Toast Appears on Jesus Christ
John Ordover sent this in. He was looking at a picture of Jesus (or rather, an artist's interpretation of what Jesus might have looked like) when he realized a piece of toast had miraculously appeared on it. I think this must be a message from John's toaster! But can we be sure that actually is a piece of toast? It kinda looks like a granola bar to me.

Hey, maybe it's the toast or grilled cheese sandwiches that are really divine in nature! The fact that a face can magically appear on toasted bread is proof to me that maybe bread is divine in nature. Bread Bless America!

Hmm, I don't know - while the toast seems real, the figure of Christ is pixilated into little sqaure-shaped boxes.

Amazing. Let us all raise our glasses and drink to this amazing piece of grilled bread! La'Chiam

Ordover, I hope you're joking. It's not pixelated, it's a mural.

Actually, it's a mosaic, a art form in which small pieces of tile are used to create images.

Does that answer your question?

It does indeed. My bad. =)

Is the bread leavened?
That really is the question, isn't it?

For all of you who can't see it - it's in the lower right corner-ish.

I think you're all missing the point.
The toast represents a free pass to heaven.
You must present the toast at the perley gates.

Either this man, or the toast must have WMD's.

I think we should invade both their countries just to be sure.

I am going to say that this is clearly 'shopped. No way a piece of toast can be that perfectly square, and that perfectly toasted. My toast ALWAYS ends up half toasted and half untoasted.
