I am so going into the grilled cheese sandwich making business. It seems, er, lucerative.

Here is yet another! (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=19270&item=5536392 178&rd=1&ssPageName=WDVW)

They seller had that item up before and eBay took it down.

All the "other" grilled cheese auctions are making fun of the one that just sold for $28K.

Grilled Cheese Virgin Mary Sells For Much Less Than Expected
Sandwich Sells On eBay for $71

POSTED: 6:23 pm EST November 23, 2004

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. -- A grilled cheese sandwich that a woman says bears the image of the Virgin Mary didn't sell for the thousands of dollars it looked like it might.

In the end, even though the high bid on eBay was for $28,000, Diana Duyser's sandwich went for just $71.

Duyser set up a pre-approval process for bids after receiving outlandish offers which, including the $28,000 bid, were determined not to be legitimate. The highest legitimate bid was reportedly $71.


When she first posted her ad, eBay pulled it off the site because it appeared to be a hoax. Once Duyser convinced them it wasn't a joke, she posted it a second time. It got more than 1.6 million first-time visitors after the new posting and the auction was heavily covered by local and national media.

The winning bidder wasn't disclosed, but it was reportedly GoldenPalace.com, an online casino.

"Millions of people look at this Virgin Mary grilled cheese sandwich and all of them see the exact same image of it. It's a paranormal phenomenon that you can't overlook," said Goldenpalace.com owner Steve Baker.

Whoever was the successful bidder also has to pay $9.95 for shipping.
