Grilled Cheese Sandwich Sells For $28,000.00 On eBay
$28,000 Grilled Cheese Sandwich
$28,000.00 Grilled Cheese Sandwich
Remember in November 2004 when eBay annouced that a grilled cheese sandwich was auctioned off at $28,000.00? Diana Duyser, a freelance jeweler, said that she made the sandwich 10 years ago in 1994 and after taking a bite, she became spooked when she saw a womans face imprinted on the bread. She put the sandwich in a plastic container filled with cotton balls and left it on her night stand. Not a single speck of mold formed since and the sandwich did not crumble either.
Diana believed that the womans face is the Virgin Mary, the Mother of God. The company who placed the winning bid met up with Diana to confirm the item was not fake after eBay initially pulled the plug on the first auction stating it did not allow sellers to post jokes for bidding after eBay found out the item had a current bid price of a million dollars.
I wonder what ever happened to the sandwich? The owners did not say anything after receiving the piece of bread. Maybe it has immortal powers but it is the most bizarre piece of news that ever came from eBay.
