A Meditation on Steve Jobs and the Miracle of the French Toast

Hot off this week’s iPad 2 announcement, not to mention Glee’s recent “Grilled Cheesus” episode, an image of Steve Jobs miraculously appeared on a slice of French toast:

(via scoopertino.com…)

Pomaire, Chile — By mid-morning, the line was already snaking through the narrow streets of Pomaire, about 85 miles west of Santiago, Chile. Hundreds of people — young and old, locals and foreigners, rich and poor — waited patiently for their turn to see the miracle now known as “The Toast.”

It was just days before that Andrés Alvarez, a local potter, gazed at the French toast his wife Martina had prepared for his breakfast. He couldn’t believe his eyes.

“‘I say to Martina, I know this man,” Alvarez recalls, “this is the famous American computer man. I wonder why he is on my toast.”

The man, of course, is Apple CEO Steve Jobs.

Seriously, you can’t make this up…
