Smudge of Jesus sold

An oil stain on a garage floor that vaguely resembles the face of Jesus has fetched more than £750 in an online auction.



Deb Serio found the image on her garage floor in Forest, Virginia, and sold it on eBay for $1,525.69, reports the Daily Telegraph.

Ms Serio, a high school teacher, said she was surprised anyone wanted to buy the oily slab of concrete.

"I really never thought I'd get any (money), to be honest," she said.

She received hundreds of messages from around the world from people interested in the "smudge of Christ".

The family has now hired a contractor to remove the section of concrete.

The slab will then be delivered to the winner of the online auction, who is identified only as 'islandoffthecoast'.

An active Lutheran, Ms Serio considers the smudge a slightly odd occurrence, rather than a divine sign or miracle.

"There are some people who need this kind of thing to sort of start them on their faith journey. I don't," she said.

"That's why I don't mind parting with it."

Truly shows you how fucking dumb some people are...

Anyone who would pay any amount of money for what looks like a shit stain on a garage floor should be shot.



All bets are one unit ($50) unless otherwise noted.

Wanna make a quick buck? Make sure you look down everytime you finish using the facility. You might find the Mona Lisa! Mr. Green
