OK, this Virgin Mary sighting borders on the disgusting. Workers at a chocolate company have discovered a stick of hardened chocolate droppings (a choco-stalagmite, if you will) that they say resemble Mary. And, as you can guess, they’re falling all over themselves to worship this “holy relic”…and cash in on the publicity, of course. Christ, how much stupider can people be?
Since the discovery Monday, Angiano’s employees have spent much of their time hovering over the tiny figure, praying and placing rose petals and candles around it. “I was raised to believe in the Virgin Mary, but this still gives me the chills,” Angiano said as she balanced the dark brown figure in her hand. “Everyone should see this.”
Oh, I see it all right. In fact, I see something strikingly similar every morning during my restroom pitstop to “drop some kids off at the pool.” No, I don’t pray to my poo, but if gullible folks out there can see Mary in a hunk of congealed chocolate, why wouldn’t they see her in one of my turds? I could make a fortune.
Thanks to BikerDude and Mychael who sent this to me within half an hour of each other. Either great minds think alike, or I’m just getting predictable. 🙂
