Big salty virgin

Freeway MarySalty freeway run-off has rarely been as worshipped as the lucky patch of concrete under the Kennedy Expressway in Chicago. Hundreds of people with nothing better to pay homage to are flocking to the no-parking area to see what they believe is a vision of the Virgin Mary seeping from a crack in the freeway.
You can have your Tortilla Jesus, your Chapati Christ or even grab a gander at a two-for-one when condensation on a window shows the world Mary holding her infant and they’re both literally all wet. But how can you compare any of those miracles with a true miracle like this one?
I mean, please, tortillas and unleavened Indian bread are certainly delicious, but what are those compared with a yellow stain on a freeway underpass? Something like that doesn’t occur every day! Jesus!
