    Looks more like Mariel Hemmingway than the Virgin Mary. I would think this would be incredibly easy to fake.

    How about a George Foreman grill with a Virgin Mary pattern so all of your sandwiches look that way? I smell a patent...

    People are idiots. Take the $70,000 and give it to your church, or to a charity, or some other good deed. But purchasing a supposed 10 year old piece of toast with somebody's "face" on it? Right.

    I can see a face, but it could be anyone's face. Can't imagine anyone purchasing a perishable item like that at any price. It's human nature to try to see a human face in items.

    P. T. Barnum said it best, there is a sucker born every minute.

    I think she needs the money to pay off gambling debts.

    Note she doesn't mention how much she spent to win that $70,000.

    I could be wrong but doesn't the Bible sort of frown on gambling?

    I can't find the auction on eBay. Did it end? Removed?

    Yesterday the bid was close to $19,000. I love how every idiot is trying to auction their own sandwiches, web domains, t-shirts, etc.

    L@@k! Real rare vintage Virgin Mary grilled cheese sandwich! Not a Hoax!

    Never underestimate the power of stupid people with lots of money to spend on old, half-eaten sandwiches. :rolleyes:

    Oh good grief, even if it was the face of the Virgin Mary, so what! Pure coincidence......and it may not even be her face, so the coincidence is that there's someones face in the sandwich.

    And if she's going to show her face in our world today, it probably won't be in a grilled cheese sandwich.

    Y'know, I can burn a sandwich and scrape away the black stuff to leave an "amazing" image, too. How much would you pay for Elvis' face on a toasted peanut butter and bacon sandwich? :rolleyes: :p

    I just saw this on the CBC website. Quite hilarious indeed. And here is a picture of the seller with the item.

    "The sandwich was made on plain white bread with American cheese and cooked with no oil or butter." www.cbc.ca

    I tried to make a cheese sandwich a long time ago without any butter or oil and it did not burn as much as hers. I wonder why most people when they have something like this (an image of a person) they automatically assume it to is of religious in nature and not just an image of a person. It could just as much be a representation of Alexander the Great for all I know :rolleyes:

    There was gum on ebay chewed by someone called Maria who claimed she was virgin... but they have taken it down.
    It was very cheap though - only like 6 dollars.

    Choked on my Breakfast !

    I can only agree edesignuk - it is pathetic, though it made me laugh so much that I choked up my breakfast . . . . . . which was a cheese toastie !

    P.S. I want Keira all for myself - not sharing her with anyone - just don't tell my wife (please !). :cool:
