Iowa State Fair Now Selling Deep Fried Butter

America sure is winning hard lately, isn’t it? Let me count the ways America is winning. Batshit Republicans, spineless Democrats, a tanking economy, rampant corruption, a terrible job market, widespread diabetes, corporate evil… I should stop before I get too upset over here. But not before adding one more: deep fried butter! Yes, the Iowa State Fair has degenerated to the point of instead of serving real food, they’re selling fat… dipped in fat… then fried in fat, then topped with sugar! Jesus. TC mark

    I at least understood the taste point for items like fried Twinkies & Oreos… but butter? Really? Ugh.

    Whenever someone takes a bite of butter-on-a-stick, it dribbles poopi all over the place.

    Hey it’s not too bad if they used natural ingredients.  It sure isn’t margarine.

    I care very little for corn dogs, or butter, or Iowa. But I clicked on this piece because the pic of the guy holding the corn dog was cute.

    Last year they had chocolate dipped bacon.  Personally, I only eat the cheese curds and drink the beer at the IA State fair.  I, also, gagged when I heard about this butter….situation.

    I’m away from America for 20 months, and my statement to my father, “Is it me, or is America fatter?” now has total relevance.

    And, for real, Iowa: stick to sweet corn and football.
