Pareidolia: n + 10

What does a virgin taste like?

Salty according to this new (or perhaps not so new since the same thing happened in 2005) bit of pareidolia in which the Virgin Mary has popped up with baby Jeebus on a pretzel. So what should you do with such a divine gift? Sell it on Ebay of course!

When I found this earlier this morning, it was already up to $4,000, but at the time of posting this, it's up to $6,000.

Hey Christians: How about actually listening to your silly book and donating that money to charity instead of buying stale snacks? I wonder if hypocrisy tastes salty too.

Wow, and noone even thinks about just how easy it would be to form pretzel dough to the shape of a woman holding a child.

I mean its not like its a river eroding the number 42 in giant numbers. The pretzel is a 100% human made object.

So materials is what $.1 and then perhaps 1 hour of work to make the damn pretzel, take a picture and start an auction on e-bay. For $6,000 that a cosy little way to make money - and no one who hasn't deserved it gets hurt.
