Journal FortKnox's Journal: The Virgin Mary and Foodstuffs 10

Sounds like an LPet JE title, don't it?

Of course, now he's ready to sell it. Why? My guess is that he's lost all his money at the casino.....

Its still an interesting picture.

  • One could guess that browning bread is as much of a process of generating white noise as just taking snapshots of static on a TV, but with a worse resolution.

    From there, we should assume that given a piece of bread we know nothing about, some portions will brown and others will not. Depending upon the quality of one's cooking, this should be rather random. Like noise.

    Now, looking at the sandwhich in question, we see there is obviously a pattern that can be generated has in a local area, a portion that looks

  • Funny. To me, it looks like Mira Furlan. I guess "I found Ambassador Delenn in my grilled cheese sammich!" doesn't have that catchy hook that "I found the Virgin Mary in my grilled cheese sammich!" does. Certainly won't pull down the big bucks on eBay, unless a bidding war starts between a couple of Babylon 5 fans with an excess of disposable income.
