Holy Popsicles, Batman!

Chilean artist Sebastian Errazuriz will be handing out popsicles at his art opening this weekend at Gallery R’Pure in Manhattan’s Flatiron District… but these aren’t just any frozen treat.

These popsicles are made from holy wine AND have cross-shaped tongue depressors with the Anointed One stamped on them.

I think they’re just perfect for the summer, don’t you?

    ” As for the frozen wine, Errazuriz said, he concealed it in a cooler and
    took it into a church, where it was “inadvertently blessed by the
    priest while turning wine into the blood of Christ during the
    Eucharist.””

    Genius!

      So technically it’s really Jesus’s blood. COOOOOL… :-P

      I wonder if, like gravity or light, the effect of the Transubstantiation diminishes as the inverse of the square of the distance. If Errazuriz was sitting in the back, his winecicles might only have turned to au jus.

        My knee-jerk assumption is that distance doesn’t matter quite so much as the overall location. I’m thinking as long as it’s within the sacred bounds of the chapel, it’s just as effective no matter where the wine may be. ;)

    but on a more serious note: why not Tequila? huh?

    The artist is an atheist too.

    mmmmmmm…. sacrilicious!

  • OCRazor

    Cool, but I’m waiting for the smores on the communion wafers myself.

    • http://digitalatheist1.wordpress.com/ DigitalAtheist

      mmmmmmmmm… or at least some nice cheese… yes?

  • Annie

    It would be more green if the sticks were made of wafers… ;-)

    Oh, to be a fly on the wall.

    Strange ive tried freezing alcohol and it doesnt freeze,this is a set up,mind you i do like the sticks,i would think they will be collectors items in time

       wine will freeze if the alcohol content is low enough. many wines are able to be frozen.

    How can so many millions of people actually think that giving children pictures of someone being tortured is a good thing?

    Don’t get me started on those life size, full colour statues of the tortured bleeding victim of a more brutal age, scattered throughout Europe.

    It is sick and disgusting and should be X-rated!  oh yes, and why doesn’t Ratzinger care about the second commandment? 

  • Lamocla

    I get to lick Jesus! cool!

  • Marco Conti

    Should see how mad the Catholic League is about this. 

    Good.

  • Eric D Red

    But wouldn’t Pope-sicles be more appropriate?

    (Sorry, truly sorry about that)

  • The Other Weirdo

    You had me at alcoholism(the wine)  and cannibalism(this is my blood). No need to belabour the issue. :)

  • 69ingchipmunks

    You knelt for Jesus but now would you lick and drool for him?

    In the words of Kathy Griffin, “Suck it, Jesus!”

    Someone should make a jesus duche for all those who want jesus deep inside of them. Better yet a jesus dildo for both sexes that feel the need to have the holy spirt in them.. To far?

    • Deven Kale

       Not far enough, in my book. I’m thinking a Jesus/Pope tampon as well. lol

  • Robster

    Does the jesus flavour blood used in the frozen concoction also come in a powder? The dead bloke on the stick is what looks like a printed image! How cheap is that? Why not a fully molded plastic jesus with a sugar crown of thorns and removable, chewable nails? That would make it much more fun.
