The Butter Cow is running for US President!

Can you believe this? And no, you don’t need to check your calendars, today’s not April Fool’s Day. It’s official, the Butter Cow is running as a candidate in the 2012 US presidential elections. What a great idea! This has to be the best news I’ve heard all week!

I mentioned a few days ago that the Iowa State Fair is celebrating the 100 years of the butter cow this month. Well, a few people with an excellent sense of humor have decided that the best way to celebrate this centennial was to have the butter cow run for president – “a perfect candidate for imperfect times.” The butter cow candidate even has a brand new website where you can read more about the campaign platform, vote for your favorite candidate, and even order some “butter cow for president” T-shirts! Ugh, I’m so, so tempted to get one right now…
