Your people want to make a statue in your honor. What will it be made out of and what victory will it commemorate?

My people?? Interesting. It will be made out of cheese (obviously it is a temporary yet tasty statue). And I would like it to commemorate (1) my pretzel-eating achievements (2) My snow-shoveling achievements and (3) my ability to complain and appreciate at the same time. Good luck representing all that tastefully in cheese.
