Sweet Mary, Mother of God!
Ever notice how the Virgin Mary kinda-sorta looks like a butt plug?
Me neither -- that is, until I saw the photo in Saturday's Chronicle accompanying a story on how the Mother of God manifested on a baking sheet at an elementary school cafeteria on Houston's eastside.
Apparently a lot of people turned out to pray to the pan. And that's a fine thing.
I mean, the world's a callous sonofabitch and I'm all in favor of folks taking solace wherever they can find it. Even if it is in the grease-stained silhouette of a plastic penis. -- Todd Spivak
