  1. Hahaha, is this serious? Yet again, Americans are to blame for the downfall of something else, but BUTTER…really?
    I have 4 bricks in my freezer that he can have but they only come in tinfoil, not those nice little boxes with lids like he has. We are all generous folks here.
    Where oh where has all the butter gone? Did they eat all their cows?

    He reminds me of that Britney guy, “Leave my Butter aloooooonnne”
    Ok, I’ll stop now. Hahahahaha…

  2. So … uh … Tommy, … hmmm … I take it you were never … poor then? Good gracious, I can’t tell you how many times we ran out of butter, milk, eggs, MEAT, when I was a kid. My mom didn’t believe in welfare. When we had none, we improvised and made do and did without. My Mom was the inspiration for MacGuyver. Don’t have butter? Try another dairy product. In our house, water got substituted for milk, milk got substituted for butter (or we just didn’t use butter). Or how about this, Tommy: make something else that doesn’t use so much butter. Our food didn’t always turn out right, but we always had something on our plate (and in the words of Bill Cosby) “And we were THANKFUL!”

    • Your comment reminded me of the times that my family had pancakes for supper. I loved them, but I never knew that we had them because there was nothing else in the house. I’m 66 but every time I eat pancakes, I think of those meals…

      • Uh-oh, Richard. Are we related? We lived for about a year on tomato soup and pancakes: breakfast lunch and dinner, so yeah, we had pancakes for dinner too. My older brother couldn’t go near a pancake for about 15 years. But what they say is true: it builds character. My brothers and I all turned out pretty good at fixing things and jury-rigging things back together.

        • We had “Crud” night. That was basically anything leftover in the fridge that didn’t have green on it. Most of the time it was not too bad.
