I'll never understand ebay and continue to underestimate it.

Why are mother and child sleeping in the pretzel creche?

Who the hell would pay $600 for a funion that vaguely resembles the virgin Mary? I wouldn't pay $5 for that if I was worth 5 million.

Amazing stuff isn't it. Underestimate ebay, no biggie... but you don't want to get on the wrong side of a BVM sighting. Limitless appeal. In fact as soon as I finish this pointless comment, I'm gonna go in search of BVM websites.

Personally, I'm more of an Elvis sighting guy.

BVM?

Bowel Voiding Man? Bride of Vishnu, Mourning? Billygoat Violated Matron? Burning Vervet Macroaggregate? Boring Verbilist Magniloquence?

Come on Guys and Gals...we have had nearly 1000 hits and only 14 watchers! Last year a Virgin Mary Grilled cheese sandwich sold for $28,000! Don't you want to see if this one can beat it?


No. No we don't. Please stop hurting reality and whatever relative sanity and common sense this planet has left. Thank you.

Well, if you regard the "edible artifact resembling a religious figure" meme as a clever ploy to poke fun at the religious right, then this might be $600 spent for a good cause.

"Mize -- who offered the Funyun on e-Bay for 99 cents last month -- says they it may have helped him graduate from law school, pass the bar exam and land his dream job."

So does that mean we're all going to Hell or just him?
