29 bids? those fudgers are going to make that other fudge rich
For $15 mil you would think the seller would wave the $10 shipping cost..
You gotta be kidding me... that is the craziest thing I have ever seen...
It's not even a whole sandwich for crying out loud...
how da fudge do people come up with this ish? Myabe i got to start smoking some weed to get more creative
just kidding i dont do drugs and drugs are bad for you
I was thinking the exact same thing.
BTW . . . Is the Virgin Mary still technically a virgin after this guy ate her?
if he would have ate her how would he be selling it?
I think my joke went over your head.
here is your joke buddy
Drug are bad M'K
$70,000 for some artistic french toast? I think I'm in the wrong business.
this reminds me of the time Al Bundy sweated Elvis....I wonder how much that would go for .
A pin, a candle (or heating device) and a piece of bread make you thousands of dollars.
I am switching jobs.
Maybe we should all start seaching through the garbage... There's gold in them there cans.. j/k
I used to live in the Pacific where much of the population was heavy Catholic ever since the Spanish settled some of the islands centuries ago. Real superstitious Catholics those Filipinos are. Once there was a big hooplah because people said the satellite images showed an image of the Virgin Mary in the clouds facing over our island. I made a comment that it looked like she was mooning Australia instead but folk there didn't seem to think that was funny.
'Virgin Mary' sandwich back on eBay
Top bid reaches over $16,000 in second round of bidding

MIAMI, Florida (AP) -- The people at eBay were no believers in this cheesy miracle: half of a 10-year-old grilled cheese sandwich whose owner claimed it bore the image of the Virgin Mary.
Diana Duyser put the sandwich up for sale last week, drawing bids as high as $22,000 before eBay pulled the item Sunday night. The page was viewed nearly 100,000 times before being taken down.
An e-mail Duyser received from eBay said the sandwich broke its policy, which "does not allow listings that are intended as jokes."
But, Duyser, a jewelry designer who has bought and sold items on eBay for two years, insisted this was not a laughing matter.
"How could eBay do this to me?" Duyser said Monday, hours before the online auction was supposed to have ended.
On Tuesday, the Web site allowed bidding to resume, with the top offer reaching over $16,000. Bidding is scheduled to end Monday.
Company spokesman Hani Durzy said the listing was mistakenly removed because officials doubted whether Duyser could deliver the product.
"After looking at it a second time, there's nothing to indicate that the seller isn't willing to give up this cheese sandwich to the highest bidder," he said. "We're going to allow it to stay up."
In mocking response, two similar items were posted later -- grilled cheese sandwiches bearing the images of the Virgin Mary's used chewing gum and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.
Duyser thought eBay would be the best place to show off the sandwich, made on plain white bread with American cheese. It was cooked with no oil or butter.
Duyser, 52, said she took a bite after making it 10 years ago and saw a face staring back at her from the bread. She put the sandwich in a clear plastic box with cotton balls and kept it on her night stand.
At first, she was scared by the image, "but now that I realize how unique it is, I wanted to share it with the world," Duyser said.
The sandwich, she added, has never sprouted a spore of mold.
This boob ought to team-up w/ one of those "MENSA Members" who are always seeing the #3 emblazoned on the side of a cat and take their act on the road.
The sad thing is that the current bid is up to $18,700...
I have a question, exactly how is it that all these people know what the Virgin Mary looks like!?!?
I mean it's not exactly like Polaroid was a big player back then!
Reminds me of a good joke...
The Sunday school teacher instructs her third graders to draw a picture depicting a scene from the Bible.
As she goes around the table, she pauses over one girl hunched over, intently creating away.
When the teacher inquires, "So Susie, what are you drawing a picture of?"
Susie replies, "I'm drawing a picture of God."
The Sunday school teacher replies, "But Susie, no one really knows what God looks like."
"They will soon," Susie informs her, as she finishes her drawing.
So did Susie bring a gun to school and murder her classmates or something?
I don't get it . . .
