Something that sounds like joke ...

but isn't...

The hottest thing on the griddle at the Las Palmas restaurant these days is not the food – it is the image of the Virgin Mary 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 since it was discovered as the griddle was being cleaned.

Among the awe-struck was a group of masked Mexican wrestlers who arrived for an exhibition.

One, known as Mr Tempest, said: “This is amazing. It’s a true miracle.*”

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