Does this mean Sarah Palin is Jesus?

We've had Jesus, Mary, and a variety of others make their holy presence known on blessed pieces of toast. Now it looks as though we have a new sacred image:

That's right, Sarah Palin has proven her most sacred presence by appearing on a piece of toast! What more evidence do you need that her being elected Vice President is ordained by God Himself and that God Himself will smite John McCain shortly after he takes office in order to usher in a Palin administration that will lead straight to The Rapture? And what did the owner of this most holy miracle do?

He's auctioning it on E-bay, of course.

Most amusingly, apparently some rogues drove the bidding up to $12,000, but, sadly for the discoverer of this most holy sign of the impending Republican rapture, it was not to be:

Sadly, there were several rogue bidders for the toast who set up bogus eBay accounts, and after making every attempt to contact them with no response, I had to cancel their bids. Hopefully now the toast will go to a home that really wants and appreciates it.

This is a legitimate auction. Serious bidders only - future bidders with no feedback must contact me to show they truly intend to buy the toast, or those bids will be cancelled as well.

As of now, the current bid is $31.00, and you have less than three hours to get your bids in if you want this miracle for your very own. What are you waiting for?

I do so love a good bit of pareidolia, although this one looks more like something out of a Doctor Who story to me.

Looks like Peggy Hill to me. Hoooyeah!

Looks like Tina Fey to me.

Actually it looks like someone took a butter knife and etched the outline of Fey's - sorry Palin's - face and glasses onto a piece of toast. Instant relic. A perfect slave labour industry for China.

People are so gullible!

It looks like dry toast. If I proclaimed an urge to butter it, would I be labeled as a pervert?

Yeah, I'm inclined to agree with Brent. I'm just not getting that "miracle vibe" from that piece of toast. It needs to be verified by a qualified expert, like a miraclologist. Or would that be a miraclist? The syllabication doesn't work very well, does it?

This story deserves much more coverage, and a new headline:

SARAH PALIN IS TOAST

Am I the only one who sees Zippy the Pinhead?

IF we had to have a VP named Palin, I could wish it were Michael. Too bad he's a Brit, and not eligible.

It looks etched, not natural. And it looks like Zippy the Pinhead, not Sarah Palin.
