There was an interesting report on San Francisco’s morning news show, Morning’s On Two. It seems that a Bay Area resident found Jesus…on a pancake. That’s right; he was just frying it up and after a few flips with the spatula he saw his savior’s face on the non-burnt side.
I’m sure there are a few of you who feel that I’m being unduly cynical right now. I know there are many who believe that Jesus’ image shows up on a lot of different and seemingly odd things. But I think even those of you who subscribe to that belief might find the second part of the report a bit suspicious. You see once this man realized that he was looking at the image of what he professes to believe to be the one true son of God, he did not run to his church to share his breakfast with the congregation. He did not invite sinners into his home so they might be transformed by his holy griddle. Oh no.
What he did was put the holy pancake up for auction on EBay. Starting bid: $500.
And you know what? I bet someone will bid on it because that’s the kind of weird world we live in. To quote John Stewart, “It’s not that we can’t make this shit up, it’s that we wish we had to.”
Ah well, on to other things. I want to remind all of you Bay Area gals that I’ll be reading at Make Out Room on Saturday (the 11th) for Writers With Drinks . I’m no longer going to be last so for those of you who were planning on coming late you have officially been forewarned.
Now if you’ll excuse me my publicist and fellow Grey’s Anatomy fan, Susan Schwartzm, has called to let me know that they'll be running an encore presentation of the episode I missed last Sunday. Very important stuff.
