A Toast To A Rock

Lisa-Marie Corlet of Christchurch, New Zealand, was walking along a beach last year when she found a pebble with what she thought was the image of the Virgin Mary on it. Friends urged her to sell it, but she kept it instead. “I started having an awesome run of luck,” she said. When her luck started to run out she decided to sell it on the auction website Trade Me. “I won’t take less than $38,000 for it,” she said. “If someone is willing to pay $28,000 for a piece of toast, I’m sure someone out there would pay at least that for rock.”

Wintering In Miami

People have been lining up to see the image of the Virgin Mary ever since a security guard saw it on a cloth in a chapel at St. Brendan Catholic Church in Miami. Some say they only see Mary while others see the whole family, including “the silhouette of Joseph and the curve of the head of baby Jesus.” While it’s a little soon to be wintering in Florida, it could be an Early Bird Special appearance.

Concrete Evidence

A teacher in Forest, Virginia, lifted a 5-gallon can of driveway sealant that had been sitting on the garage floor and discovered an image of Jesus had appeared underneath it. Deb Serio said “it does not change, cry, or manifest itself in any other way,” so keep that in mind if you bid for it on eBay. The price includes hiring someone to cut out the section but not the cost to ship a slab of concrete.

Postscript: The slab was bought by “islandoffthecoast” for $1,525.69.

Flipping Over Jesus

Amy Clark of Conneaut , OH, was making pancakes on a recent Sunday morning when she noticed an image taking shape on one of them. “I flipped the pancake, looked down and then called for my fiance,” she said, “I get chills when I think about it.” He agreed that the image looked like Jesus and Amy says 99.9% of the people she’s shown it to agree. It certainly doesn’t look like Aunt Jemima or Mrs. Butterworth.

Barking Up The Wrong Image?

A patron of the Willow Creek health club in Rosemont, IL, recently looked at the peeling bark on a tree out front and saw the image of Jesus Christ. Once word went around, people started saying it looked more like the late mayor, Donald Stephens, who died in April and had spared the tree years ago when some people wanted it cut down to make way for the health club. Bradley Stephens, who was named mayor after his father died, thinks it looks like his Dad. The health club’s membership director thinks it looks like The Son. Either way, people are flocking to it and lighting candles. It never hurts to be safe.

Now This Is Nuts

Melissa Benson of Toronto, Canada, sends this photo of a cashew she found in a can of mixed nuts that she thinks looks like the Virgin Mary holding baby Jesus. She’s emailed photographs of the nut to Pope Benedict and is still awaiting a response. You can email him too if you find anything odd in your can of Planter’s.
