That idea melted away

When the Iowa State Fair arrives, don't expect to see Michael Jackson's likeness in butter:

“We started hearing concerns from the public that he wasn’t an Iowan and didn’t have a connection to the fair,” said Lori Chappell, the fair’s marketing director, explaining why organizers ultimately put the question to a public vote.

Technically, the Jackson Five DID perform at the Iowa State Fair in 1971. But I guess the people of Iowa decided that Jackson was just too weird.

No comment on how odd the whole idea of butter sculpture is in the first place.
