Butter "v" Margarine
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 research wanted a payback so they put their heads together to figure out what to do to get their money back.
It was a white substance with no food appeal. so they added yellow coloring and sold it to people to use in place of butter.

You can try this yourself, purchase a tub of margarine, leave it open in your garage, or shaded area, within a couple of days you will notice a couple of things, no flies not even those pesky fruit flies will go near it, that should tell you something. It does not rot or smell differently, because it has no nutritional value.
Nothing will grow on it or eat it, even those teeny weeny micro organisms will find a home to grow. Why ? Because it is nearly plastic. Would you melt your tupperware and spread it on your toast ? Share this with your friends if you want to butter them up.
