GoldenPalace.com buys sheet metal Jesus

MANCHESTER, Conn., March 9 (UPI) -- The Internet gambling site GoldenPalace.com is adding to its collection of strange stuff -- a piece of sheet metal with the images of Jesus and Mary.

The gaming site, based in Canada, paid $1,500 on eBay for the sheet metal being sold by Thomas Haley, who found it while unloading supplies at Hardy's Hardware in Manchester, Conn.

The slab joins a grilled cheese sandwich with the image of the Virgin Mary and what are being called the Holy Pierogi and the Divine Pretzel.

"There is no doubt that an image of a face appears in this item," said GoldenPalace.com Chief Executive Officer Richard Rowe. "Whether it's Jesus, Jim Morrison, or anyone else is in the eye of the beholder. This item has definitely sparked interest and debate however. It will make a great addition to the collection of religious items we will be taking on tour later this year. People will see and decide for themselves."

The company also owns Britney Spears' pregnancy test and Pope Benedict XVI's Volkswagen.
