The Lord works in mysterious ways.

Oops.

According to Someecards, actor James Bland says that his headshot from five years ago has been “used” by so many people and websites that he created a folder on his computer titled “stealing my pic.”

“Yes, YEARS!” Bland said. “I took that photo over five years ago and it has made its rounds on the internet; mostly dating sites. I’ve been surprised at how many dating websites are out there. One time I got a message from a woman saying she was messaging with a guy on OurTime.com who was using my photo. My first thought was ‘da fuck is Our Time?’ So, I did some research and discovered it’s a dating site for people over 50.”

However, having his photo featured on a dating website for people who can get a free cup of coffee at Denny’s is far from the craziest thing Bland has seen his headshot used for, and that’s thanks to a pastor who recently got busted using that same headshot for a fake obituary in an effort to get some paid leave from his parish. Allegedly, of course.

We’ll let Bland take it from here:

The gang at Someecards also pointed out that the “deceased’s” name switched from Eddie to James multiple times in the fake obit, and according to a tweet from Bland that has since been deleted, here’s how the whole thing played out:
