UPDATE: It appears that common sense has ruled the day. The “winning bidder” only has one bit of Ebay feedback, which in this type of auction is usually a pretty good indication of a fake/shill bid.
A couple in Turner, Maine made news recently with their discovery of a piece of Dots candy in the form of the Virgin Mary. Desmond and Amy Duguay claimed that they purchased a box of Dots candy at a local Rite Aid drug store and as a joke, put “The Dot” on the Ebay auction block. At last check it was apparently God’s will that this piece of divine dental destruction should sell in excess of $200. And who said the American Dream was dead?
Corporate Mal did, that’s who! We have uncovered evidence of a possible Dot fraud the likes of which has not been seen since Groupon tried to convice us all to buy their stock for half off the retail price, today only!

Now there is no way to know for sure what the real story is behind this piece of piousness. However, we can all agree that as long as there are people like the Duguays and a candy like Dots, America will always be the undisputed leader in delicious delusional devotions.
