The Mask of the Brown Death

In my humble opinion, there's just not enough symbolic cannibalism involved with Easter. While other holidays require us to eat the various body parts of gods and/or martyrs, Easter has to settle for less-visceral fertility rituals. I mean, nobody's afraid of brightly colored eggs.

Contemporary food designers Bompas & Parr have stepped up to make your Easter holiday a little more unsettling. The London-based artists are offering chocolate death masks customized to look like ... well, whoever.
"Eat My Face is a hands-on-face service that will see us create an exact mould of you or your child, mistress or dog's face for that matter, in chocolate."
As a bonus, you get to keep the mould, which you can "display at home" or use to make other confections in your own kitchen. All for the low low cost of "price on request."

Is this an appropriate time to mention that I own a life mask of Jonathan Frid?
