Last week, a severe storm struck the small town of Maryville, Tennessee. A large oak tree was fell in Magnolia Cemetery and the groundskeepers worked on clearing it.
One of them noticed something peculiar about a section of log they lifted up. Ernest Ward claims the cross section bore a striking resemblance to a face. Amused by the discovery, he took it to the Daily Times.
A former worker believes the face is that of a spirit. Others, including The Sun, believe it bears a striking resemblance to Queen Elizabeth.
Be it male or female, royalty or pauper, this story probably will fade into the proverbial woodwork quite quickly... except in a small town with a slow news day.
