Cheap at any Price

The Mother Goddess, the Virgin Mary, is cheapening her market value with her habit of appearing on all manners of low cost consumables. At right is the Virgin embossing a toasted cheese sandwich that was sold at auction three years ago for $28,000. She has appeared as a Rold Gold Honey Mustard pretzel and as a smudge on a school cafeteria pizza pan. Allah is no better. He has etched His name on the inside of tomatoes and on a serving of beans and eggs.

It is a bad decision to low-ball the franchise like this. No one has ever seen the Virgin Mary on Filet Mignon or on a Perigord Black Truffle but wouldn't a God (and His mommy) want to appear on the very best?
