E-Bay Ponders 'Jesus's Face In A Block Of Wood' Catagory
by Mark on 1/19/2005 (9)

"I can see Jeezus, I tells ya'!!"
(AP) - Shortly after a burnt cheese sandwich with the image of the "Blessed Virgin" scorched into it fetched a record 100,000 bids and 28,000 dollars on E-Bay, religious images have been popping up all over floors doors and walls across America.

Skip Ziegler tore a piece of 1970's era paneling from his basement rec room like an 1849 Gold Rush miner tearing into a clod of California dirt

"It was in my basement for 30 years, and I ain't never seen it before! It's just like a miracle! It's got Jeezus in it! Look at that knothole there! It looks just like Jeezus, I tells ya'!!"

Ziegler was excited. Ziegler was not alone.

Across the land, faces of Jesus, the Virgin Mary, The Holy Ghost, The Heavenly Father, and even less Godly earthly icons like Elvis and George Bush are showing up on pieces of toast, on muck covered windowpanes, wood grained paneling and bowls of Cheerios like fireflies on a July summer night. These "religious" curios eventually find their way to E-Bay, where incredibly, they seem to have a brisk following of bidders who believe them to be signs from God, mysteriously communicated through everyday objects and occurrences.

So many are popping up online, E-Bay is musing with the idea of creating a special category just for them

When asked the inevitable question, if he was just making an attempt to capitalize on the recent "Virgin Mary on a piece of toast" trend to make quick bucks on E-Bay by finding what remotely looks like a shrouded figure in a block of wood, and abusing the ubiquitous online trader page to locate the gullible willing to pay for such objects, Ziegler exploded:

"Like hell!! After all, what do you see? I see Jeezus, and I'm sure other folks will see it too! It's all in the eye of the beholder after all."

E-Bay is grappling for a way to deal with perishable items such as "Jehovah on a frozen banana" and "Allah on a corn dog", and hopes to find a solution soon.

What animal is this a picture of?

x Enter the simple name for this animal... i.e., if you see a "north american grizzly bear", just enter "bear".
Surround you text with the following tags to use special formatting:
[B][/B] for Bold text.
[I][/I] for Italic text.
[QUOTE][/QUOTE] for a quote.

For example, in order to write "Smthop rules" in bold, you would enter: [B]Smthop rules[/B].
