Holy beans, Batman!

If the Virgin Mary can appear on a piece of toast …

then an appearance of the temporal future queen of England on a jellybean is hardly the miracle.

As an aside, I couldn’t be more uninterested in the impending nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton. Watching paint dry on a neighbor’s house would be as exciting. Never mind the gargantuan hype and commercialism that pales Christmas …

Back to the bean.

Story is that a 25-year-old British man popped open a jar from The Jelly Bean Factory. And lying there staring him in the face was the mango-flavored sweet bearing the likeness of Miss Middleton.

Hey, don’t shoot the messenger! I just report ’em!

Fortunately for the lad, he noticed the resemblance before the bean was lost to an, uh, worser fate. He stands to make a purty penny auctioning it off on eBay. Asking price: 500 pounds – 827 USD, 777 AUD, 1,030 NZD.

A mere pittance compared to the holy toast. That fetched $28,000.
