JOHNS, ANTIGUA, NOVEMBER 22, 2004 In a perfect example of Americana pop culture phenomenon, a grilled cheese sandwich that bears the image of the Virgin Mary has been sold on e Bay to Internet casino Golden for $28,000 USD.
Seller Diana Duyser made the sandwich ten years ago, and after taking one bite out of it, noticed the Virgin Mary's face staring back at her.
She put the sandwich in a clear plastic box with cotton balls and kept it on her night stand.
Duyser, 52, believes the sandwich has brought her luck over the years and is truly convinced of its divinity.
'I would like all people to know that I do believe that this is the Virgin Mary Mother of God,' says Duyser, a work-from-home jewelry designer. People ask me if I have had blessings since she has been in my home.
I do feel I have, I have won $70,000 on different occasions at the casino near my house.' Duyser has received widespread media attention and maintains that her good luck is attributed to the iconic image in the bread.
The paranormal nature of the sandwich is mainly due to the fact that millions of people are able to see the same holy icon on the bread, not to mention that a ten-year-old sandwich has remained remarkably free of mold.
Oddly, no special care has been taken to preserve the sandwich.
Duyser claims that she has placed the sandwich in a simple plastic case, not 'a special one that seals out air or potential mold or bacteria.' Given Duyser's success at her local casino, it is fitting that a casino ended up with the good luck charm that helped Duyser win big.
Golden has become familiar with e Bay auctions, having recently purchased several items and using them to raise over $200,000 for various charities.
