Kate made me post this…'Virgin Mary' toast fetches $28,000
I really wanted to avoid posting this stupid item, but wifey Kate felt that it was too “wingnutilicious” not to. I mean, this is a quote from the maker/seller of the sandwich — “We believe that everyone should be able to see it and learn of its mystical power for themselves.” An internet casino ponied up the $28K on eBay and, according to the BBC story, said it was a “part of pop culture”. Goldenpalace.com will take the sandwich on world tour before selling it and donating the money to charity. No lie.
Actual quote from the “owner” of the grilled cheese, Diane Duyser: “I went to take a bite out of it, and then I saw this lady looking back at me. I hollered for [my husband]. It scared me at first.” I think the woman was referring to the grilled cheese, not Mrs. Duyser’s makeup.
