Who wouldn't want Jaromir Jagr to live on for eternity in the form of a "confection consisting primarily of sugar or honey and almond meal, sometimes augmented with almond oil or extract."

That is the Wikipedia entry on marzipan, which is the subject to of the latest tribute to our favorite formerly mulleted active hockey legend. The photo below is a statue of Jagr based in Tabor, Czech Republic. 

What comes to mind when one sees this besides, sweetness? Maybe yummy? If the maker of this statue wanted the New Jersey Devils forward to last for forever, maybe he would have made it with something other than candy?

Either way, wax or bronze are too boring. This is much better.
