Bargain of the Day: Yet another rock

by Feòrag

The Virgin Mary seems to have a bit of a fetish about stones, and today's bargain is the third such item we have featured. This time, the auction is for The VIRGIN MARY Stone!!, as the vendor seems unaware that the object is not unique.

[Mary, in a stone]A silvery blue stone bares the image of the Virgin Mary

This natural wander miraculously bares the image of the Virgin Mary and her beautiful shrowd. The stone is a silvery blue and white (A true eye catcher). See picture.

A finish has been applied to protect the natural beauty of this wonderful stone. The stone measures approximately 9" tall by 7" wide 3"thick and weighs 12 pounds. Silver colored stand included.

Thank you for looking.

Note the use of that interesting dialect known as Christian English. Previous similar bargains included a lump of rock and a pebble.

I went over to eBay to get a better look at it. As P.T. Barnum said, "There's a sucker born every minute." Maybe I'll go back in 9 days and see if any body actually bids on the nice blue rock. Then again, maybe not.

I am one stone short for the path in my backyard. So maybe...

US$115 seems a tad steep for a shellacked rock. I see they've limited the shipping options to North and South America, so it looks like they know where to find the suckers.

Evangelism, witnessing and similar activitites go by one name here—advertising, and is no different from spam for viagra, penis enlargement products and pornography. We do not take advertising. If you want to advertise your imaginary friend, please spend your own money on your own web space to do so. Any attempts to use the comments section for advertisements will be deleted, and the perpetrator barred, unless they are particularly stupid, in which case I reserve the right to pinch an idea from Teresa Nielsen Hayden and delete all the vowels.

This is not a contacts site. If you are looking for help regarding a particular path, I suggest The Witches' Voice, which does operate a contacts service.

The same applies if you are using a word processor to compose your comment, then copying and pasting the text—either turn off curly quotes and avoid using em-dashes, or edit your comment after pasting to get rid of them.
