Virgin Mary In my Grilled Cheese Sandwich

“BUFFALO, N.Y. — Brace yourself. There may be a less-than-miraculous explanation for that image of the Virgin Mary a Florida woman says appeared in her grilled cheese sandwich.

Professional skeptic Joe Nickell says it’s the same phenomenon that lets people see ships in the clouds, butterflies in ink blots and the man on the moon. ”

I apologize if some people find this offensive, but c’mon. If I was eating macaroni and cheese and suddenly saw an image of Moses waving at me I would probably wave back at him.

    How does one become a “Professional skeptic”?

    I saw this also. The story, not the B.V.M. on a grilled cheese. Stuff like this always reminds me of an old SNL sketch that Jan Hooks did, where she prays to Jesus for every little thing. Jesus, should I put one teaspoon of sugar in my coffee or two? Jesus, should I make peanut butter and jelly for the kids’ lunch, or bologna and cheese?

    I saw that story too and thought it was hilarious. I’ll never look at a piece of toast the same way again!
