Yes. You read correctly. It's a Virgin Mary in a grilled cheese sandwich. Why the Virgin Mary chose that particular grilled cheese sandwich, or any grilled cheese sandwich at all, the world may never know.

The lesson here, kids, is if you EVER find the Holy Mary Mother of God in a grilled cheese sandwhich, don't go to the clergy. Don't even thing about it. Go straight to E-Bay.com.

Thanks to Michelle for this little gem.

I couldn't believe it when I saw it on the news. That's by far the best thing I've seen on ebay, I mean, the lady says that the bread was preserved for over ten years because of a mircale. Oh snap.

That's going on my top 10 list of most ridiculous things ever sold on ebay. I'm still building it. Basically, I have an air guitar (complete with ownership certificate and a bonus partially used nudie mag), a half-eaten ham sandwich that went for well over $1000, and a private island.

Hahah, that's great. I'd like to see those. You got them bookmarked?
Have you seen the Evil Rubber Duckie? That one was great too. It's some where on NHQ I'm sure.
How do you guys find these things?

I'd definately bid on it just to get a chance to eat out the virgin mary. Grilled cheese is tasty, I'm sure she wouldn't disappoint.

But I swear, people see holy symbols in the most retarded places. I think folks need to spend less time sitting alone not doing anything. What's that called again? Oh yeah, praying.

Careful there Janga, your nascent caustic wit places you at about C-18 (Cxwq 18 months ago) on the 'pushing society away' scale.

Funny shit, that.

^_^ No, it's not.

That's hilarious though. If anyone bought that (a museum or a church maybe?) it'd be the best thing to happen all year.

I really didn't appreciate that.

I prayed for you today, Dan.

But I agree with you. This is the kind of stuff that gives the reputations of people who believe in God a black eye.

But if it were some miraculous religious phenomenon, why in the heck is this person trying to sell it for a personal profit? Why is this person touting it, as Merlinski said, as a bringer of luck for GAMBLING?!

Did it make sick, dying people get well without explanation? Did it restore broken marriages, and shattered relationships? Did it teach people to become productive citizens of society, and to help others do the same? Did it free people from addictions of alcohol, drugs, and sexual deviancy? And finally, did it feed anyone (besides the one bite) who was down and out on their luck?

THAT is what people who follow God and Jesus Christ do, and most times at NO COST to anyone seeking help. Trying to find salvation in a grilled cheese sandwich will get you no further than me saying I found an image of Jesus and the twelve Apostles in my dog's pile of crap this morning.

True followers of God will tell you that it's PEOPLE, not crosses, or "holy" images, or water, or grilled cheese sandwiches, that make a church. I'm so iconoclastic when it comes to my perception of church that stuff like this gets me on a roll.

If you will look at the bidding retraction history, you will see that people have bid up to 99 million dollars, plus, then retracted. This gives you an indication of how many people find this to be a joke. According to the seller, however, eBay will follow with recourse for those who are bidding and retracting "joke" bids.

And Janga, while sitting alone not APPEARING to be doing anything may be called "praying", sitting alone not doing anything productive, now that's called "internet Nerf forum boards". And I don't mean NerfHaven, either.

Just kidding, buddy.

Crap, maybe I'll ask cx if he could change the name to "Nerf Heaven". Nevermind.

Now I'm hungry for a grilled cheese sandwich. God forbid if I see an image of Dick Cheney in it. I'll probably feed it to the dog.

Well said, Piney. Although I do not affiliate myself with any organized Christain religion, I do agree with many of the basic beliefs and principles of it. I find it really sad that things like this sandwich is being touted about for profit, and used for gambling. What the hell is wrong with these people? I guess it would be a good item if it actually was responsible for helping others, instead of just the owner of the sandwich. The person selling this thing could at least donate the money to charity or something.

Another miracle...

I apologize if my earlier joke came across as offensive, I was thinking more of the fact that people should use their energy finding ways to help those around them (to live in Christ's image) rather than grasping for actual physical representations of his literal IMAGE. In all honesty, I do believe in praying. Not for myself, but if people want to use prayer-time to focus themselves on the things in their world which they are thankful for or that they want changed, that is great for them. Praying can be a source of personal empowerment, even though for some people by doing so it can be like you're putting the responsibility on a higher power to make things "happen". My joke was that people who believe that God is speaking to them through their sandwich need to re-examine their faith.

Hey Janga, apology accepted, I wasn't offended. I actually found the "prayer" joke quite amusing. I'm sorry if my "forum" joke offended you.

But that other site...I fell off my chair...my stomach still hurts from all that laughing...that's a good one. :blink:

Except it doesn't really look much like Jesus...maybe Kenny Loggins in the 80's.

-Piney-

p.s.- My grilled cheese sandwich that I made earlier had an image of a complete "N-strike" set on the bread. Hopefully that means they'll be at the Post Office when I go to town to check my mail. Muahahaha.

I didn't really take offense. It just looked like you were criticizing people who pray. No problem, though, apology accepted. I just believe that prayer is a very real and powerful thing, communication with God, and not something to be taken lightly. Point taken, though, Janga. Good man. :blink:

EDIT: Janga...HAHAHA....that link is hilarious.

Im not gonna say anything offensive, but that is another example of taking religion too seriously. You cant expect something, or someone to do anything for you. Its called getting a life. If you are helped, your lucky, but that sandwhich is as good as drugged.

If anyone takes offence to this post, Im sorry, it wasnt intedned too.

BEHOLD! THE NHQ TOPIC, WITH LINK TO WHAT MAY BE THE WORLD'S GREATEST EBAY SCAM!

Or maybe behind this grilled cheese Mary, or something.

And, if that link doesn't work, try this one.

Wow. That's going on the list too.

I'll try to find some of the other auctions on the list, but I don't have them bookmarked, so no guarantees.

[EDIT] While I could not find the actual auctions themselves, I COULD find articles written on them.

Island: http://www.dailytime...13-1-2003_pg6_3
Air Guitar: http://www.undercove..._airguitar.html

Unfortunately I couldn't find any history of the ham sandwich. From what I remember about the story, a woman in England had just randomly decided to sell a partially eaten ham sandwich, which another person in England bought as a joke for over $1,000USD. He hung it on his cubicle wall to raise morale around the office.

However, I did find another thing to add to the list in this frenzy of ebay-tardedness. Behold, the rotten banana signed by Kate Garraway: http://cgi.ebay.co.u...6106450456&rd=1

This grilled cheese sandwich is society's all new low as far as I'm concerned. Althought funny, it's downright retarded. This went from seeing her face on stained glass to seeing her in an array of sprinkles on a donut; and now this.

To all the other shit, Mike, wow.
