Desmond and Amy Duguay of Turner, Maine claim that they found a piece of Dot gummy candy that resembles the Virgin Mary. They've put it up for sale on eBay
, and bidding is currently at $215. [Bangor Daily News
But some are crying hoax. The website corporatemal.com
notes that there are Virgin Mary molds, which might have been used to create the Virgin Mary Dot.
However, the Duguays are sticking to their guns and insist their "Gummy Virgin Mary" is no hoax. In response to the accusations, they've posted this message on their eBay auction page:
I have seen pictures of the mold with a tape measure next to it and it is larger than the Holy DOT. All I can say is that I purchased the box of DOTs unopened from RiteAid in Auburn, ME. I have not altered the DOT in any way. I think that the only logical explanation here is that there has been some divine intervention that placed this Holy DOT in my box. You know, with the resignation of the Pope it may be possible that we have some sort of "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" scenario playing out here... The Holy Dot was my Golden Ticket! Now all i have to do is get myself to the Vatican and try not to drink all the "Blood of Christ" and turn into a giant grape like how Violet Beauregarde turned into a giant blueberry.
