Quakes, a Plague — Cue the Virgin Mary

Is it the end times? We haven't seen any locusts yet, but somebody believes they spotted Our Lady of Guadalupe on a griddle. 

The hottest thing on the griddle at the Las Palmas restaurant in Calexico these days isn't the food -- it's the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe that a cook said she saw on the griddle.

Restaurant manager Brenda Martinez said more than 100 people have flocked to the small town of Calexico on the California-Mexico border to gaze at the likeness of the Virgin Mary since it was discovered as the griddle was being cleaned. Among the awestruck was a group of masked Mexican wrestlers who arrived Thursday for an exhibition at a nearby swap meet.

Since the discovery, the griddle has been taken out of service and placed in a shrine in a storage room.
