Madame Tussauds Has Nothing On The Iowa Fair Baraf August 19, 2008 Bizarre, Celebrities 3 Comments I’m sure we have all been inspired by the Olympics this week, but the state of Iowa is taking it a bit far. Apparently gymnast Shawn Johnson has instilled so much pride in her home state that they have decided to honor her by carving her likeness out of butter. Seems a bit odd to me, but to each his own I guess. I just hope Michael Phelps doesn’t stop by, or he might try to incorporate “butter Shawn” into his 12000 calorie a day meal plan! Via Serious Eats.

Ew! I like Shawn Johnson, but yes, this is a little odd! Reply Josh September 24th, 2008 lol, i like in iowa, originally from Los Angeles. The Iowa State Fair loves the “butter cow” which is a cow sculpted from butter and shown. Looks kinda neat. Then we got all riled up about Johnson and you can see how things just spun out of control. I did see the project however. The muscle tone is nice! Oddly I suppose if you ate her yours wouldn’t be. Who says you are what you eat?!
