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.

This is Maurice Fields.
This is Marty Fields.
Oh hey Marty! Finally, someone new.
Hey guys, this is HeavenSent as Mary Fields. Not sure what I'm doing here, but just wanted to give a shout out. Mary Fields for shizzle ma dizzle!
I am entirely too stupid to realize that heavensent does not equal mary fields. I will continue to be an idiot and think I know what I am talking about. I am blatantly incorrect in my assumption, but what do I know? I've got a history degree from UCLA and this qualifies me as an FBI agent capable of figuring everything out using my infinite resources.
Oh please Ungodly. Everyone knows that YOU are Mary Fields. I am Mary Fields.
I am Mary Fields.
This is the REAL Mary Fields, aka Mrs. Fields. I told you all that I would be referring to myself by this name. You have not followed my instructions. I shall give you one last chance. Or I will not sell you my cookies with the face of Jesus on them.
This is Ungodly Discipline, writing as Mary Fields. Will the real Mary Fields please shut up?!
This is Ungodly Mary Fields.
No, THIS is Ungodly Mary Fields.
What did the Tebow toast say to the Jesus toast.
"Dear toast, please let me burn the Raiders today! Amen"
Really? I thougt he said: "I am Mary Fields." I am Mary Fields.
Who is Mary Fields?
Who the f cares?
Ungodly cares, that no-good rotten sonofanignoranums.
This is Tom, Tom the Piper's Son chiming in here. I am Mary Fields.
Troll it up your firmament, Tom.
This is better than toast Mary! Thanks Mary. Your welcome Mary!
Here is the thing about HeavenSent aka Mary Fields (today). For some unknown reason she thinks I am someone named Central Scrutinizer. Now she has been stalking me, calling my children names and being generally creepy. Why she picked me I don't know. Perhaps I offended her at some time, but I have noticed in her posts that she always professes to by "righteous" but she never says anything that would qualify as "righteous". HeavenSent, whatever I did to release your demons, I was most likely joking around. Please seek help or take a break or something. You don't seem mentally sound and I am genuinely concerned about you. Amen
You were beaten at your own game. Obviously you're bothered by it, but the continuous crying won't help.
I'm not heavensent either. I don't know anything about that thing other than it claims to have a freakish kinship with animals. That is a completely different troll. So please, don't bother posting the same whining sob story about how you've come under attack (just like you did before you "left" last time). A word of advice. When you claim you aren't someone, don't answer to people when they refer to you under your previous names. It's given you away four times so far, amongst other things you've said about yourself. At least change your story if you're going to pretend you aren't the person you keep denying you are.
I beat myself at my own game. I am Mary Fields!
I could care a less who knows what any of my old handles were. Who gives a crap, if I cared why would write "cs" in my posts from time to time dum as s. Or refer to Tom Tom as LS sometimes. Does that look like I am hiding? just like driving HS crazy.
I have been: The Central Scrutinizer, The Illinois Enema Bandit, Father O'Blivion, Sheik Yerbouti and probably a few others. I have to change a lot becuase someone always steals my name. I on the other hand do NOT steal names or troll.
I don't why I am even answering you so I don't value your opintion in the least, but there it is. Who cares!
Yes, and NOW you are Mary Fields. I know your game.
No. You don't. I'm not the real Uncouth Swain either. Christ chex, are you really that dense? You will NEVER figure it out.
Ah, Captain A-Mary-Ca Fields, eh? Don't worry, I'm on to you.
You only think you are. But you aren't. It's pretty sad, really : )
I'm glad I'm not you!
I'm glad I'm not you either, Captain America. You are Mary Fields. I am Mary Fields. Koo koo katchoo.
Who the hell is Mary Fields?
This is blasphemous. All the people buying these toasters are guilty of blashpemy.
Why, does God hate toast too?
Here we go again: Christians pretending that the Bible says things it doesn't. Where does the Bible say you can't have toast that looks like Jesus. Get serious.
