Big news around these parts: The Iowa State Fair kicked off yesterday. And you know what that means "“ Butter Cow. Well, butter lots of things, actually, which is why today's Q10 is a photo Q10! Although the original artist, Duffy Lyon, started out just sculpting various bovines of butter, over the years she decided to start incorporating current events along with Bessie. Michael Jackson was supposed to be the honoree this year (I'll leave the jokes to you), but Iowans vetoed that idea and the anniversary of the moon landing is depicted in the artery-clogging substance instead. Just in case you don't make it to the state fair every year, here are 10 buttery creations.

Does your State Fair do sculptures using rather unconventional mediums? I've seen others, but of course, I'm partial to ours. Share yours in the comments!

Have a Q10 request? I'm on Twitter and I'm all ears! Err... all keys. Something.
