Culinary Iconography - Fish Bone Jesus

There seems to be an endless supply of stories about deity sightings in food! Even nasty ol' foodscraps and fishbones! (This one sort of looks like Scrooge's Ghost of Christmas Past more than Jesus to me!)

Couple Says Fish Bone Bears Jesus Image
Couple Says Bone Brought Good Luck
October 27, 2005

An Oklahoma couple who says a fish bone bears the image of Jesus is selling it on eBay.The Newmans said they received the fish bone from a friend 10 years ago, and they've had good luck ever since. Now, they said it's someone else's turn.There is a legend that the type of fish the bone came from, a sailcat, was chosen by Jesus to remind people of what he went through.The skeletal remains are now up for auction on eBay with a starting bid of $29.95.
