Virgin Mary Pretzel

Virgin Mary Pretzel to Be Worth Thousands — Would You Bid?

In the interest of scooping CNN (sorry Wolf) I've got to tell you which hot deity-meets-food phenomenon is currently tearing up eBay. Oregon radio station 101.5 is auctioning off a Virgin Mary-shaped pretzel, and the bid is sky rocketing. Up to $1,500 already, the Donkey Show (the proud owners of the salty snack) will be on CNN tomorrow talking about how they found God (or a gob of money) in the grocery store. People are bidding like crazy. Would you?

I said "no", however, it would be fun to win the pretzel, call all the fanatics to come view it, and then, bite the head off in front of them all. Hahahaha!

I wish I had this pretzel, so I could sell it and make all kinds of money. Then I would use that money to buy normal looking pretzels and eat them!!!

It's probably stale now. I can just get fresh pretzels lots cheaper. :-p

pareidolia is the term for this phenomenon. basically your brain attempts to organize random images or stimuli into something that makes sense.

Good point, Yum. Maybe it's a money laundering scheme?

This is so crazy, there's no way it accidentally became a virgin mary, they had to have made it that way on purpose! Totally different than the toast or other random finds. I can't believe how much people are willing to spend on this.

The City Girl, I was going to say the same thing! I would definitely make a whole bunch of them and put them on e-bay!

i think it's a false idol. idolatry is more you regularly put your faith in something that isn't God. what the hell do i know? maybe it's the same. this is stupid. what are they going to do with this pretzel? frame it? I can promise you, no matter where I hid this pretzel in the house my dog would find it and eat it.

Isn't that idolatry or a false idol? Anyway, pretzels and grilled cheese sandwiches are for eating. Rorschach images are for measuring you're creativity or how messed up you are when looking at the world.

The shape of pretzels had a religious significance from its origin. But not this silliness.

For chrissakes! One of my cats made similar shaped turds in her pan when she had the runs. Maybe I should have baked them and sold them on Ebay! *shaking head*

Besides, to me it just looks like a kid riding a hippity-hop. Heyyy, it's a pretzel Rorschach test!

Seriously, nitrobezene! If I worked in a pretzel factory I'd make a whole line of these--all different, but somehow 'depicting' Mary--and sell them under different eBay names to make a BUNDLE! I'm Catholic too, but these bidders are so silly that I don't feel bad for hypothetically parting them with their money ;-)

Ah, just as when there was a smudge (in Mexico, I believe?) on a window that had a likeness to the Virgin Mary, and people flocked to it like they were making a pilgrimige. I'm a Roman Catholic, and we hold Mary in high regard, but there's no chance I'd pay $1500 of my hard-earned wages for a pretzel.
