Jennifer Garner to be Dipped in Fatty Butter

I saw this article this morning and just thought it was slightly amusing.

I’m sure we’ve all dreamed at some point of combining Jennifer Garner with butter, but Mandate has taken it a step further and made that dream a reality. They’ve hired Jennifer Garner to star in a comedy about an orphan who grows up to be a champion butter-carver. It’s called Butter, and according to screenwriter Jason Micallef' it’s actually a political satire.

He’s a better writer than me, because I can’t think of any parallels between margarine and the Iraq war. HR says the idea came from a trip to the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines, which is exactly where I’d have thought to look if I were out to find champion quality butter-carving. It sounds like the film will take place in a similar setting, with the movie’s orphan hero pitted against the ambitious wife of the retired reigning champion in an annualbutter-sculpting contest. No word on whether Garner plays the orphan or the orphan’s competition, but either way expect to see her greased up and shaping a block of butter into an exact likeness of Barack Obama’s head.
