Sweet Victory

What did you do over the holidays? Whatever it was, I'm pretty sure it wasn't quite as cool as this: Tolkien's Battle of Pelennor Fields recreated ... in candy. Choice quips from the post include:

"For two days the evil host, under the brutal licorice fist of the Witch King of Angmar has bombarded the ancient city with stone and fire."

"This is the Tower of Ecthelion. If a candy tower could be measured in units of pimpness, this candy tower would be off the fucking charts. And if that wasn’t pimp enough, in front you can clearly see the White Tree of Gondor, which I made out of white chocolate pretzels. Give me my Nobel Prize now, thankyouverymuch."

I'm not linking a pic here because it would be totes uncool of me to hotlink this artiste's work and steal his bandwidth, but this is really something you ought to see for yourself. Licorice battering rams! Gummy bears! Circus peanuts for elephants! Awesome.
