When Beyoncé announced her pregnancy in February, there’s no way we could’ve known that it’d be an iconic image of 2017, if not for all ages (maybe a slight exaggeration).
So how do you pay tribute to a piece of pop culture art? In motherfucking cheese, obviously. Specifically, 44 lbs of mild cheddar. Sculptor David Bradley and the food art team The Robin Collective were commissioned to promote the East Village Cheese and Wine Festival. The cheesy tribute will be submitted at the East Village E20 Cheese Carving Championships.
I swear to all things holy, if someone makes a fromage homage of Adele and it’s submitted in the same championship, I will burn that mother down. Also, cheddar? I get that it’d be an easier medium to sculpt with, but Bradley really airballed it by not going with “Brieyoncé.”
Also, in horrifying sculpture news, a new sculpture was unveiled at Madeira International Airport (now renamed Aeroporto Cristiano Ronaldo.) The airport is named after the famous football (not American hand egg type) star Cristiano Ronaldo. The resemblance is uncanny.
Oh. That’s who it’s supposed to be? Well, this is embarrassing. I thought it was Sloth from Goonies.
I think we need to declare a moratorium on famous athletes being immortalized in artistic mediums whether as an appreciation piece or because of legal involvement.
