Pass The Butter .. please.
This is interesting . .. .
Margarine was originally manufactured to
fatten turkeys. When it killed the turkeys, the people who had put all
the money into the research wanted a payback so they put their heads together
to figure out what to do with this product to get their money back. It
was a white substance with no food appeal so they added the yellow
coloring and sold it to people to use in place of butter. How do you
like it? They have come out with some clever new flavorings.

You can try this
Purchase a tub of
margarine and leave it in your garage or shaded area. Within a couple
of days you will note a couple of things:
* no flies, not even
those pesky fruit flies will go near it (that should tell you
* it does not rot or
smell differently because it has no nutritional value; nothing will grow on it. Even those
teeny weeny microorganisms will not a find a
home to grow. Why? Because it is nearly plastic. Would you melt your
Tupperware and spread that on your toast?
