PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
My first impulse was to assume those Happy Valley imaginations were running wild again but it is kind of uncanny:
You see it a little bit, right?
Bring on the crappy weather jokes.
I keep trying to come up with something related to Joe Pa's sprint for the restroom at The Shoe... but I got nothin'
Well that's awfully shitty...

all i can see is a cloud looking the other way.
WOW! You win.
Pretty cool actually.
You can tell it is JoPa because instead of looking directly down on crappy valley he is looking the other way!
Back back back back back back GONE!
Homerun buddy. Well done.
4-6 seconds from point A to point B and when you get to point B, be pissed off
Wait, is this real life?
Bet you can't say "Bert Bielma is a bumbling buffoon" five times fast.
If that is real and it was taken in happy valley it would kinda freak me out
Where do bad folks go when they die?
They don't go to heaven where the angels fly
They go to a lake of fire in the sky
Won't see them again till the fourth of July

For the record I don't believe Paterno is in hell, but I do think he should have gone to jail.

That's kinda cool. It looks like his outline. I don't know what went on there. Other than the media. And we all know that's a joke. So I can't say anything bad about him.

We're pattern-seeking animals, friends. I agree that the shape kinda looks like JoePa, but there's no bigger meaning behind it.
This is a manifestation of a phenomenon called pareidolia. We take random information (like cloud formations or sounds) and make something out of them. Why do we do this? Think about protohumans walking through the savannah 100,000 years ago. The "caveman" hears a bunch of twigs snapping. The cavemen who created a story around the snapping noticed that the twigs were being snapped by a panther and were able to run away and were able to procreate at some point. The cavemen who didn't think the snapping meant anything got eaten and could not procreate.
It's the same reason we hear "I heart Satan" when we listen to Led Zeppelin backwards. (That and a psychological phenomenon called "priming.")
