Iowa State Fair has jumped firmly on the JK Rowling bandwagon in the run-up to this week's release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by announcing an audacious butter sculpture of the boy wizard, the Des Moines Register reports. Sculptor Sarah Pratt, who apparently took the helm as the fair's lead butter sculptress last …
I'd be more impressed if they made it from man butter but I guess you can't have everything.
the boy wizard
I wonder if the fine buttery artist will be using the images that can be found of the boy wizard as, er, 'dressed' for his role in Equus..
would certainly be more interesting to carve - those delicate curves could, I suspect, be quite tricky to get just right.
I don't know about the butter but the thought of this is making my stomach churn
Butter? That's a lot of toast.
How much milk did it take to make that much butter? I'm sure all those milk maids, churning for hours on end, will be proud of the end result.
We get ours some time between 11 am and 2 pm, according to the USPS. Delivered to our doorstep. Which means Carol will be reading it some time between 11:01 am and 2:01 pm. The Houston dog show is this weekend. Second largest in the country, maybe even larger than Westminster this year (I haven't seen the final entry count for conformation, never mind the other exhibitions like agility and flyball). I'm handling a dog (Pembroke Welsh Corgi) on Saturday and Sunday, so I won't be missing her. Wish us well, I think there's 40 dogs showing on Saturday.

And so goes the dream.
Re: With a curse in mind...
I can only assume that you meant to say "wang" instead of "wand," as clearly magic wands are nonsence (whereas magic wangs are all too real.)
I smell a copyright violation
Has the Iowa State Government got JKR's express written permission and paid the requisite $500,000,000,000.00 licence fee to be able to do this? Otherwise no doubt we'll see the copyright pigs' lawyers buttering sh*t sandwiches for all officials involved before it opens!
I believe my coat's in the hallway...
