The Ohio State Fair is upon us, which means a few of things: Glorious candid shots of John Kasich enjoying the festivities, fried foods (including fried tacos this year), and butter sculptures. On the latter front — hoo boy, are fairgoers in for a dazzling display of dairy design. By our untrained eye, a generous fuckton of butter was used to create this year's centerpiece, which is an ode to fueling up high school athletes with delicious, nutritious and thirst-quenching chocolate milk, the official beverage of the Ohio High School Athletic Association and a way more visually stimulating subject for a sculpture than water. The real highlight here, in addition to the sheer volume of butter used and the artistic skill needed to shape it to look like a cow, is that this is the first time a color additive has been used in the process. Butter!
