June 12 (UPI) — Kraft is auctioning off the perfect gift for the “cheesy” dad who has everything — a custom cheese sculpture of his head.
The food giant, known for its wide-range of cheese products, posted an auction on eBay offering a “custom cheese sculpture of your cheesy great dad for Father’s Day.”
The auction, which ends Tuesday afternoon, will give the top five bidders the opportunity to submit photos of their dads to be transformed into cheese sculptures “by bona fide cheese artists, who just so happen to be at the top of their game in the high-stakes world of professional cheese sculpting.”
The auction’s description explains the traditional correlation between fatherhood and cheese.
“Odds are, at one point or another, your dad has exhibited cheesy behavior, i.e., cheesy jokes/cheesy shirts/cheesy music/any combination thereof,” the description states.
The company wrote that it believes “your old man’s cheesy greatness should be celebrated.”
“Which is why we’re offering to commemorate your dad with a big ol’ block of Kraft cheese sculpted into his likeness,” the auction states.
Kraft said the top five bidders must submit photos by Wednesday morning to ensure delivery by Father’s Day.
All proceeds from the auction are being donated to Feeding America, “the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization.”
The company included some disclaimers in the auction description:
“* Sculptures may vary by artist and their muse. (Your dad’s a muse!)
* Some men are chiseled from marble, but your dad will be sculpted from cheese – cheese that, like your dad, is not meant to be consumed.
* PLEASE DO NOT EAT.
* Seriously, don’t eat it.”
