The Father, the Son and the Holy Toast

Elvis appeared in a tree in Fairford, Gloucestershire, recently. And the Virgin Mary turned up in a slice of 10 year old toast that went on to be sold on e-bay for a staggering $28,000.

Unbelievable. Simulacra are big business.

In recent years the name of Allah has appeared in all manner of confectionary and other baked goods. So, I wondered, is there anyone out there who wants to start the bidding on this not-at-all faked miraculous piece of toast that bears the image of Shakin' Stevens?

I'd accept a thousand as a starting bid.

OK. Thirty quid.

You're breaking my heart.

A fiver.

Tightwads.
