Man selling Virgin Mary “Holy Dot” claims it’s not a hoax

I’m continually amazed at the ridiculous places that Jesus and Mary show themselves.

Turner man denies his Virgin Mary candy is a hoax — Lewiston-Auburn — Bangor Daily News — BDN Maine.

Duguay and his wife, Amy, discovered the orange candy a little over a week ago, after the new parents hit the Rite Aid in Auburn for snacks. Duguay said he ate a few of the gummy candies, felt the funny piece in his hand and showed it to his wife. On a lark, they nicknamed it “The Holy Dot” and listed it on eBay.

In a post titled, “A virgin dot? We think not!”, skeptically compared the Duguay’s photo to a small Virgin Mary candy mold sold on eBay by A World of Moulds in the United Kingdom.

The write-up was good for a laugh, but it wasn’t so, Duguay said.

“I bought the box unopened,” he said. “I have no idea if or how it could have been placed there . . . We did not modify the Dot one bit.”

In 42 bids, the auction was up to $215. If you were not the lucky buyer, now you know how to make one of your own, anyhow. Link to Dots candy information here.

    I’m sure whoever bought that thing could have found another way to show they were foolish and gullible without spending $215.

    Happens all the time – especially as Jesus looked just like a Gummi Bear.

    Does anyone ever really on any level ever think these things are real? The guys who exposed this hoax at also pointed out, i think i was them, but not matter that most of the ebay bids are not even real anyway. I know is full of these types of ebay stories. When will the madness end!

    Pareidolia does not equate to a sign from any supernatural entity. We had this issue in Tampa with the Virgin “appearing” on the windows of a building. Few outlets bothered to mention that the other windows of the building were stained in the same manner, one even resembled Buddha.

    Humorously, the building was next to a Mitsubishi dealership which was well known for dubious business practices. Was the spectral Virgin doing battle with the demonic dealership?

    @Phalin, not sure it is proper to bring Mitsubishi into the false use of the virgin mary for profit argument, but I’m guessing you have your reasons which are no doubt more legitimate than the virgin mary hoax stories. Round and round it all goes….
