If the Virgin Mary can appear in a grilled cheese sandwich, and Jesus can grace a tortilla chip, there's really absolutely no reason why E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial shouldn't turn up in a tree stump. None whatsoever.

And that's exactly what happened on the Isle of Skye, where the proprietor of a historic hotel spotted the familiar face while chopping wood.

Go ahead and make your own "E-Tree" joke here, because the guy who found the thing is already making punny jokes about his discovery. Reports the Huffington Post:

"I put the chainsaw through a trunk and there was E.T. staring back at me. I phoned home and my wife brought a camera out to take some pictures," Billy Harley said in a release.

The stump has now attracted international attention for the hotel and Harley is hoping to capitalize on the exposure someway, somehow.

"We're not quite sure what to do now. We could turn E.T. into a coffee table or a bar stool maybe." Harley said.

The Harleys are also considering naming one of the rooms after the famous alien in hopes it will attract visitors to the aptly-named Isle of Skye hoping to see if anyone from outer space comes to pick up their lost tree stump.
