Washed In The Blood of the Veal 

From Mick Hartley:

Cairo: About 20,000 people converged on a south
Egypt village to be blessed by a calf born, they
believed, as God’s reply to the publication of the
Prophet Muhammad cartoons. Its skin folds were
said to have formed, “There is no God but Allah”.

As I mentioned in his comments, I live close to a small, Spanish supermarket which made the news a year or so ago for a frost-mark on their frozen foods cabinet door which put some people in mind of the Virgin Mary. People were lined up around the block for a glimpse until the market had gotten all the press they wanted and realized they weren't moving any guisantes congelado.

Of course, it's all fun and games until somebody gets their embassy torched.
