1,000lb Butter Sculpture Of Darth Vader And Yoda

"Each year at the Tulsa State Fair, an artist is commissioned to make a sculpture out of butter. In past years, cows, farmers, and baseball players were created out of hundreds of pounds of butter. This year, in celebration of Star Wars's final episode, TSF is featuring Darth Vader and Yoda, all dairy-like."

Hot damn that is something sweet.

Butter > Margerine


Darth Vader has a large weapon. I wonder if it's solid?

Nah... It's filled with cream! ^_^


Ah, but it's not the Butter Last Supper with Butter on the Table now, is it?

So what do they do with that after the fair? do they set it next to the party buffet and let everyone cut into it to butter their bread?


hehe thats awesome! I hope he has a tight grip..

What a waste of perfectly good butter! That could feed a starving country for a year, or my obese self for one night at the movies.

I recall being told by someone in the catering industry that 'butter' sculptures are made using a kind of industrial strength butter, which you probably wouldn't enjoy eating.


That must have been last year's sculpture. Click my URL for this year's, a boy sitting backwards on a grazing horse.


In EU butter is very cheap, so you can make bigger sculptures.


Yup. Thats what the tulsa state fair is known for, butter sculptures, live vetrinary surgeries and pig birthing. I should know, I wasted 8 bucks on it this year. Just remember to bring your own liquor. In oklahoma, its all water-in-a-can...


How'd he make that rock under Yoda's hand levitate like that?


Very similar to Minnesota State Fair, except we have the Princess Kay of the Milky Way candidates heads carved in butter. Legend has it the girls get to bring their heads home after the Fair.

"Princess Kay’s first official duty is to sit in a rotating cooler for almost nine hours during the first day of the State Fair, where her likeness will be carved out of a 90 pound block of butter. Each remaining day of the fair, another Princess Kay finalist has her own likeness sculpted out of butter as well. The rotating cooler and butter sculptures are on display in the Empire Commons building at the Fair."


what a waste.
what oppression.
this is terrible.


this sucked!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sup dawgs BILLY RULZ


His light saber is looking kinda limp


everyone has to remember; imagine trying to make that yourself. The rude critism should stop, because most of you could never make something that awesome out of butter.

What a jok

I could care less if I could make it or not. It's an obvious waste, and i'm pretty sure thats not a lightsaber.


good thanks
