Immaculate Confection

Artist Cosimo Cavallaro has sculpted a naked 6-foot tall milk chocolate statue of Jesus. The sculpture was to debut Monday evening at the Lab Gallery inside Manhattan's Roger Smith Hotel, just four days before Christians mark the crucifixion of Jesus Christ on Good Friday.

Perhaps the Tom Waits song “Chocolate Jesus” inspired Cosimo.

Cavallaro’s artwork has upset many Catholics preparing for Holy Week.
"This is one of the worst assaults on Christian sensibilities ever," said Bill Donohue, head of the Catholic League, a watchdog group. "It's not just the ugliness of the portrayal, but the timing - to choose Holy Week is astounding."

I have to strongly agree with Mr. Donohue.

I think that Jesus should be immediately melted down in a double broiler.
Then, he should be poured over a giant bowl of Häagen-Dazs vanilla bean ice cream. Then, his holiness should be liberally covered with chopped nuts, sprinkles, whipped cream and a cherry on top.

Perhaps the Lord’s Day should be spelled Sundae!

Dig in!

christians don't want to be slapped in the face with the realization that Jesus had a penis. chocolate or otherwise. and as far as the hideousness of the imagery, WHA? did they think Martha Stewart organized the event. MY LORD! It must have been bloody wretched.
