Virgin Mary Frying Pan
The woman who auctioned off the Virgin Mary Grilled Cheese Sandwich on eBay is now selling the 'Official Holy Pan That Made The Grilled Cheese Sandwich'.

This is not a joke. This is the Official 10 year old one of a kind Virgin Mary Grilled Cheese Sandwich Holy Pan. There is NOT Another.  I have chosen to Auction off the Holy Pan on E-Bay instead of the Auction House "Christy's of London" to give the world a chance to Bid on it.

Next, I assume, she'll be selling the 'Holy Spatula' that turned the grilled cheese sandwich, and then the 'Holy Stove' that cooked the thing. And then the 'Holy House' in which the stove was located.

How 'bout the "Holy Cow" which gave the milk that was made into the cheese in the sandwich?

What about the wrappings that the "holy" products came in? (if we're really gonna be stupid)

"Holy Frying Pan, Batman!" Hmm, somehow it just doesn't sound the same. . .

Yeah, I am waiting for her to sell the "Virgin Mary griled cheese sandwich Holy Frying pan Praise the Lord Cooking Stove"

I think there should be a tax on 'Holy' relics. 90-99% of revenue must be donated to charity...that would stop a lot of the morons out there from selling their fact we could even make it retro-active to catch all previous morons. Would be a nice surprise to them wink

I don't think the image on the sandwich looks like the Virgin Mary. I think it looks more like Greta Garbo.

Scam artist. I love how she has made her feedback private so you can't see how very bad her feedback is - she only has an 89.5% positive.

Since she is accepting cashier's check, I wonder if she is going to get any bites from 419'ers trying to make an "accidental" overpayment.

This woman is just too clever, she outmaneuvered "Christy's of London" yet again! I'm sure they were really chomping at the bit to flush their sterling reputation down the shitter for a chance to sell this woman's garbage, too.

6,000 + dollars, are people whacked?! I have to get in on this. I'm going to look at a stained rag untill I can see some sort of face, then slap a biblical name on it and make my fortune! Yee-haw! If that doesn't work, I'll sell an old lampshade and say I've seen demon faces in it.

If I keep hearing people selling stupid things for huge prices, I just might get into the act. I have a product that is unique and famous - in a way - but I don't want to mention it since each of you has the same unique item. And I am being strictly accurate here. If I do decide to sell it, you will understand. But until I do sell it, or completely give up on it - I ain't saying any more.

A unique and famous (in a way) item that each of us has... that sounds like a riddle.

I'm not too good at riddles.

That's a good idea. I just with that people would stop selling weird stuff and other people would stop buying it, like certain casinos. It only encourages people.

I am completely blown away by the $6,000 that it's going for. I'm blown away that two people have already bid on it. And I'm afraid to comment further as I would surely perish and be stuck eating this lady's grilled cheeses in Hell for all of eternity.

I got fed up of all the "holy" items on there too so came up with possibly the most sarcastic auction ever and of course, it is a joke

How about just people who know that the crazier you act, the more likely you are to attract a cult following which will provide a handsome living for you requiring little hard work on your part.

You know, like Ann Coulter.
