Virgin Mary Grilled Cheese Miracle Blesses eBay
A partially eaten piece of a grilled cheese sandwich has become the most talked about item on eBay over the past week, bringing in bids of almost $19,000. Don’t get me wrong, this is not ordinary grilled cheese sandwich. You see, it’s a miracle. The sandwich is blessed with the image of the Virgin Mary. We’ve seen it before, the Virgin Mary image popping up on car windows, buildings, and spilt water, but now this 10 year old miracle is for sale on eBay. Oh yeah, the sandwich has not molded in 10 years while being kept in nothing but cotton balls and its owner has won over $70,000 at casinos since being blessed with the miracle sandwich.
The Associated Press reports that In her eBay auction offering, Diana Duyser, 52, of Hollywood, Fla., claims she noticed the image when she bit into the sandwich all those years ago – and thought better of finishing it. Duyser says in her eBay entry that she’s kept the sandwich encased in plastic, which has somehow “miraculously” preserved it. Duyser also claims the sandwich wedge has “blessed” her home: She’s pulled in $70,000 in casino winnings – she promises to show receipts.
The amazing part of this whole story is the entrepreneurial spirit of those who list items on eBay, the Internet’s largest search based online auction site. In just two days there are already sandwich replicas, tshirts, and decals. Just do a search for “Virgin Mary Cheese“.
“I would like people to know that I do believe that this is the Virgin Mary Mother of God,” she posted on her auction site. At press time the cheese sandwich has brought in 9 bids at almost $19,000.
