I wouldn't pay 99 million dollars for that thing that's for sure.

If I had a sandwhich that blessed me in the amount of $70,000, I'd be hard pressed to give it up. Plus, why is the Virgin Mary blessing people with big winnings at a casino? Just seems backwards to me, but oh well.

I just wonder how many of those bids are serious.

More like sacri-LICIOUS

This is yet another one of those "I wish I'D thought of that before they had" situations...maybe I can start cranking out some "bargain" sandwiches in a week.

Type "Virgin Mary Grilled Cheese" into the Ebay search bar, and you get a bunch of people who now have their own stuff listed as "NOT Virgin Mary Grilled Cheese". There's also a copy Virgin Mary Grilled Cheese sandwich, with just a happy face drawn on a sandwich.

EBay will retract fake bid. A few people probably pushed the bidding into the millions and the bid will revert back to the price after the first fake.

RE: the "NOT" subject line. That is keyword phishing or keyword spamming. I can't remember what eBay calls it. One can not post what something isn't unless one has good reason. An auction like that is sure to be pulled.

Example. One can not have an auction titled "Toy bike, NOT honda, NOT kawasaki, NOT suzuki, NOT fatboy"

If someone searches for any of those keywords, it will pop up in their search. It can get quite annoying to have a search result of stuff that one is NOT searching for.

This thing seems to have taken on a life of it's own with people selling Virgin Mary grilled cheese sandwhich shirts, pictures, etc. My personal favorite item, however, is this:

We'll open the floor to debate:

If the Virgin Mary's been eaten, is is the Sandwich still Virgin or would it now just be a Mary sandwich?

To paraphase Bill CLinton...

It depends on what the meaning of the words "is is" are...

I wonder how pissed off the winner is going to be when they find out that it's not actually the Virgin Mary on the sandwich, but actually Lisa Marie Presley... It's almost uncanny.

Hm, Sacrilicious Cafe. Jesus Hotcakes, Virgin Mary Grilled Cheese, Last Supper Lasagna... It COULD work. Though the bigger question is that would this kind of sca- I mean free enterprise, well would this put you on the top of the "To be Smoten" list?

And we have a winner! Golden Palace paid over $28,000 for it.

    Until now, the GoldenPalace was best known for its tattoos on the backs of boxers. But parent company CEO Steve Baker figures the sandwich was worth the price. He said at the bare minimum "we'd all get a laugh and a hoot about it."


Interesting follow-up, just thought I'd share. My apologies for resurrecting the thread (no pun intended).

Golden Palace also sponsored this year's Super Bowl streaker.
They like publicity don't they?
