Last week I sent out a tweet – alerting my followers that Michael Jackson would be carved out of butter and on display at the Iowa State Fair as part of a long-standing butter sculpting tradition.
Then organizers released a clarification. Jackson would be part of a larger sculpture depicting the 40th anniversary of Neil Armstrong’s moon walk. The sculpture would feature an astronaut, flag, moon and the pop star doing his most famous dance move – the moon walk.
Fair organizers say Jackson was also picked for his role in fair history. The Jackson 5 performed at the Iowa State Fair in 1971.
Now, after mixed feedback on the controversial star’s inclusion, organizers are putting it to a vote. Voting starts in the online poll tomorrow and runs through July 16.
Whether you love it or hate it, the only way to influence the outcome is to vote.
