Jesus toasters selling briskly

By Steve Walsh, CNN

(CNN)–From telephone poles, to store receipts to a cheesy snack, people have claimed to see the image of Jesus Christ in all sorts of unconventional places.

Others have drawn divine inspiration from what they believe is the face of the Son of God on their morning toast. A miracle? Perhaps. Or maybe it’s just toast.

This holiday season, Galen Dively, a Vermont entrepreneur, is capitalizing on the hunger for Jesus crust.

For $31.95, you don’t have to wait for a miracle to see Jesus on your daily bread. Look no further than the Jesus Toaster.

Dively’s company, Burnt Impressions, also offers toasters that imprint images of the Virgin Mary, peace signs and pot leaves among others.

Dively tells CNN affiliate WCAX right now, he’s selling 50 to 100 Jesus toasters every day.

What do you think? All in good fun? Marketing gone amok? Leave your comments below.

    I think I've seen stupider ideas, but I'm hard pressed to say where.
