Sparkle Pony's Advice for Companionship-Challenged Mary Fans


CBNNews.com - A Houston elementary cafeteria worker discovered the image of the Virgin Mary on a cookie sheet pan.

On Ash Wednesday, Lupe Rodriguez was scrubbing pans in the schools cafeteria when she discovered the image.

As she continued scrubbing the pan Rodriguez said the image kept emerging and growing until she couldn't believe what she was seeing.

Now a shrine has been made in the honor of the Virgin Mary image on the cookie sheet and people are beginning to flock to see her image.

You know, I first heard about the above story from Pony Pal™ John, and it really got me thinking...

Are you Catholic? Lonely? Would you like oodles of new friends? Lucky for you, it's super-easy (and fun!) to game this system: simply start with a Mary-shaped cookie (or pizza, or meatloaf, whatever), bake, and then share your new resultant Marystain™ with the world. Why leave it to chance? It may take a few tries to get a perfectly winsome grease icon, a stain which most perfectly suggests Marian grace and holiness, but it'll be totally worth it. Tasty, too!

At first glance, to me this looks much more like Anne Boleyn. I suppose, however, that random images of decapitated former Queens Consort provide only limited media coverage and resultant attention in comparison to the BMV....

Sorry, I see fangs. I think it's Drusilla from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and I think it means there's gonna be a new Joss Whedon film any time now!

(See what a little faith will do for ya? I feel better already!)

I see the outline of franks n' beans. And I don't mean the Thursday menu alternate choice.

Or maybe it's a teletubbie.

Ok, I have discovered what it is: Trucknutz

Which I didn't know about until I learned that they could become illegal

My boyfriend and I found a lube stain on our bedsheets that looks like the Shroud of Turin. Should we call the Catholic church?

It looks like a joystick from a 1980's vintage video game.

Or that's what I'd say if there were young children present.

How many people have to show up to qualify as "beginning to flock"? A gaggle? A passel? Or was it just a smattering, and CBN News was being nice to Lupe, her being all Mexican and minimum wage working and named after the Virgin of Guadalupe and stuff.

When can we go back to Elvis sightings?

For the European market, may I suggest "Mariaschmutz"(TM)?

Also, congrats on She-Joker(TM) - two years perhaps, but well worth the wait. Please clarify though: does is it apply only to the First Joker or to the Ruby-Cheeked Carolingian Jokeress as well?

Wasn't there a big blob of Mary-chocolate at a candy store last year?

I wonder if there's profit to be made in arranging introductions.
