Blasphemy or Miracle?

MIRACLE CHIPS
As I rest a slice of whole wheat bread into my toaster, I wonder if today will be the day a miracle occurs. How shocked would I be - as the bread is alchemized from soft to firm toasty matter - should the face of a historic religious figure materialize in the grains?
Not to worry. My mind is still intact - at least for now. 
The fertile mind of artist, John Baldessari has taken anthropomorphism from toast to chip  and his experiences with other-worldly wonders are documented in the book, Miracle Chips - Guaranteed Fresh, published by Steidl (little Steidl, softcover housed in a sleeve, published, September 2010).
If humor is miraculous, you will find yourself snickering at one miracle chip after another as you turn the pages of this entertaining book.
