Duyser listed the holy sandwich last week and it became an instant hit with the faithful. In a few days the eBay page which held the auction for this one of a kind relic had been viewed almost 100,000 times and the bidding topped $22,000. But the auction was martyred. eBay held an inquisition last Sunday and deemed the auction a heresy against their doctrine which states "thou shalt not list jokes on eBay". But when Duyser confessed her true faithfulness to eBay, having been a member for over 2-years, and swore a holy oath that the divine sandwich was no joking matter, the high priests at eBay deemed it worthy of auction and the bidding resumed.
Although heretics have tried to confuse eBayers with false idols, such as a grilled cheese sandwich carrying the image of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, the faithful have resumed their devotion to the holy sandwich that the Blessed Mother visited upon. One faithful bidder has such devotion that at press time the relic was selling for $99,999,999.00.
Here is Diana Duyser's testament, followed by a link where you can attend the auction mass and look upon an image of the holy sandwich.
