California Based Designer Offers Do-It-Yourself Grilled Cheese Virgin Mary Toast Kit
Article Editor: Carly Zander
LOS ANGELES, Calif. - November 17, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Christopher Curry, Web Designer and Technology Consultant for Shrimpo LLC, has announced the creation of the "Blessed Grilled Cheese Virgin Mary Creation Kit" for sale on eBay (eBay item: 5536183757).
The kit, with an opening bid of $3,500, offers the ability for the bid winner to create their own "holy toast" in a sandwich kit that includes: bread, toaster, two bottles of Holy Water and detailed instructions. Curry reaffirms that the Blessed Grilled Cheese Virgin Mary Creation Kit is not a joke, but will actually be created, blessed by a Catholic priest and shipped to the winning bidder.
Questions for the Blessed Grilled Cheese Virgin Mary Creation Kit are pouring into the eBay site and range from the blasphemous to the curious. "This is the most disgusting thing I have ever seen posted on eBay," writes one member. Curry has been responding publicly, on the eBay page, to most of the questions on the site.
"I believe that God exists everywhere and in everything," says Curry. "He and the Virgin Mary therefore must exist in sandwiches created through my kit. My sandwiches are no different than others on eBay that cost so much more. This one lets people create their own Holy sandwiches to distribute on their own."
Christopher Curry, and his company Shrimpo LLC, is no foreigner to parody or controversy: on September 11, 2001 he has made news previously when it announced that it had developed a software mechanism to take control of Osama Binladin family's official website, whose domain registration expired simultaneously with the tragic events of September 11, 2001. "The controversy remains whether the 9/11 expiration dates were just a remarkable coincidence or if this truly was a warning code," said Christopher Curry,
Principal of Shrimpo LLC and Internet technology consultant. The Binladin website now ponders the question and irony of Osama's family domain name expiring on the very same day that he attacked America. His experiences will be included in an upcoming documentary 'Bin Laden: A Dynasty of Terror,' Joel Soler's follow up film to his successful 'Uncle Saddam.'
Christopher Curry and Shrimpo LLC are a consultancy group focused on streamlining business communications between the human interface and technology.
