Today's Tom Tomorrow 'Toon Will Make Your Heart Melt, Like Butter

Today, Tom Tomorrow looks at the ward known as Iowa in our national loony bin and sees the butter sculpture competition at the Iowa State Fair. This took the blogger to a little indy film he saw in 2011 (-12) that starred Jennifer Garner before she began asking "What's in your wallet" in the continuous Capital One credit card commercials. The film was "Butter" and it revolved around the butter culture mania in Iowa. The Hillster and all of the Dumbo stumblebums are shown at the butter sculpture pavilion at the Iowa State Fair. If this is an exposure of the (fair & balanced) pursuit of nothing, so be it.
