God Works in Mysterious Ways

A grilled cheese sandwich, with a bite out of it, mind you, was sold on eBay for $28,000. Why is that, do you suppose? Someone imagined that they saw the Virgin Mary embedded in its toasty-cheesy-goodness, and some other idiot paid her for it.

"I would like all people to know that I do believe that this is the Virgin Mary Mother of God," Duyser, a work-from-home jewelry designer, said

Duyser said she took a bite after making the sandwich 10 years ago and saw a face staring back at her. She put the sandwich in a clear plastic box with cotton balls and kept it on her night stand. She said the sandwich has never sprouted a spore of mold.

a) Why is Jesus going around posting pictures of his mom all over the place? Man, that guy needs a blog.
b) Once again, it brings up the age-old philosophical debate - Can God make a sandwich so hot that even he can't eat it?
c) What if she had eaten it, without noticing? The sandwich doesn't have any mold after 10 years, right? So, by extension, would she have been free of illness for the rest of her life? Might she have gotten super powers? What if I've already eaten a Virgin Mary-wich? What if I ate a Satan-wich? Am I going to get cancer?

So many questions!

UPDATE: Capitalism at its Finest
For kicks, I went to eBay and did a search on "cheese sandwich". Check out how everyone is cashing in on the phenomenon that is the Virgin Mary-wich...
