Every year I used to a get a chocolate bunny for Easter. They were about a foot tall and were made of a hollow chocolate shell with colored candy eyes. I could never bring myself to eat it...probably because it was looking at me with those colored candy eyes. But what would you do if you got a life size chocolate pope? Well, that's exactly what Pope Francis got from and Italian chocolatier Mirco Della Vecchia. The chef formed the choco pontiff from 1.5 tons of chocolate. Francis was given the confection monstrosity during an audience with Della Vecchia. But what the hell is he going to do with it? Could you eat a 1.5 ton statue of yourself? Knowing Francis he will probably donate it to hungry orphans. But then those poor kids have to decide what part they are going to eat of the jolly pontiff.

There was a psychological test conducted in the 70's that claimed to diagnose certain psychological states depending on which part of a chocolate bunny you ate first. If you ate the feet first you had low self esteem, if you ate the ears first you were narcissistic, if you ate the tail first you had latent homosexual tendencies, etc. I wonder what it says about you depending on which part of the pope you eat first? Either way I'm pretty sure you are going to hell.
