More on our Lady of Cold Toasted Cheese

Here's a follow up on the story of the woman who put her stale lunch up for auction on eBay.

"A woman who said her 10-year-old grilled cheese sandwich bore the image of the Virgin Mary will be getting a lot more bread after the item sold for $28 000 (R168 468 ) on eBay.

GoldenPalace.com, an online casino, confirmed that it placed the winning bid, and company executives said they were willing to spend "as much as it took" to own the 10-year-old half-sandwich with a bite out of it.

"It's a part of pop culture that's immediately and widely recognisable," spokesman Monty Kerr told The Miami Herald. "We knew right away we wanted to have it."


[The owner/maker of the sandwich, Diana] Duyser said that, after making the sandwich 10 years ago she took a bite and saw a face staring back at her. She put the sandwich in a clear plastic box with cotton balls and kept it on her night stand.

She said the sandwich has never sprouted a spore of mold

This whole debacle begs a very important question: if you rocked home at 2am, stoned and drunk off your face, and you "accidently" chowed this holiest of relics (because the steak and kidney pie you just smashed at the Engen was a little old, and didn't quite hit the spot), what would happen? Lightening bolts? Plagues of locusts? Or would you and your turds be eternally blessed? The truth is out there...

I still think people are stupid.
