Chocolatiers see image of Virgin Mary in lump

As a chocolatier to the rich and famous, Martucci Angiano has posed with many celebrities.

But on Thursday she held in her hand a figure that dazzles her more than any Hollywood star: a 2-inch-tall column of chocolate drippings that workers at her gourmet chocolate company believe bears a striking resemblance to the Virgin Mary.

That's nothing. I once saw a chunk of steak that looked exactly like the "Millennium Falcon." Right down to the gun turrets.

It's a piece of chocolate!

Seriously, these cases of simulacra are just getting ridiculous. This made the news why? :P

jezzie -- Well, I thought the choco chunk in the picture really really DOES look like the VM. (Until I read the caption, I first thought the picture of the VM the woman was holding for comparison WAS the simulacrum and thought HOAX! Looks like it was painted!) :-D

OK then, I'll amend my statement...
It's a incorrectly tempered piece of chocolate! :o)

It's not a bad simulacrum. At least, I've seen worse.
