Why is Jennifer Wilbanks like the Virgin Mary?

Because they both escaped across the desert?

No, silly, it's because they both miraculously appeared in toasted items offered for sale on eBay.

You mean we waited two weeks for that?

Back off. Miracles like this don't occur on demand. You think I can control this stuff? I am but a vessel of the Holy Spirit, which moveth where (and when) it will.

Is that particular peice of toast Jennifer Willbanks or the Virgin Mary?

That's Jennifer. Mary was auctioned off on a grilled cheese sandwich a few months ago. The seller of the sandwich reported that it had been miraculously preserved without spoilage for over 10 years. The seller of the Jennifer toast makes no such assertion, yet bidding is already over $16,000 with more than a day left. (Famous UU P. T. Barnum had something to say about the phenomenon.)

If you think revelation is progressive and we now know more about human nature than Barnum did, and/or you think it's worth paying over $16,000 for a miraculous piece of toast, click here.

Or if you want to know the winning bid for the grilled cheese Mary, so that you don't get caught up in the frenzy and overpay for Jennifer out of ignorance, click here.
