    now, this sort of thing I just don't me its complete madness...what do you think ?
    MIAMI: An online casino has won the eBay bidding for a decade-old cheese sandwich bearing what some people consider a likeness of the Virgin Mary and immediately began hawking Virgin Mary Grilled Cheese T-shirts.'s bid of $US28,000 was the highest offer for the sandwich when bidding closed late on Monday, the internet casino's website said.

    The seller, Fort Lauderdale, Florida resident Diana Duyser, says she made the cheese sandwich 10 years ago and after taking a bite, saw "the Virgin Mary staring back at me."

    In her eBay ad, Duyser said the sandwich has been kept in a plastic case for a decade and has developed no mould or bacteria. "It is like a miracle," she said.

    "I would like all people to know that I do believe that this is the Virgin Mary Mother Of God," the ad said. "That is my solemn belief, but you are free to believe that she is whomever you like, I am not scamming anyone." said on its website that the "sacred sandwich" had received more than 1.7 million hits since being posted on eBay. The company's chief executive, Richard Rowe, said the sandwich would be used to raise money for charity.

    The T-shirts, in various styles bearing a picture of the sandwich and a logo, sell for $19.99.

    this bothered me on so many different levels - marketing of a religious icon, the party who bought it. And then there is the main issue - IT'S A GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICH PEOPLE.

    I'm going to predict that someone, somewhere is going to find the face of the Virgin Mary in a bodily fluid - dog poo, earwax, a baby's diaper. Just you wait - it's coming. *shudders*
