That holy spud in fullVerily, the Lord moveth in mysterious ways, and nowhere has his mysteriousness manifested itself more clearly than in the land of fruits and nuts. Read on:

It was 7:30 PM, December 4th, 2005. The second Sunday of advent, in Joshua Tree, California. Personal Chef Karin Winkler started to prepare dinner. While thinking about upcoming Christmas, she was peeling and cutting a potato. Everything appeared to be normal. When she was peeling and cutting the second potato in half, a miracle happened: the symbol of a perfectly shaped holy cross appeared on both halves of the potato.

Yup, it's the heart-warming tale of the holy spud - a sign from God to Karin Winkler that the world should pursue peace.

And where better to pursue world peace than on eBay, which is where the divine tuber will be appearing from the third Sunday of advent, or 11 December for those of you who skipped church last Sunday.

As Winkler puts it: "We want that the right person can own this piece of a true miracle this holiday season and be very happy this Christmas."

Yes, we're sure Golden Palace Casino will be very happy with this simulacrum, and if the seller needs an extra injection of cash, she could always have the online gambling outfit's logo tattooed on her butt. ®

A tuberous ta very much to Lyndsey Thomas for the tip-off.
