(Sept. 10) -- Six years after a Florida woman auctioned off a grilled cheese sandwich bearing the image of the Virgin Mary, a Vermont man has introduced a toaster that sears the image of Christ on each and every slice it toasts.Now, if someone can make a machine to fashion all of my Chetoo's into Cheesus, we would be rockin'.
Call it a miracle! Or just call it the Jesus Toaster.
Retailing for $39.95, the revelatory toaster uses patented radiated heat technology to toast the face of Christ on any variety of daily bread, from plain white to whole grain.
Shroud of Turin, meet Slice of Wonder.
Galen P. Dively III
Developed (some might say immaculately conceived) by Galen Dively III, 45, of Walden, Vt., the Jesus Toaster went on sale Wednesday at Dively's website,jesustoasters.com -- which is running a righteous introductory offer of a dozen toasters for $300.
Dively has deep faith in Jesus Toasters. He's ordered an initial run of 3,000 units from a factory in China and believes the toasters will be a big hit with church and school groups. His company, Burnt Impressions, also has plans to create Virgin Mary and Star of David toasters.
