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 hope you all end up in the eternal toaster for your blasphemy.
Spoken like a true Christian!
lmfao. let me go get some boots so I can shake in them.
it's your Hell, you burn in it!
"You hope" someone burns in hell? And you're a Christian... how?
People who look to the Bible for truth rely on perceptions from the same people who thought the world was flat. The Bible drew the concept of hell from pre-monotheistic traditions aka pagans. So basically if you believe in hell you are a Pagan. Have fun.
To Funny.... This toaster could have made you money if they didn't publicize it. Imagine selling 'Jesus' Toast on e-bay...
Anyone else notice that this is invariably shown with white (lilly white, I might add) bread?
Jesus wasn't resurrected as a chocolate egg-laying bunny just to be mocked by you blasphemous heathens! Repent!
This is Genius I can't believe no one thought of it sooner at least to my knowledge, I mean honestly the market potential is huge and with the right presentation and pr management a whole industry could be spawned off of this. haha good job for this guy.
This is hilarious... Now you too can work miracles in your own kitchen!
P.T. Barnum was certainly right. Only his time scale may have been off. I'd say there's a sucker born about every 3.5 seconds in America. I'm going to start marketing Jesus condoms next year 🙂
That's good, because as we all know:
Abstinence is only 99.999% effective
Perfect for the 2nd kumming
Gotta send me a plastic Jesus
There's a check in the mail today

One of his best lines!
Not a single lol???
This is funny stuff here
I have to admit that I'm borderline obsessed with "intriguing" pop-culture, depictions of Jesus. Jesus riding a dinosaur, Jesus shaving, Jesus shopping at Wal-Mart... the list goes on. And this toaster is Awesome! (With a capital A!)
Jesus 'saving' a soccer ball.
Jesus, take the wheel!
lol, Frank. How about:
While they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, "Take and eat; this is my body." Matthew 26:26
Jesus Toasters Selly Briskly! They said my name! Ohwowohwow.
We just don't see enough of Sarah Palin anymore. How about one that burns her image into toast ?
Just what I meant when I said, "Break this bread and eat, for it's my body."
This is great, I will toast jesus and then cut him in half.
But smear him (sorry, Him) with butter and jelly first!
This sounds like an idea that a lot of people could.....
Warm up to.
How funny would it be, if I rigged someone's toaster to do that without his knowledge of it! LOL
Consumerism......no brain needed, just money.
Can I get one that burns "666" into my toast?
