A DJ for Eugene rock station KFLY is thinking people will actually cough up money for anything with a Virgin Mary image. He might be right. After all, a grilled cheese sandwich Virgin Mary went for $28,000 on eBay in 2004.
A Virgin Mary pretzel he put on eBay yesterday was already fetching $10,950 early this afternoon. There is also what appears to be a dubious bid of $1.1 million by someone with no history of bidding in the last month, unlike the bidder at $10,950 who has purchased or bid on a variety of items. The bidding closes March 1. Shipping is free.
I told my wife we she needs to carve a Virgin Mary reverse likeness into one of our cast-iron frying pans. She suggested we hold our puppy over the carpet when he pees so we get a Virgin Mary pee stain, then we can sell the house for $3 million.
Shhh. Don’t tell anyone. My wife may be on to something. If people will pay $10k+ for a #@&**%! pretzel we should be able to retire on a blessed house.
