Harry, Did You Stay up all Night Eating Butter?
As someone who went to
binge-drinking summer camp college in Wisconsin, I have a genuine soft spot for the Midwest. No other region of the country has so fully mastered the ridiculousness, perhaps even offensiveness that is American eating.
But Iowa, you have really outdone yourself this time. Allow me to present the real reason Rudy Giuliani skipped the Ames straw poll. No, he wasn’t scared of Mitt’s millions. There was a much more obscene sight there: Harry Potter carved out of butter.
Oh, Iowa State Fair. I thought you had hit your glutoness peak when you invented the deep-fried twinkie. You weren’t even close.
The only problem is, what are you gonna spread all that butter on? If only we had a giant loaf of bread, or a chocolate ice cream cake, or some medium-rare steak to spread that fatty goodness on. The solution after the jump.
America. An empire that will never fall.
