Quick Links: Demon Coin, etc.

Demon Coin Sold
image A Winnipeg coin collector has sold an American penny for $170 on eBay. He claims the coin bears the image of the devil. Personally, I'm having a hard time seeing it. But at least it's not another image of the Virgin Mary.
Pretend To Be An Illegal Immigrant
Experience all the thrill and danger of illegally crossing the border from Mexico into the United States... without really being in any danger at all. A Mexican park is offering tourists the opportunity to pretend that they're an illegal immigrant crossing the Rio Grande: Advertising for the mock journey, which takes place at a nature park in the central state of Hidalgo, tells the pretend immigrants to "Make fun of the Border Patrol!" and to "Cross the Border as an Extreme Sport!"

Bacon Wallet
image Who hasn't wished, at some time in their life, that their wallet was made out of bacon? Now that dream can come true, without actually having to carry a slab of rotting meat around in your pocket.
Jesus Pan
image I have a suspicion this has already been posted somewhere on the site, but if so, I can't find it. This handy device allows you to place the image of Jesus on all your food. Or, at least, to place an image resembling the medieval interpretation of what Jesus may have looked like on your food.

I almost always have trouble seeing Lincoln/Mary/Jesus in the "tree bark"/stain/frying pan/etc. but yet I saw the Devil right away. I wonder what that means.

"Now that dream can come true, without actually having to carry a slab of rotting meat around in your pocket". Hey... some of us enjoy carrying rotting meat in our pants, and some of us do it just cuz we're old. Mmmm, mmmm, good.

Personally, I think the image on the penny looks more like Skull from PVP.

That's weird, never seen a coin with the faces of two presidents.

In the 1950s, the Bank of Canada had to modify the entire series of bank notes because people saw the face of the devil wispering into the queen's ear.

Hey! I saw the bacon wallet on mcphee.com !

Oh, and Don Sucha, that's pretty interesting about the devil image. However, I personally don't see it.

Last, the Jesus frying pan doesn't exactly make a picture-perfect image, does it?

That Jesus Pan should pay for itself in no time.

Personally, I've always preferred my personal Lord and Savior pan-broiled.

Hmm, what does the Bacon Wallet look like after you cook it in the Jesus Pan?

Hey! That picture on the penny is Lincoln not the devil, and I owne a bacon wallet! It is really cheaply constructed. I bought it while drunk.
