It’s a fishy story, but the woman telling it believes it's pure gold. The Florida resident says the markings she found on a Goldfish cracker are a direct message affirming her Christian faith.

“I believe that it’s a sign, a sign from God,” Patti Burke told WKMG. “He is still in our life every day, and he wants to show that to his people.”

It's not quite manna, but in Burke's eyes it's a manifestation of her faith.

The cracker in question has two markings, or imperfections, on its surface. Burke says the first marking is of a cross with a circle around it. The second marking, near the head of the fish, represents a golden crown.

“When I picked this one up, I knew he was special,” she said. “Something I’ve never seen before out of all the Goldfish I’ve eaten.”

Burke admittedly has been working from a large sample size, consuming between two and three pounds of the crackers per week. :| She says she eats the small crackers individually, examining each one for the optimal amount of savory coating.

Burke now carries her special cracker in an earring box padded with gauze. But she wasn’t immediately convinced it was a sign from God. At first, she thought maybe she had won a special promotion from cracker manufacturer Pepperidge Farm.

“They called me back and said there’s no way this could have been printed like that in the factory,” Burke told KSAT. “They said it sounds like something miraculous happened and we don’t know how it happened.”

Some factory workers are probably laughing their asses off right now.

That's what Apple and Microsoft should do next time there's a defective product. It's not a defect, it's a sign from God.

According to some of the posters here there are no defective products from either company :D

If I worked for a company like this I'd purposefully put "religious signs" on my product randomly just to see the crazy people's reactions. I love that this woman is now carrying a goldfish cracker in a jewelry box. Perfectly normal, everyone. Nothing to see here. :laugh:

I think it's a sign too. A sign that someone has gone utterly stupid.
