What I Wore Today

Earl Butz

Today’s outfit is in honor of Jane Smiley’s academic satire Moo, which I read a long time ago and loved.  After working at large universities for 15 years it now reads as narrative non-fiction, and I love it even more and will not stop talking about it.

The setting is a Midwestern ag school, so this blouse with prize-winning cows and pigs really spoke to me.  Earl Butz is a secret 700-lb pig who’s being studied by a professor to see how fat he gets.  And there’s just all kinds of cray-cray like that, where you go, “YES!  That’s what it’s like!”
