It's been fat too long since a simulacrum graced these pages so here goes According to wtsp.com the name of a restaurant in Ybor City, Tampa has taken on a new meaning after the image of the Virgin Mary appeared on one of its walls.
The location of said appearance is Hamburger Mary's
The image first got attention over the weekend after some customers noted its appearance on a stainless steel plate on the wall near the kitchen. "From certain angles it does look like the Virgin Mary," says acting manager Melanie Todd. "I never have noticed it myself, before."
This isn't the first time the Blessed Virgin has appeared on an inanimate object in Tampa Bay. For several years an image said to be her adorned the glass windows of a Clearwater office building. Vandals destroyed the several of the windows in 2004.
Todd says the image at the restaurant -- known for its gay karaoke and drag queen bingo nights -- reminds her of that earlier appearance in Clearwater. "Everybody is curious to see it," she says. "It's a true image, it really is."
Excellent stuff but I must admit the drag bingo must be a good draw too!
