and now for something completely different!

175 solid kilograms of Cadbury's delicious milk chocolate. . .
over 1000 hours in the forming. . .
Madame Tussaud's finest artists set aside their wax and went beserk!

yes! i'm talking about a chocolate statue of . . . . . .Sir Elton John! Its eerily realistic. . pretty much like Elton with a toasty tan! but perhaps a tad too glossy with the satiny sheen of carnuba wax covering his ample chocolateyness. http://www.eltonjohn.com/now/news/news.asp

What's next, chocolate Prince William? chocolate Donald Trump? In fact, why not get rid of the wax dummies and just go 'chocorama'?!!!

you know what's really odd? they took pictures of Elton's 'husband' posing with his partner's chocolate doppelganger. . oh boy.

so yeah, that's surreal but delicious! I love Cadbury's chocolate. Do you think they can trust the security? the general public? i would imagine that climate control is important for this particular work of art!

what's this world coming to? Elton's been immortalized in chocolate, he's writing show tunes and now he's doing Vegas?????!!!!!! what happened?????!!!!!! My friend, Ally http://www.supersimbo.blogspot.com was talking about Elton the other day. . so Elton seems to be in the news with the chocolate effigy and the Vegas gig, etc. Where's that prolific tunesmith? the hands that played Bennie and the Jets, Empty Garden, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, the voice that sang "Someone Saved My Life Tonight", "Don't Let The Sun Go Down on Me", "Tiny Dancer". . . is singing the papish "Circle of Life". . . . oh Elton. . . . and now Vegas? I used to admire you so!!! I once bought a custom made E.J. sparkly t-shirt! I put your pictures on the side of my wardrobe!! I listened obsessively to Captain Fantastic!!! You WERE Captain Fantastic!! I read the album's comic book insert a million times! I read and read and re-read your lyrics. . . you were right up there with Chicago and The Bay City Rollers for me!!!

Elton, you've gone old, squidgy and all bland and toothless. . there's no more bite to your songs!!! I know you don't need the money. . but come on!!!! throw me a frickin bone here! why not kick it for old time's sake?! use your lucky pencil, stand on your head. . tell Bernie to get with it. . come on Sir Cadbury Chocolot -- you can do it!!!

I told you this before, mom, but for everyone else reading this, did you know that the name 'Cadbury' means 'fat man's castle'? I read it on a surname meaning website! 'Cada' was Saxon for 'lumpy man' and 'bury' meant castle! Funny that it should be the name of a chocolate company, eh? If they made a chocolate Prince William, I'd buy one. Prince William is HOT!

Well then... OK, Fat Man's Castle chocolate is very good. One of my favs. I'd definitely take a bite of the chocolatey SirEJ if I could. Linds, let me know if you hook up with a Prince William. Even better.

heh heh lumpy man. .Fat Man's Castle chocolate!!!! good thing the folks at Cadbury don't announce this to the general public! imagine the sales figures after such an announcement??! HA!
that's a hilarious bit of trivia there. . and yeah, i'd be very tempted to take a bite out of any chocolate statue!!! mmmmm. . . .
