We're used to such well-known celebrities as Jesus and the Virgin Mary mysteriously appearing on slices of toast - but now, an even more miraculous apparition has manifested itself on someone's breakfast. The glorious 'Hope Toast' features the beatific visage of St. Barack of Chicago, the President-Elect of Change.
Naturally, it is being sold on eBay.
The seller says describes the wonder-toast by saying: 'Barack Obama has miraculously appeared on a piece of toast I was preparing for breakfast. This is a one-of-a-kind item to celebrate his win as US President.'
In case that sounds a little vague, he goes on to add: 'The item is one piece of Wonder Bread that has been toasted. Nothing has been added to the bread - no butter or oils.'
The divine image, which is completely plausible and in no way faked, shows Obama The Redeemer in his most familiar pose, gazing upwards into the future with an expression of wise, empathetic determination. The image is well known to the faithful, having been captured by artist Shepard Fairey in his popular series of religious icons.
As of the time of writing, the Hope Toast has attracted one bid, of $20.
