Re: Melts in the stable, not in your mouth....
i never fail to be amazed at the things people to come up with to do - but it's really pretty neat. it reminds you that you never really know what wonderful things are inside another person.
this is getting me into a philosophical mood - the video reminds me of one i saw about a group of Indian artists building an Aiyanar horse. these are life-sized clay horses that are built around a village for the god Aiyanar, who uses the horses to ride around and protect the village. The horses are made during an annual festival; making them is a special skill, and it is done very carefully, with great respect, as it is seen as something done for the community. in an odd sort of way, one can see a fair butter cow as something rather parallel, although perhaps the meaning of the ritual has been lost to the iowans....

You know, every year at the Ohio State Fair, they have butter sculptures. One year they did Dave Thomas, of Wendy's fame (Wendy's originated in Columbus, where the fair is held).
I really thought we had localized and isolated this phenomenon so it didn't spread. Thanks for the alert, Emsworth!

Butter... spread... that's almost a joke, son! You're sure churning them out, aren't you, Jenn? (Good to see you're still with us, by the way.)
