Virgin Mary on a griddle
Following on from recent sightings of Jesus in a kit kat and on the derriere of a terrier, the Blessed Virgin Mary has made a recent sighting in Calexico
Apparently people have been flocking to Calexico to view an image of Mary on a griddle. Brenda Martinez, manager of the Las Palmas restaurant, said more than 100 people have cometo gaze at the likeness.
Since the discovery, the griddle has been taken out of service and placed in a shrine in a storage room. Among the awe-struck visitors was a group of masked Mexican wrestlers who arrived for an exhibition. One, known as Mr Tempest, said: "This is amazing. It's a true miracle."
Make of the image what you will. Personally I cannot resist a simulacrum, be it the words of Allah in an aubergine, or Mother Theresa on a cinnamon danish.
