Boy Really Likes Butter

Here is a little boy dancing after he takes his first bite of deep-fried butter at the Texas State Fair. It is ADORABLE. And hypnotic. Abe Sauer is probably writing an angry essay about it right now.

OK, Texas. If my federal dollars have to go to your heart attacks, then you have to pay for my abortions. Deal?

He looks and dances just like my grandfather.

I was going to say Enos from the Dukes of Hazzard.

Hey, Abe, at least he can't get pregnant…

I have a feeling he won't be getting anyone else pregnant either.

He's dancing because it's his first state fair and because you're videotaping him and telling him where and how to do it and why in fuck would you exploit your child like this he is a person you know with his own goddamned life which will likely extend into adulthood and hatred of you dumbass Grownup.

Your sentiment reminds me of a bumper sticker I once saw inconspicuously placed on a senior citizen's wheelchair(obviously placed there by her children.) It read, "Remember, we're the ones who choose your nursing home.

He looks like Bobby for King of the Hill.

I want to strap that kid into a Keith Gessen mask and yank his underpants up over his head.

This comment is butterenthusiastist.

I remember when I was about this kid's age and I got in big trouble for eating an entire stick of butter out of the refrigerator. STILL NOT SORRY, MOM!

my baby brother did this with margarine. he thought it was cheese. given the caliber of cheese we were eating at the time he wasn't far off.

Meh. The fried butter was marginal at best. More like a donut with no sugar. Pretty sure this kid just has ADHD, and there's a screening booth for that, right next to the Scientology and Sleep Apnea testing booths. I much preferred the Fried Guacamole and the Green Goblins. And yes I have a normal BMI but to show solidarity with Balk and his choice of videos, I'm leaving for Palm Springs where I plan to spend the entire weekend not getting fat women pregnant.

margarinal, you mean? uh huh, uh huh.

There is not a straight woman in Palm Springs under 60 so I doubt you will be getting any of them pregnant.

BoHan (#29)

Ummmm. OK. Yes. Definitely that too.

Wow, if the fried butter is anywhere as good as the fried cheese curds, then blergch!

Bittersweet (#765)

You mean fat doesn't always taste good? My world is shaken.

Baboleen (#1,430)

Why waste time frying it? The kid looks like he has osteoporosis.

HiredGoons (#603)

I hope he also likes gout!

If you ignore the fact that it's the same two pieces of video looped endlessly, it's kind of reminiscent of Yvonne Rainer.

Abe Sauer looks quite tubby in his avatar photo, so, is all his outrage about fat Americans supposed to be ironic?

I already wrote about state fairs thankyouverymuch.

I have to nerdily point out that the economist had a fantastic article about this recently entitled Come Fry With Me. It includes, "When bitten, they collapse with an unctuous squelch."
