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.

Oh, jesus christ!!!!
Welcome to Idiocracy.
They yell about the commercialization of Christmas, then will likely flock to buy crap like this. Sheesh.
The next new word for Xmas? Hypocrisy.
well, at least i now get to say we all get to break bread with jesus! But isn't that a bit cannibalistic?
wheres my wine – oh i mean blood!
I always thought that the blessing at the Last Supper sounded a bit ghoulish.
This is the closest anyone will ever get to seeing Jesus.
Yet, another 30 seconds, that I'll never get back.

It's a sign!
This is the solution
Jewish Christmas Carols, crucifixes made by Chinese slave labor, and now mass produced religious icons.
If we can't convince them to be rational, perhaps we can bankrupt them with chachki's?
I have it! A Shroud Of Turin SNUGGIE!
$39.95 each, but act now and your second salvation iis FREE (Just pay seperate shipping and handling)
Operators are standing bye!
And while you are doing your holiday shopping, for further information on....oh....indulgences, yeah that's the ticket, indulgences...see my web site, AVD.bucky.bs.net. You DO realize that you can buy an indulgence on eBay, and just for all you debils, you can even find a PLENARY indulgence, so you get to do ANYTHING, and still get out of jail free. 8)
FYI – the word is tchotchke.
Give me one of those. I'll take it apart and use it to cattle-brand Christians who like to shove their nativity scenes onto public property. Who's with me?
I'm with you Mr. Mythbusted, where to first?
What no Mohammad version?
That version is only sold in Denmark.
Not unless you want them to come murder you! Southpark found out the hard way.
Actually, they do offer crescent moon and star of david versions. And, if you order right now, buy three Jesus toasters and you get a Virgin Mary toaster absolutely free.
because moslems don't eat toast, they ARE the toast made by your bombs dropping on them everyday!
This is hilarious! I think I'll get one for my super catholic in-laws!
Im sitting on the toilet taking a huge dump.
Don't you mean LEAVING one?
I think Fantasia probably said it correctly.
Did you know that some loaves of bread now contain enough sawdust to be used as fireplace tinder? It's cold outside.
I own a very nice toaster.
Toasting my toast:
What my toaster toasts onto my toast: (said toast word is very useful)
THERE NEVER WERE AND NEVER WILL BE ANY ANGELS I.E. NO GABRIEL, NO ISLAM AND THEREFORE NO MORE KORANIC-DRIVEN ACTS OF HORROR AND TERROR LIKE 9/11.
THERE WERE NEVER ANY BODILY RESURRECTIONS AND THERE WILL NEVER BE ANY BODILY RESURRECTIONS I.E. NO EASTER, NO CHRISTIANITY.
ABRAHAM AND MOSES PROBABLY NEVER EXISTED.
toast reality by hitting report abuse on all his bs
Why? He's probably right...
Herr strudel ist verboten! Nein!
Much cooler than the Easter Zombie
Thus says the canadian as though anyone in America cared what a canadian thought.
Um..... I do, I really want that toaster
And, there's a $5 off coupon on the website!!! 😀
Bacon on toast! MMMM!
Who wouldn't want to eat toast with jesus' face?
Well come to think of it this would be good for communion purposes. You could visualize the body and blood of Jesus if you could actually see him there.
Yeah, the face of a dead man on toast sounds yummy. Not.
hold it, you mean, you don't like eating dead people? You're probably not a christian then, yeah?
Agreed, I think from now on we should start stamping the faces on every food we eat. the cow's face on the burger, the chickens face on my chicken nugget....
I'm still trying to work out what would be stamped on a hot dog
Toasters are the work of Satan.
Mmmmm.... Satan toast......
Mmmm... with a little strawberry jam for blood. yum.
Our chief tools are toast, jam, milk, and an almost fanatical devotion to the pope.
This is silly. Wouldn't your toast be cooked unevenly? Then it would not taste good.
Just burn the toast to commemorate his three days in HELL and voila! Problem solved.
Now that toast would be really really burnt.
Can't hear the sizzling yet? Just stick your fingers in there and tell us how Satan thinks you are finger-licken good.
