eBAY: “Virgin Mary” Sandwich For Sale *Again*

by Jimmy Akin

in Curios & Humor

Sandwich_1The grilled cheese sandwich is up for sale again.eBay user Diana Duyser offered for sale a half of a cheese sandwich that appears to have the face of a woman on it. Bidding for the sandwich, which Duyser claims she has kept for ten years, reached $22,000.

Then Duyser got a note from eBay saying that they had taken the offer down on the grounds that it violates their rules to post offers that are jokes.

But Duyser wasn’t joking.

The sandwich is back up.



Can’t afford the sandwich?

This Sandwich does not look like Mary but rather like Louis XIV.

Okay, great, Mary on a sandwhich, crazy? very… impossible? of course not… A person who acctually believes they’ve recieved some sort of personal revelation and then sells the sign that conveys it? completely improbable…
one more use of an ellipsis: priceless…

This goofy story (and others wherein Mary “appears”, e.g., in an oil stain on a manhole cover, or in yard light shadows on an adobe house) permits a serious point: Our Lady never appears IN some medium. Her verified apparations are always HER, not in something LOOKS like her. If people would keep this simple point in mind, this stupid “I saw Mary in a cheese sandwich” stuff would dry up overnight.

If it were a true miracle, wouldn’t it be a sin to make a profit from it?

Looks like Jean Harlow to me.

This is a mockery of religion. It reminds me of the kind of people who flock to Indian magicians because they can look like they levate in mid-air while contemplating.

Just as an interesting note, the bidding was up to $20 million dollars before the Ebay police stepped in and started checking the validity of the bidders. Last I checked it was down to $69K.

According to this article, the image is a “simulacrum” and we can see it is a result of “pareidolia”. Those are two words I may never use again!

Ack! my co-workers who know me as Catholic pressed me to explain this…
*ahem* this lady is nuts!
what needs explaining?

I total believe this miracle! IF it’s Wonder Bread and American cheese. If it’s some fancy French cheese on whole wheat, NO WAY!

How insane to believe this is Our Lady.
It’s obviously Marilyn Monroe.
