"Virgin Mary" Grilled Cheese Sandwich Back Up on eBay

Holy Velveeta, Batman!

Like I've said before, you can't make this stuff up. For a time, eBay pulled down the auction of a 10-year-old grilled cheese sandwich that the owner claims bears an image of the Virgin Mary. But the auction is now back online.

The bidding got to $22K before eBay's original action, with their saying "joke" auctions weren't permitted. But they relented after the holy cheese sandwich owner insisted that it's not a joke. Her proof: In 10 years the sandwich has never gotten moldy!

Now that's a true testament to religious faith if I've ever heard one. Or at least a testament to the longevity of the preservatives in processed cheese products.
