Butter or not? You decide.

July 8, 2009 1 Comment

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.

    Enough with M.Jackson. He is dead so leave him that way. Why isn’t there a plan to make a statue for Farrah or Billy May?? Let them all rest in peace.
