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.

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.

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.
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?

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