A Texas Man Saw Clouds in the Sky and This is Apparently a News Story

On Monday, a Texas man named Danny Ferraro was driving on the highway when he caught a glimpse of some clouds.

That’s it. That’s the whole story. It’s boring.

The reason news outlets are covering it is because Ferraro claimed to see an “angel” so everyone’s treating it like it’s a sign from God.

We’re not a very smart country, are we?

Known as crepuscular rays, these beams of light are more commonly called “angel rays” or “God rays,” and Ferraro said it had a deeper meaning for him.

“I just felt like God was saying, ‘I’m always with you.’ I don’t know how many people saw it as there were many on the road, but I’m sure it meant something special to everyone who did.”

Sure, Texas suffered a huge hurricane last summer. But God so loved the world, he sent a blobby-looking cloud formation to impress a gullible man for a split second. And then news outlets from across the country messaged him on Facebook to see if they could score clicks out of it.

How special is God’s angel?

Well, just look at this comment, which was offered with no hint of irony:

Here’s a thought: If God wanted to help people, maybe don’t send the AngelBlob and save the motorcyclists instead.
