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.

He made his vision a reality and is making money at it! Good for him!
Wow, anything just to make a dough. Try mohammed and you'll have a riot!
Looked more like Bin Laden to me.
Its amazing to me that he is even able to do this. Isnt Jesus and his likeness trademarked by somebody or an orginazation?
Yeah, its called ALMIGHTY GOD.
I've had a culinary device that creates images of our real lord for many years now. It's called a pasta press. Ramen!
Who want a piece of toast with Kenny Loggins on it??
Interesting. An iPhone app named "Face On Toast" also prints your face on toast. Pretty cool. You can find it on TheApps4U.com or iTunes App Store. Check it out.
This is from the Onion, right?
The onion, cnn, sometimes it's hard to tell the difference.
A brilliant idea....to sucker gullible religious people out of their money!! LOL!
Love it! That is so amusing 🙂
Omg i want one so bad, what a good way to start the day by eating Jesus!!! it should have been buddy Christ thou
Oh Wow, man, I thought that was Andy Garcia...........
Andy Garcia? Did you mean Jerry Garcia? If he was on a tortilla it would be a Garcia Tortilla.
Well he told me once he liked Andy a lot better but of course we were both toasted......
Does it work on bagels?
no – bagels are eaten mostly by the Jesus-killing jews.
thats incorrect. jews eat palestinians for breakfast, not bagels.
what a brillant idea! went to the website and had about 15 other burnt impressions on toast! Wow whata niche, could possibly sell products from the NFL, AL / NL, AHL / NHL ect.. or favorite sports etc...I'd buy one! Advertise this on QVC sell to Walmart (made in the USA) etc....
would it be considered wrong if I used a couple slices of Jesus-toast with some deviled eggs?
BNB42: It was not one of my wacko people who predicted that everyone would be raptured. I do not even believe this. I do, however, believe that very soon all immoral blasphemers will be wiped off the face of the earth. It will be a good day then.
Is it the Immoral people or the blasphemers you have a problem with?
I also have a problem with the immoral people.... I'm from the Boston area and have heard the horror story's of the catholic priest pedophiles...
Jesus shipped by the same people that ship the pot!
toaster that is!
Hey, how about a Muhammad toaster? Now, that's a fun idea!
thats a fun idea for someone looking to commit suicide.
What better place to express convictions than toast..............
