Jesus on Toast?

I suppose it was only a matter of time before it happened. From time to time a story hits the news about a food-related religious sighting. In 1994 there was the famous Virgin Mary Grilled Cheese which eventually sold on eBay for $28,000. In 2005 it was the Jesus Pierogi and before that the Jesus Tortilla in 1977. I guess if this kind of thing is important to you its possible we would find you carefully scanning your food for yet another theophany.

Well Galen Dively has come up with a product that will reduce your wait time to about 2 minutes. That's right folks. Dively has invented a Jesus Toaster that burns an image of Jesus on your toast. It uses infrared lights steel plates to burn the image on the toast.

Dively says that he is not trying to be sacrilegious. He notes that his grandfather was a reverend and that his children went to Catholic school.

I won't say much more about this other than I am surprised it took so long for someone to do something like this.
