I Can’t Believe It’s Not (My) Butter

January 15th, 2012 · 29 comments

Tommy in Norway isn’t the only one getting butt-hurt over butter.

From the U.K…

I don't know your name, but you have seen stealing my butter. Put it back in the  fridge or I will lick EVERYTHING.

to Australia…

Beck' s butter: Lisa if you touch it ur dead!!!!

to Ireland…

Stop eating our butter, and anything else that is ours.

it’s beginning to look like this butter crisis might be going global.

Meanwhile, in America…

    Meh. Wrap a stick of Crisco butter in the wrapper and put it in the fridge…then let folks go at it.

    Dear UK Butter Owner,

    We used your butter as lube. Do you want it back or would you like to lick it?

    Sincerly,
    Buttery and Delicious

    I don’t understand the connection between touching butter and being in the DEA.

      Perhaps after seeing Paula’s video the DEA declared butter an addictive substance?

    I told my puppy to stop eating my butter so he threw it back up onto the carpet.

    Who brings butter to work? This is the only condiment I haven’t seen in my work fridge.

      I have a coworker who makes eggbeaters every morning, and she’s supposed to grease the bowl with butter before nuking them.

      My co-workers insisted on keeping the butter unrefrigerated in the cabinet. And repeatedly removing any stick of the refrigerated butter to the cabinet.

      Butter need not be refrigerated if you use it within several weeks. It doesn’t go rancid quickly. The salt is the key. Butter has been around way longer than refrigeration.

      This discussion has been done to death on a previous PAN.

    The threat of someone licking everything – if their fridge is anything like our work fridge – is very unsettling! Imagine licking everything in your work fridge. Ewww! I think I’d threaten something that requires less ick factor if I’m required to actually follow through…

      I’m stuck on this as well, although my mind took it to a somewhat weirder place. Someone threatening that they will “lick everything” if I don’t return their butter? Are these lines from a porno?
      (Enter, Jenna, holding empty container of butter)
      Jenna: “Gosh, Molly, I really am sorry that I used your butter. And now it’s all gone…”
      Molly: “Come here and accept your punishment…”

      No? That’s not weird!

      Well, my mind didn’t go there (at least not straight away). But now that you’ve mentioned it, it’s the only way I can read the note in my head now. And it’s much less PA!

    Love the Paula Deen video. I think she just got diagnosed Type 2 diabetic….

      She was diagnosed in 2008. She’s only informing the public now.

      And, she should have been Vegan way back when as only the Vegan diet has been proven to reverse Diabetes. However, I would argue that those who have a defective Ilium or had stomach surgery should add Fish into their diet (for B12). Dr. Neal Barnard and PCMA doctors proved that the Vegan diet reversed diabetes and resulted in no kidney damage where the control diet had some kidney damage (chicken and fish) and the typical recommended Diabete diet (beef and chicken) had lots of kidney damage. (Heart surgery people should be B12 levels checked as they might not absorb B12 either.)

    So how many people in addition to myself are thinking of nasty things to leave in order to be licked? So far I’ve gotten 1. stinky cheese that really spent 24 hours in my gym shoe, not just smells that way; 2. Sausage balls made with “cat box” sausage; and 3. A Ham sandwich spread with Scotch Bonnet pepper infused mayo.

    What the bejezus is “extra spreadable” butter?

      It’s butter that is extra spreadable………

      It’s butter blended with vegetable oil so you can spread it straight from the fridge.

    Why is my brain insisting on reading out the last one as Jedward…though admittedly it makes it about 100 x funnier.

    I’ve been reading PAN for a long time.. but this post made me register.

    I love love love the first note. I don’t know why but it made me giggle for about 3 minutes! I just love the threat.

    Irish butter is something to be hoarded, for sure.

    Food having been licked wouldn’t stop me; if I were squeamish about that sort of thing I would never have kissed anyone, ever. And I’ve kissed over four women in my time.
