A Meditation on Steve Jobs and the Miracle of the French Toast

Hot off this week’s iPad 2 announcement, not to mention Glee’s recent “Grilled Cheesus” episode, an image of Steve Jobs miraculously appeared on a slice of French toast:

Pomaire, Chile — By mid-morning, the line was already snaking through the narrow streets of Pomaire, about 85 miles west of Santiago, Chile. Hundreds of people — young and old, locals and foreigners, rich and poor — waited patiently for their turn to see the miracle now known as “The Toast.”

It was just days before that Andrés Alvarez, a local potter, gazed at the French toast his wife Martina had prepared for his breakfast. He couldn’t believe his eyes.

“‘I say to Martina, I know this man,” Alvarez recalls, “this is the famous American computer man. I wonder why he is on my toast.”

The man, of course, is Apple CEO Steve Jobs.

Seriously, you can’t make this up…

  1. FYI, you might want to check the date on the original article and note that it is from May of 2010.

    Not sure why it is being promoted by Scoopertino again, a year later…
