Pennsylvania’s Butter Sculpture

Only in Pennsylvania do we consider it to be a wise use of 1,000 pounds of butter to be turned into a sculpture of a beauty queen and a cow.

I hope we’ve invested in a bit more security this year. I’d hate to see a headline that Norwegians came in and stole our prized butter statue to take back home.

    Na, It happens all over the midwest. At the ohio state fair here, we have multiple butter sculptures, not just the traditional butter cow.

    That’s almost enough butter to fill a baked potato.

    I can see it now, a horde of windbreaker clad men all wearing horned touques and wafflestompers hiking over hill and sylvan dale brandishing K31 refurbs and spatulas.

    Voices raised in song;
    “Oh, a viking we shall go, a viking we shall go, hi-ho the dairy-o, a viking we shall go!”

      They’re Norwegians – we’d be invaded by people planning to ‘civilize us with a Krag’…

    There’s one at the State Fair in New York too.

  6. They do this at the State Fair of Texas, too. One year it was Marilyn Monroe. Another year it was Elvis.

    Heh, me and my friends Mr. Heckler and Mr. Koch will resist any “civilizing” efforts. We aim to misbehave.
