    This has got to be the worse one yet. All the others, like the Virgin Mary, could have happened, but this one seems a lil odd. Seems to be almost a perfect image.

    this kind of thing is actually pretty easy to fake. I saw a show a long time ago about a guy who did "toast art". He'd cut tinfoil into an image and wrap it around the toast, and it would then toast the image onto the bread. I bet you could do the same thing with a pancake.

    I just fail to see where people get off pulling stunts like this. Yeah honey, your pancake just happened to burn that clear, sharp cross into the pancake. Umm, yeah. Uh huh.

    And they have that college professor on TV saying it's a coincidence that it burned that way. Riiiiiight.

    Haven't any of these people heard of Occam's Razor? Let's see, which is the most likely cause from a statistical/scientific standpoint:

    1. Divine Intervention

    2. Coincidental Burning

    3. Fraud

    Hmmmm, lets see. :rolleyes:

    This is simply not newsworthy.

    Am I the only one that sees that as a picture of the pope hitting himself on the head with a cross? :p

    Man. I haven't had lunch yet and that Pope pancake is looking pretty good.

    If this WERE divine intervention, I'd have to imagine there would be Pope pancakes, like, magically appearing all over New Orleans and Pakistan right now ...

    But what I'm really thinking, I mean, is "where's the pancake with a picture of me?"

    as said above, it's easy to make:
    cut a shape in tin foil, prepare the pancake a little undercooked on one side and than flip it over the shape and push with a spatula.

    the easiest to make are smilies, hearts, stars, xmas trees. also works well with halloween-themed ones (pumpkins, bats, ghosts).

    if your kid is a pain to feed in the morning, this works :)

    I haven't experimented with complex "designs", but i think you can probably get pretty good 'two-tones', and any pattern that is pumpkin-carveable should be good.


    do you think one with darwin's face would do well on e-bay?

    edit:
    get a well-contrasted picture of yourself, scan it, photoshop it to black/white, maximum contrast, print it, cut it out, copy it to reynolds wrap, cut it out, burn it on the pancake, post in on MR ;)

    the thing is that the burn sport look to be in the shape of 1cm circles which make me think that they burned it on after cooking with a torch, with or without a mask.

    Maybe we should make a post yourself as a pancake thread.

    I re-read the article and I must revise my position: i now think it's a genuine miracle:
    three-weeks only? that beats the original virgin mary hands down!
    too bad for the baby's speech impediment...

    I can see apple integrating "sacred pancake" mode into PhotoBooth. ;)

    But your directions forgot one step:

    After burning the religious image into the pancake, got to http://www.ebay.com and list your pancake.

    Religious nuts. Crazy folk they be

    Funny that it is from an area about 25 min from where I live.

    Knowing that area, this is not surprising in the least.

    It's amazing what people will go nuts over.

    Show me a Pope Belgian waffle and I might be impressed.

    Yesterday my cat sneezed, and when his snot hit the wall it looked like Jesus. Darnit, I should have scraped it off and put it up on eBay.

    I guess with a pancake like that there's no need to say grace before eating it, the darn thing seems to be doing that on it's own.

    She'd be nervous it was a picture of the Last Supper on that thing :rolleyes:

    Now that would be a great fundraiser for a church. Pancakes with religious icons on them.
