Darth Vader AND Butter
October 25, 2005 1:30 PM   Subscribe

Darth Vader Butter Sculpture. This was featured at the Tulsa State Fair, as one their annual butter scultpures. We've got Darth on our minds, right up there with the ultimate father figure while still making the usual dorky fan art (balloons, balloon masks).

That's just wrong, Darth Vader in light colors makes him look like he could be a misunderstood good guy when we all know he dressed in all black because he's evil.

But I do like the evilness of a butter Darth Vader, he'll force clogs into your arteries! If you only knew the supremely buttery flavor of the Dark Side!

I've always wondered, why butter? The butter cows, butter Darth Vader...I cringe when I pay $3.50 for four sticks. (I'm sure there's a little plaque with the Land O'Lakes logo on it somewhere, but still...) How long do these sculptures keep? What do they do with them afterward? Big grilled cheese party?

I Can't Believe It's Not Vader.

I don't see the connection between Vader and a zillion pounds of butter. If it were a massive sculpture of Barbra Streisand ... well THATS buttah.

Vader's sabre looks a little... flaccid.

With our combined strength, we can end this destructive conflict and bring butter to the galaxy!!

Darth Vader's junk is missing. Why I noticed this, disturbs me to no end.

The pictures on that page are timing out. I think these might be the same.

Oh, and: Butterface.

Why do I sense we've picked up another pathetic life form?
This is getting out of hand. Now there are two of them.

It may be because I'm drunk but I'm gonna take the lone stick of butter from my fridge and carve Boba Fett. I bet I can still fit into my Star Wars underoos baby. Time to sculpt half nekkid!

More butter than you can possibly imagine.

I don't know, I can imagine quite a lot!

Aren't you a little short for a lightsaber?

"HURF DURF BUTTER VADER" is one of the funniest things I've ever read, and I really wish I could explain it to my friends.
