Those fake chocolate Easter Cthulhus that artist Paul Carrick created as an April Fool's joke are really going to get made! As long as this isn't another one of his practical jokes, that is. Carrick posted on his blog that:
A few weeks back I was painting a custom cthulhu statue for a client, and after priming it I had base-coated it a dark brown in order to give it an aged bronze look. Maybe it was the way the paint was drying, but it looked exactly like dark chocolate- my favorite! I mused about casting them in chocolate- and the prank was born.

The response to the joke (public and private) was larger and more positive than I had expected. So, now I am seriously working on Chocolate Cthulhus! A new sculpture is being created, and the nightserpent test kitchen will be opening soon. There goes my trim figure for beach season!!Don't mess with us again Paul...make these things!
