CRAWLEY, W.Va. (AP) - A Greenbrier County man believes some recent good luck came from a higher power -- and that it revealed itself in the form of a Funyun.

John Mize -- a law clerk from Crawley -- says he recently found a Funyun under his car seat that was shaped like the Virgin Mary and baby Jesus.

Now an anonymous online bidder has committed to pay $609 for the onion-flavored snack food parcel.

Mize -- who offered the Funyun on e-Bay for 99 cents last month -- says they it may have helped him graduate from law school, pass the bar exam and land his dream job.

Now he hopes the Funyun will bring someone else good fortune.

Mize's Funyun find isn't the first edible artifact resembling a religious figure that has attracted Internet auction shoppers.

Internet casino www.goldenpalace.com has paid big bucks for several food items, including $28,000 for a grilled cheese sandwich bearing the image of the Virgin Mary and $1,200 for a Doritos chip that resembled the pope's hat.

You wanna split a bag of funyuns? :-)

And don't worry, we all have days that are easy and some that are not.

I got an outline of JFK on my wall a side view shows the outline of his head all the way down to his chest.

Wonder how much that could be worth?

personally myself I would have eaten it that way my whole body would have been blessed going in my mouth and well making a deposit later on in the bathroom ( nicely put) I hope...lol
