Oh the honour! US Olympic artistic gymnast Shawn Johnson was honoured for her silver medal yesterday, in her own Madam Tussuad's moment -- only with a crucial difference. Her likeness was sculpted from butter, not wax.
I have no idea why, but I am sure Shawn Johnson will be delighted to share the spotlight with the traditional butter cow. And, it gets even butter - the sculptor plans to include a balance beam into her piece. It currently still looks a bit fetish to me, so maybe this will sort that out.
