Sacred sightings

I came across this photo a few weeks ago and filed it away thinking it would make an interesting subject for Mellow Yellow Monday.


A woman in South Wales was surprised one day when she opened a jar of Marmite and found an image of Jesus in the lid. I suppose the vision is in the imagination of the beholder. I think it looks more like Ted Nugent, but to each their own.

Anyway, it nudged me into an Internet search for Sacred Sightings and it seems if you can find a holy image you can make yourself some extra cash. And in these tough times, a little entrepreneurship can go a long way.

Here are a few other discoveries that paid off.

A man in Australia over heated some lemon mustard cream sauce and stirred up the face of Jesus in his fry pan. He sold it for $80.


A woman in Toledo, OH, scorched a pierogi creating a doughy face of Jesus and it sold for $1800 on E-Bay.


Yet another lucky woman in Florida saw the face of the Virgin Mary in a grilled cheese and she quickly sold in on E-Bay to an online casino for a whopping $28,000. (That’s not a typo.)


If you haven’t had the good fortune to come upon your own miracle, there is a way to create a righteous bank account. Available online you can purchase a stencil kit which includes the tools and directions for you to imprint a holy image on the item of your choosing.

The tortilla seems to be a popular choice. For fun or profit. (No prophet joke intended.)

Ah, a saintly pursuit. Thanks for offering to do me a blingee(sp). I'll take a rain check, for those long winters when I need a diversion. Thanks for the offer.

I need to pay more attention to what I scorch around here. In fact, just last week I burned some pierogis. Maybe I should go through the trash. Hah.

So...the next time I grill something that resembles a briquette I should say, no no, don't toss it, that's St. Peter??

Hey Rudee: check out your stash of yarn . . . you just never know!

Pyzahn: You do realize that you are a national treasure, don't you? You find the darnest, most original things. Do they give out McArthur awards for bloggers? Perhaps you could do a little research on that! Talk about sweet way to pay the rent for awhile!

All my culnorary efforts turn into burnt offerings!!
I keep telling Lola I have two left spoons when it comes to cooking!
Very interesting ~ Eddie

But if you use the stencil kit does it still count for the big bucks? Great finds for MYM.

Sacred Marmite lid,
revealing face of Jesus—
or do I see wrong?

To me the grilled cheese looks more like Marilyn Monroe. Just goes to show that religion is in the eye of the beholder.

I'm going to have to start looking around me a lot more carefully - I may yet find Michael Jackson's face at the bottom of the soup pot. Imagine what that might be worth!

SouthLakesMom said...

The skeptic part of me says, "Ted Nugent and Marilyn Monroe". The Christian part of me says, "so why wouldn't Jesus reveal himself to us in whatever way gets our attention?" But, I don't think it was His idea for them to be sold on E-Bay...

Nice photo!

good LORD!! i hate all things jesus! these things drive me bonkers! but your post is hilarious.

hip chick said...

so can you eat it when your done looking at it?
Is this a case of having your sacred image and eating it too?

We are truly a funny little world, aren't we?

"I think it looks more like Ted Nugent, but to each their own."

From what I've heard about the taste of Marmite, I'm going with this. "Stranglehold," indeed.

This reminds me of my ultrasounds when I was pregnant. I would say yes that I saw the baby, but could never quite keep the image together:>)

Come to think of it, those might have been pictures of Ted Nugent.

God of Another World said...

So if you eat one of these Jesus' does it give you indigestion or insight? :)

sallymandy said...

You are SO FUNNY. Ted Nugent!! These things crack me up.

The Vegetable Assassin said...

You know what this says to me? People are even more insane than I originally estimated, and I estimated HIGH! Who the HELL pays $28,000 for a grilled cheese sandwich they CAN'T EVEN EAT????? Ridiculous!

I'm now searching for Jesus anywhere as I am broke. Failing that I'd take anything shaped like Michael Jackson as I'm sure that's a money maker too, right? :)
