No Bologna. Salami.

For 20 years Nancy Simoes of South Florida has been frying salami for her family’s breakfast. Until now it’s just been, well, fried salami. But recently when cooking three pieces, she flipped the first one over to see a perfect letter “G” burned into it. When she flipped the second piece it had an “O on it. The third a “D,” though it looks a lot like the “O.” “Never before has there been anything on it,” she said. “It’s just been fried salami.” Now she’s trying to decide how best to preserve the G-O-D salami—glass case or Zip-Loc bag. No word on what brand it was, but since she’s Catholic it’s a safe bet it wasn’t Hebrew National.

Gimme A Break, Gimme A Break…

On Good Friday, a reader of the Dutch website NU.nl was on the way to work when he took a bite of his KitKat bar. As he was about to take another, he looked down and noticed the image of Jesus Christ in the layers of wafer and chocolate. He stopped and took it to work, where he showed two colleagues who agreed that it indeed looked like Jesus. No word on whether he finished eating the candy bar or not.

Hot Off The Griddle

While cleaning a griddle at the Las Palmas restaurant in Calexico, California, last week, a chef looked down to see what appeared to be an image of the Virgin Mary on the metal. The next day the Rev. Gerardo Fernandez of Our Lady of Guadalupe Church confirmed that the image was indeed a likeness of the Virgin. The griddle has been taken out of the kitchen and put on display in a storage room which the restaurant’s manager says will be renovated so people can continue to check out the griddle for free. So far more than 100 people have dropped by to view the ghostly griddle, including Renegado and Mr. Tempest, two Mexican wrestlers who were in town for an appearance at the local swap meet.

Lets Give God A Big Hand

When some rocks fell in Paul Grayhek’s backyard in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, during Lent, it left a 9′ x 4′ hand-like rock formation that he calls the “Hand of God Rock Wall.” Not being selfish, he’s decided to share it. With the highest bidder on eBay, of course. (Current bid, $1,575.) The posting says “some disassembly required” and shipping isn’t included, but the winner will be “buying the rights, complete and exclusive rights” to the rock, including literary and movie rights. Hopefully once word gets, uh, upstairs that Grayhek is selling the rocks more of them won’t fall leaving only one finger on the hand extended.

Jesus On The Half Shell

In 1972, Joan Reed Carter and a friend were walking along a beach in Fort Lauderdale when they looked down and saw a seashell that looked like Jesus Christ. Her friend didn’t want to take it home because her husband was an atheist, so Joan kept it. Over the years she kept thinking she should make the shell public. “I kept thinking I should do something around Christmastime. But I didn’t,” she said. But now with Easter coming, she decided it was time. Of course there are those who say it’s the skull of a catfish. Then again….

Want To Buy A Used Mercury Saviour?

As with any car dealership these days, sales are slow at Jarrett Ford Lincoln Mercury Dade City, Florida, but hopefully they’re about to pick up. A 3-foot tall stain has appeared on the used car sales manager’s office door that many think looks like Jesus Christ. Can wrist bands with WWJB (What Would Jesus Buy) be far behind?
