Image Of Virgin Mary Appears At Florida Hamburger Restaurant

virginIf the Virgin Mary really did materialize in this amazing-sounding restaurant, I think I might be open to Christianity. Report from the Tampa Bay Observer:

Now the Virgin Mary’s likeness has popped up on a stainless steel wall inside Hamburger Mary’s, an Ybor City restaurant with customers more likely to show up for gay karaoke nights and celebrity drag-queen shows than religious revelations.

“These two ladies in one of the booths saw the image during Sunday brunch,” said day manager Melanie Todd, who goes by the name Melanie Minyon (pronounced like mignon) when performing in blue wigs and over-the-top sexy gowns at the restaurant’s nighttime drag shows. “One of them was in tears she was so moved, and they were both carrying on and taking pictures.

“Now, we serve all-you-can-drink Bloody Marys for Sunday brunch,” Todd said, “so I think it’s safe to say there are lots of visions being seen around here then. Let’s just call it a tequila afternoon.”

    That’s not the Virgin Mary, that’s a muddled version of Munch’s “Scream.”

    …we should also note that Zeus was known to come to a young maid in the form of a golden shower inorder that she might conceive.

    Looks more like Kenny from South Park, if you ask me.

    Or the killer from I Know What You Did Last Summer.

    I’m honestly sick of hearing the bullshit of I saw Jesus in my sock, I saw Mary on a window, I saw the devil in a painting. What you think was Jesus in your sock is just a set of wrinkles, Mary is just a smudge on the window from cleaning/not cleaning, the devil is are splotches on a canvas. The figure’s you are claiming to see are nothing more than your eye’s creating the image’s. It’s no different than seeing a bunny in the fucking cloud’s!

    I actually go to this place from time to time, but haven’t been there since this showed up.

    What’s not exactly clear from the article is that this is more of a “straight friendly” gay establishment than anything else. That’s my opinion of the place, at least.

    Some of the Drag Queens who used to perform at Tracks and Cherokee appear at Hamburger Mary’s now, including Joey Brooks.

    I sincerely doubt that anyone who works at the place thinks that this is an actual miracle. I’m sure they’re laughing at the irony of the Mother Mary showing up at a gay establishment named “Hamburger Mary’s” and happily basking in the free media exposure.
