Sweet News

"It's the first time I've ever heard of anything like this."

This from Capt. Randy Berner after rescuing a twenty-one year-old man from a tank of chocolate. The man had gone in to unplug it and was sucked into the sweet confection in it's magma form.

"It was pretty thick. It was virtually like quicksand," Berner said, and co-workers, police and firefighters were not able to get him out until the chocolate could be thinned out.
the police captain said.

In other chocolate news, the Virgin Mary has made another appearance - this time in the form of solidified chocolate drippings. Coincidence? Most probably.

And here, a way to give your heart to someone in an anatomically correct chocolate form.

That's exactly what I thought. We must be dealing with Philistines.

Well, it's certainly not a virgin if it's been dripping.

Personally, I'm going for the "brain treats" at the pushindaisies site. Mmmm...

When I saw it, I thought: bronzed driftwood.

And chick, I loooooove the brain treats at pushindaisies. Anatomically correct mini-brain for your eating pleasure? Is this not a confection created by the chocolate gods?
