DES MOINES, Iowa – Plans for a Michael Jackson statue made of butter are churning up so many comments that Iowa State Fair organizers are putting the proposal to a vote.
Organizers announced days after Jackson’s death that they would display a sculpture of the King of Pop along with the annual butter cow, a popular fair attraction.
Spokeswoman Lori Chappell (CHAP’-uhl) says Jackson was to be part of a sculpture commemorating the 40th anniversary of Neil Armstrong’s moon landing, but the fair’s original announcement only mentioned the superstar known for his moonwalk.
Chappell says because of the overwhelming response about the Jackson sculpture, both positive and negative, the fair will conduct an online poll beginning Thursday.
People can vote at http://www.iowastatefair.org. Results will be announced July 17. The fair runs from Aug. 13 to 23.
I would think now is the time for a Michael Jackson butter sculpture. If not now, when?
