching.

Never mind. Could Cheetos be used in lieu of wafers at Communion?

I just don't know what to say about that.

Are you a divine being?

Wow! I'm not quite sure how to respond to that.

Do you think Cheesus should replace Chester Cheetah as the Cheetos mascot?

Now you're just being silly.
