Chocolate Jesus

Posted by Richard on March 30, 2007

Oh boy, oh boy, this means trouble:

The Easter season unveiling of an anatomically correct chocolate sculpture of Jesus Christ, dubbed "My Sweet Lord" by its creator, has infuriated Catholics preparing to observe some of their holiest days of the year.

The 6-foot sculpture by Cosimo Cavallaro was to debut Monday evening, four days before Christians mark the crucifixion of Jesus Christ on Good Friday. The final day of the exhibit at the Lab Gallery inside Manhattan's Roger Smith Hotel was planned for Easter Sunday.

The naked Jesus is supposed to be displayed in a street-level window.

I expect that mobs of young Catholics in New York and elsewhere around the country will burn down the Roger Smith Hotel, along with some randomly selected secular institutions and synagogues, mosques, and ashrams. And evangelical Christians all over the world will riot, carrying signs with slogans like "Crucify those who insult Jesus!" and beating up secular humanists.

Do you think the Pope will call on the United Nations Security Council to convene and condemn this display? 

Actually, Cosimo Cavallaro's sculpture may be the biggest chocolate Jesus, and it's almost certainly the only one that's naked and anatomically correct, but it's nowhere near the first. Here, let Tom Waits tell you about it:

UPDATE: Well, that didn't take long. The hotel has canceled the display. I think all the looting, overturned cars, and burned-out buses frightened them.
