Does anyone actually believe this stuff?
But then I remembered that eBay auction that netted $28,000 for a ten-year-old grilled cheese sandwich with Jesus's image in the toast.
Sadly, nobody ever lost money underestimating the intelligence of the public, or overestimating their gullibility. And when it comes to images of Jesus and the Virgin Mary, religious people go crazy. They're starving for confirmation, for a sign, for proof that their beliefs are true. And for every sucker, there's a huckster ready to make a buck.
As P.T. Barnum said, "There's a sucker born every minute," except that he said he didn't say it, but everyone thinks he said it because it sounds like something he'd say and someone said he said it, so it's probably true and I want it to be true so it must be true. Maybe I'll make a film about that...
