BoingBoing dot net has come across an amazing discovery today -- an auction on eBay for a grilled-cheese sandwich with the image of the Virgin Mary forever burned into the oily, butter-coated surface.

The seller, genuinely serious about selling a grilled-cheese sandwich that has been mysteriously preserved over the last 10 years without ever getting moldy or maggot-infested, confirms that this particular grilled-cheese sandwich has been blessed by God Almighty. And blessed by the almighty dollar - which, as of this posting, has thrown 5000 of its brethren towards this auction in an attempt to remove such a holy item from the public eye.

Personally, LAist has a doughnut with the image of James Brown burnt into the creamy filling, a piece of watermelon with the image of James Caan drawn out via black seeds and an old piece of gouda which, well, looks like an old piece of gouda.
