(Denver Post)   A good way to prepare for Easter is to create a sculpture of Jesus. Oh, did I mention it is made out of chocolate, and is anatomically correct?   ( divider line

I guess the 'artist' wanted to get a rise out of the Christian community. None of these pussies has the balls to make a sculpture of Allah, do they?!!! Let's see one of these 'artists' grow a pair & make a sculpture of Allah out of ham.

/bring it on beyotches!!!

I came for Tom Waits references. Thanks for not disappointing me miss_enthropic_biatch and logruszed.

"When the weather gets rough
And it's whiskey in the shade
It's best to wrap your savior
Up in cellophane
He flows like the big muddy
But that's ok
Pour him over ice cream
For a nice parfait"

JC is forgiving, but I would think he would raise an eyebrow about someone eating his chocolate...uh...junk...

c0dem0nkey:Maybe this chocosavior is his penance.

When you can't gain fame for being a good artist, gain fame for being a controversial one.

Cavallaro, who was raised in Canada and Italy, is best known for his quirky work with food as art: Past efforts include repainting a Manhattan hotel room in melted mozzarella, spraying 5 tons of pepper jack cheese on a Wyoming home and festooning a four-poster bed with 312 pounds of processed ham.

Is it just me or does he sound like an artistic version of Caligula?

Or mohmmaed really...

Ooh, suck on the saviour's chocolate balls.
Put'em in your mouth and suck'em.

Speaking purely as a professional who's made chocolate sculptures before, I have to admire what he's done here on a technical level. THAT is truly some impressive chocolate work. For the uninitiated, chocolate sculpture can be outrageously difficult, and unlike other forms of art, mercilessly unforgiving about otherwise trivial situations, like humidity, air temperature (God help you if you try to work with chocolate in a room over 70 degrees F), and even altitude.

Art wise? Meh, it's a statue of would have been wiser to make a chocolate loincloth to avoid controversy, but I, as a christian, think it's very cool someone did this during Holy Week.

what's next? Hershey's Crosses?

Don't's been done already! Plus you can buy molds and make your own!

Here's just ONE example.​alogProd ucts.jsp&event=link.itemDetails&demandPrefix=12&sku=5/683&prodCatId=37​7634&mod e=Browsing&erec=73&vap=true&Ne=90000&sp=true&cm_mmc=srchdex-_-Candy-_-​srchdex- _-srchdex&Ntk=all&Ntx=mode%252bmatchallpartial&N=377634&BP=8067&sd=CRO​SS-SHAPE D+SUCKERS

Maybe it's just me, but isn't there something a little blasphemous about a kid skipping down he street licking a crucifix lollipop?!

LOL I used to work in a drug store that sold Hershey chocolate crosses during Easter. Always made me giggle.

/comes in white chocolate too!
2007-03-30 11:44:02 AM  
were they chocolate salty balls?
2007-03-30 11:49:22 AM  
Wait, aren't Catholics the ones who believe communion bread actually turns into Christ, instead of being symbolic lik (IIRC) all the other sects do? So if this guy had some priest sanctify his sculpture, would this guy be less offended, or more offended?

/and why hasn't anyone made the 'mmmmm, sacralicious...' reference yet?
//That's what I came here to see.
///also waiting for someone to carve a Mohammad with bomb-turban out of spam...
2007-03-30 12:10:42 PM  
Hrrrm! I propose we make little white chocolate Muhammads and sell them for Muslim Holy Days!!!

/What could possibly go wrong?

As a practicing Catholic, I believe Jesus had a 13 inch cock.
My Jewish friends say it was no bigger then 5 and 1/2.
2007-03-30 01:57:16 PM  
6' tall? I bet that Jew was a lot shorter.
2007-03-30 02:00:29 PM  
Aw fark. I had this idea like, a month ago. Someone beat me to it. Jerks.

I think Robin Williams said it best:

"You can't have your kid biting the head of a chocolate Jesus. Then you spread rasberry jam on the ground, 'come on kids we're looking for Jesus'" delicious as he must taste.

My headline was better:

"Crying Catholics Cancel Cocoa Christ"

I can't believe no one has posted any Lebowski pics.

My headline was better:

Mine was "I'm going to need a bigger Easter basket"
