i don't care for expensive rotten swhiches anyway

besides, this is phony, not very Christian if you ask me...
it's already suspicious to hear that he went to a casino, and this swhich gave him good luck and he won $70,000

pssh whatever, life doesn't work that way

shoot i dunno if he wants it for the collection plate....afterall, this guy went to the casino and won him some $70,000

which leads to the big question...WHY would he want to give it away anyway, since it's given him 'blessings' already? i think society would benefit if he would just keep the darn swhich and eat it or something

this guy is crazyyy

Yeah, and once you ate it, you could tell everyone of the light you have inside! Though, unless another miracle occured, it would only be for a couple days...

What you mean like Hepititis, or some God awful unknown disease like Necrophilia? (pa dump pump-Chish...- Dodgeball joke). Pah you dont know where that sheets been.

I had to go to the Comedy Defensive Driving School about 2 weeks ago and the instructor had this little religious joke. Its just a joke so I hope no one gets offended, It goes like this:

"So yeah I heard they have a new sexual arousal pill for devoted Christian men, its called Res-erection. (padump pump chish) only prob is it takes 3 days to work, and I dont think any woman would wait that long."

I propose we have a contest to find the most bizarre thing being auctioned on ebay (besides the Mary sandwich). who's in?

Will

Word I'm in on it,

I got a bowl of oatmeal half eaten and a spoon hardened to its remains and a colony of penicillium mold infesting it. About a month old. Found it in my closet next to my Dreamcast. I could say it was Elvis's last meal before he died. And that his saliva combined with the infesting mold, is the cure for aids.
Running for about 50k starting bid.


Hell yeah its brilliant Thanks Rebecca! now I can pay for my tuition with out loans.

I think she means find something on eBay. I'll play...

However, your idea is genius Will. Once you get your 50 grand, I'll have to blackmail you for half by threatening to disclose this thread to the public...

looky! Even the horse on the can thinks it's crazy that the world's finest malt liquor no longer comes in cans (or even tallboys). I sadly never had the opportunity to try a can of Colt...I had to jump right into the 40's.

You don't want to be eating any foods with biblical figures on them, you could get stigmata. :)


Shopkeeper: Take this object, but beware: it carries a terrible curse.
Homer: Oooh, that's bad.
Shopkeeper: But it comes with a free Frogurt.
Homer: That's good.
Shopkeeper: The Frogurt is also cursed.
Homer: That's bad.
Shopkeeper: But you get your choice of toppings.
Homer: That's good.
Shopkeeper: The toppings contain potassium benzoate.
[Homer looks puzzled]
Shopkeeper: That's bad.
Homer: Can I go now?

'Virgin Mary' sandwich back on eBay
Top bid reaches over $16,000 in second round of bidding
Wednesday, November 17, 2004 Posted: 3:54 AM EST (0854 GMT)

MIAMI, Florida (AP) -- The people at eBay were no believers in this cheesy miracle: half of a 10-year-old grilled cheese sandwich whose owner claimed it bore the image of the Virgin Mary.

Diana Duyser put the sandwich up for sale last week, drawing bids as high as $22,000 before eBay pulled the item Sunday night. The page was viewed nearly 100,000 times before being taken down.

An e-mail Duyser received from eBay said the sandwich broke its policy, which "does not allow listings that are intended as jokes."

But, Duyser, a jewelry designer who has bought and sold items on eBay for two years, insisted this was not a laughing matter.

"How could eBay do this to me?" Duyser said Monday, hours before the online auction was supposed to have ended.

It was purchased for $28,000 by an online casino and is now going on tour.

Online casino gobbles up 'Virgin Mary' sandwich
Snack headed for world tour
Wednesday, November 24, 2004 Posted: 9:26 PM EST (0226 GMT)

HOLLYWOOD, Florida (AP) -- An online casino forked over $28,000 Wednesday to the owner of a 10-year-old, partially eaten cheese sandwich thought to be embedded with the image of the Virgin Mary -- and then sent the "religious icon" on a world tour.

GoldenPalace.com had secured the winning bid for the sandwich Monday after the grilled cheese received more than 1.6 million hits on eBay. On Wednesday, GoldenPalace delivered the check to owner Diana Duyser at an Indian casino in Florida.

A security guard and velour rope protected the framed snack during a ceremonial exchange.

"It represented something that we believed to be a piece of Americana pop culture," said Steve Baker, CEO of Cyber World Group, GoldenPalace's Canada-based parent. He said the company had expected "minimum value" -- and "a laugh and a hoot about it," but admitted: "It's taken on more of a life of its own than we ever imagined."
