Ha ha ha....

Nearly as weird as those "I saw Jesus/Mary/Mother Theresa's face in a bun/bagel/potato/tree stump stories - only funnier as it is so rubbish - and the seller actually thinks they can sell it for real $ (well maybe they can, there are plenty of weirdos out there I guess...)

Dial for the Vatican miracle police... NOW! Yes they *are* real, it's their job to check out stories of the miraculous and decide if they are *real* miracles or just "amazing phenomena"

[Wink]

EDIT: For a (weak) example.... If TFD and Mrs were of the Roman Catholic persuasion and felt the Big Guy had sent them a special sign or miracle regards their pearl (and their priest supported them in that claim and his Cardinal, etc.) then the Miracle Police would be called into play...

Be careful not to burninate it on cooking.

Someone's actually bidding $36USD thus far on it. [Eek!]

Yeah. Money's no object when you're nuts.

Craziest thing I've ever seen on eBay. 40 bucks for a flipping shrimp in an s shape.

How could anyone parody this? This is a walking, breathing, shouting self-parody.

Is Homestar runner really that popular?

There's a couple dudes who are friends with one of my coworkers. Everyday they come back to our end of the lab to eat their lunch and read StrongBad e-mails. Even when my co-worker is not around. So yeah, it's popular...among geeky grad students that is.

and it's had 28 bids.

Hmmm one thinks that one will pop down to the store, buy some shrimp, and fry up one in the shape of Bush.

I rekkin I can git hunnerds o' dollars fer that.