I want everyone to know that I am NOT Mary Fields.
Well, praise the bloody lord jesus for that. And thank god for that baptist church that protests funerals. GOD BLESS THEM.
I am a s l u t. Just wanted to come clean on that.
Mary Fields, I think you are the Batman. And everybody else, let's all change our screennames to "Mary Fields."
You're right. I am Mary Fields.
No one ever said you were a Virgin, Mary Fields.
"Ungodly Discipline," you aren't that clever. Just FYI, I know you're the princess that has been hogging this name. There's one thing idiots should learn when they attempt to troll. Know who you're trolling. Guess what genius, I'm not a christian. You just wasted a whole bunch of your time trying to impersonate me.
For starters, I'm a male.
Second, I'm an atheist.
Third, you thought the complete opposite before trying to be witty in using this name. This in turn makes you look like a chimp trying to cram a square block into a circular hole.
I want to ask, "Does it hurt to be stupid?"
But I know that it doesn't. Why? Oh, I know what you're thinking. You want to say that I know from experience, the usual response from your kind. No. The real answer is that it can't hurt, otherwise you'd be in such horrifying, excruciating agony, writhing on the floor in your own drool and vomit that you'd be unable to type.
You just got trolled by a troll.
Say, where's Tom and hippy?
I'm just kidding!
You can't think.
You lost me early HS, what name am I hogging? (besides my own) Are you bi-polar? Seriously, are you?
And you know, another thing HS, this blog was hilarious until you showed up. Toast humor is the best and you had to go and make a poop sandwich out of it.
I'm right here. Did you need to be exorcized?
Boy does she ever Tom Tom. Now she thinks I am a Christian princess and apparently I have been using Mary Fields(?) as a name?? I think she got hold of some bad cat food! lol
No, now she thinks you are Mary Fields. I am Mary Fields.
This is another strong proof that the claim of rise and fall of atheism and Christianity respectively, is nothing but a piece of yellowiSh!t!
When does the Mohammad toaster come out? I hope in time for Christmas.
Should it comes out in the market, definitely it will also sell.
Try to make Darwin's ape designs and we have to wait for Halloween to sell a piece.
Man, I can't believe no one ever thought of this before! The possibilities are endless.
Now, you must believe!
Toasting my toast:
What my toaster toasts onto my toast: 🙂
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 this reality by hitting report abuse on all his bs
Please understand, this is the real Mary Fields speaking. There is a really cruel person out there who has been impersonating me on this board. I am writing to let you know that I am back and that I am an honest, sincere person who is not as ignorant or uneducated as I am made out to be. In order to distinguish myself from the troll, I am asking that you refer to me from now on as "Mrs. Fields" and I will attempt to do the same. Thank you.
It's a shame that children get on here and demonstrate that they aren't old enough to know what integrity is.
I know I ain't buying NONE of her cookies.
Oh, it sure is. My real name is Ungodly Discipline. I'm also known by many other stupid names. I've been using other people's names for some time now. I'm UCLA educated you know. I've got a real degree! I'm 46 years old. I've got two moron children. I'm also a closet bible thumper... amongst being in the closet for other things. I LOVE RAINBOWS. HARD.
Stick it up yer fundament, troll.
Has anyone ever seen a post from Mary Fields before today?
HS, you can't go to Heaven acting like this. Why are you willfully sabotaging your own immortality?
Can we just talk about toast again? That was fun.
That's not Jesus, that's Charles Manson! May you burn all your toast!
No, it's not. It's the Unabomber.
No way I"m spending 30 bucks on something that will just disappear without a trace in three days.
Your "30 bucks" maybe needed but DEFINITELY not necessary.
Damned, beat to the punch again. What will I do with all these judas waffle irons now?
well you can always start a deal.. 30 (sliver) dollars for a waffle iron.. they r gonna go like hot cakes..
