Mother Theresa "nun bun" stolen

Some blackguard made off with a cinnamon bun in the likeness of Mother Theresa on Christmas Day. The BBC reports that the "nun bun" was discovered in 1996 and was preserved in shellac in a glass case at a Nashville coffeehouse.

The Bongo Java coffee shop sold T-shirts, prayer cards and mugs with the bun's image until Mother Teresa wrote a letter asking the sales be stopped, before her death in 1997.

Mr Bernstein said the thief "went right for the bun", ignoring cash lying nearby.

"Unfortunately I think it's somebody who wanted to take it to destroy it," he said.
OK, I suppose it does look a little bit like her. But only a little bit, and she looks like she's gone through a few rounds with Lennox Lewis.

Anyway, what is it with these supernatural holy types putting their faces into buns and toast and fish-sticks and stuff? Wouldn't they rather appear in the crinkled pages of Vanity Fair, or something?
