Virgin Mary Seen on Griddle

The hottest thing on the griddle at the Las Palmas restaurant these days isn't the food - it's the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe that a cook says she saw on the griddle.

Restaurant manager Brenda Martinez says more than 100 people have flocked to the small town of Calexico on the California-Mexico border to gaze at the likeness of the Virgin Mary since it was discovered as the griddle was being cleaned.

Among the awe-struck was a group of masked Mexican wrestlers who arrived on Thursday for an exhibition at a nearby swap meet. One, known as Mr. Tempest, says: "This is amazing. It's a true miracle."

Since the discovery, the griddle has been taken out of service and placed in a shrine in a storage room.

Who is the Vigin Mary? That sounds kinda dirty actually. This is an awesome picture with the wrestlers. You could have just posted that and I would have been content.

That *really* looks like something else to me.

At the very least, it's just a hooded figure.

That's just. Wow.

I agree squidface - that's no Mary.
