Michael Jackson, immortalized in butter


Nothing’s more synonymous with the Iowa State Fair than a Michael Jackson statue made out of butter right?

Apparently, some Iowans disagree (HATERS!).

Immediately after Jackson’s death, Iowa State Fair officials announced that they would honor the King of Pop- who performed at the fair as part of the Jackson 5 in 1971- with a life-size, hand-churned, unpasteurized, artery-clogging butter statue. The butterizing is an honor at the fair, and is usually bestowed upon other Hawkeyes, like gold medal-winning gymnast Shawn Johnson.

Some people (again HATERS) didn’t WANT Michael enshrined in butter, so now it comes down to a vote.

Until 3 p.m. today, visit www.iowastatefair.org to place your vote for or against freedom and the American way. I hope you choose correctly, because who wouldn’t want to see this staring up from their corn on the cob:
