Ohio State Fair butter sculpture honors 'A Christmas Story'
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The butter sculpture at this year's Ohio State Fair brought a bit of Christmas in July with a dairy display of key elements from the 1983 film "A Christmas Story," which was partly filmed in Cleveland.
In addition to the traditional butter cow and calf, the sculpture included the character Ralphie in his bunny suit, the classic leg lamp, and a holiday tree decorated with lights. The scene showed the licking of the frozen flagpole, but this time the kid isn't the only one with his tongue stuck. It appears the butter calf took the "triple-dog-dare," too.
The American Dairy Association Mideast said sculptors spent more than 400 hours creating the refrigerated display out of more than a ton of butter.
