From Jesus on toast to Elvis on a crisp, we humans are forever seeing famous faces in the most mundane of places.
Now an animal lover from Tyneside has spotted the face of President Donald Trump on a cyst in the ear of her two-year-old beagle, Chief.
25-year-old Jade Robinson managed to snap a pic of the inner ear while the pooch was sleeping to send to the vet.
And I have to say, the resemblance is uncanny…

Jade – incredibly – at first didn’t notice the cyst’s resemblance to The Donald until a keen-eyed friend pointed it out.
According to the puzzled pet owner:
This photo had to be taken whilst Chief was asleep as he does not like his inner ears to be touched and I swear I looked and zoomed in and out at this photo over 20 times and never saw Donald Trump – it was my eagle-eyed friend who pointed it out.
I'm not sure who has it worse… The dog for living with Trump in his ear or his owner who has to look at it

Now Jade is fundraising to have Chief (Commander in Chief?!) sedated so a vet can take a proper look inside his ear.
According to the BBC, she said:
If you know anything about beagles you know how intelligent, active and curious they are and Chief certainly lives up to that – he’s full of mischief.
As he has the very distinctive long ears they spend a lot of time scraping the ground sniffing for lovely smells, unfortunately this leads to his ears picking up a lot of dirt.
We have fought to keep his ears clean since day one however general cleaning can only go so far.
So far, Chief’s fundraising page has raised £68 of the £430 target. Give the little guy a helping paw here.
Do not palpitate your dog's ear, or Donald Trump will AWAKEN.

So the real question is: what is Donald doing inside an innocent beagle’s ear, and what is he whispering about in there?
