OH, SWEET JESUS
Artist Cosimo Cavallaro, who covered a Manhattan hotel room in mozzarella cheese in 1999, has cooked up another scheme to get his name out there.
This time he's made a 6-foot anatomically correct sculpture of Jesus ... out of 200 pounds of milk chocolate.
The 485,460-calorie Messiah has Esquire magazine listings all the nutritional facts of the chocolate Jesus that is scheduled to be unveiled to the public April 1.
The magazines claims you could live off this piece of junk food for more than eight months. It must be solid. But I'm wondering, why didn't Cavallaro use white chocolate? And, because the ears were always the first to go on my chocolate Easter bunnies, I'm wondering what part of this would you eat first?
Man cannot live by bread alone.
P.S. Obviously, for this blog the front view of the AP photo of the chocolate Jesus was cropped. And the bread shot was all I had to offer that was somewhat relevant from my photo archives.
