I love chocolate Easter eggs, but wow!

Guylian Easter eggYou've probably already seen it, but I have got to share. It's a bit of a tragedy about it not being eaten. Seems a bit of a waste.
From IOL South African News:
World's biggest Easter egg cannot be eaten
St Niklaas - A Belgian city has entered the Guinness Book Of World Records with the biggest Easter egg ever. The Belgian chocolate producer Guylian made the chocolate egg with at least 50,000 bars on behalf of the city of St Niklaas. The egg stands 8.32m high and beats the record of Kwazulu-Natal in South Africa in 1996. That egg was 7.65m high. Twenty-six craftsman worked together for 525 hours to build the egg. They needed 1,950kg of chocolates. Alderman Urbain Vercauteren of the city of St Niklaas said the egg wasn't meant to be eaten. He said: "After a week outside in all weather conditions, I don't think it would be very tasty."

FYI, those metric figures above are converted below:
50,000 bars = 1562.5 buttloads of bars
8.32m = 25'11"
7.65m = 23'10"
26 craftsmen x 525 hours = 13,650 man-hours
1,950kg = 4,290lb or a 2005 Cadillac Town Car Sedan sans tires.


Pointing Evil MonkeyA little Easter bonus (an Easter egg if you will):
IF YOU CLICK HERE, YOU WILL LAUGH AND BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF FOR IT
Seriously, you'll think you're a terrible person, and so will I.

I'm not ashamed. And I was laughing...on the inside.
