Looks like this potato has had a narrow escape from its life of being mashed and ingested.

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.

And Ms. Winkler saw the sign of the Lord and knew what it was telling her. PUT IT ON EBAY! That's right, you can get your hands on this holy little potato on the third Sunday of Advent (that's on December 11th for you heathens out there). So rejoice, all! And maybe you should think about swearing off spuds at your Christmas celebration this year.
