One phrase: "unsalted butter"

Relevance? Purpose?

There are two kinds of butter at your local supermarket, salted butter, and unsalted butter. Unsalted butter doesn't taste as good as salted butter, I say.

Ah.

I understood the lyrics' creativity and deepness, but I wasn't quite sure of the reference. Thanks for the clarification. :)

Yes, it can but only if it's stuck in your eye.

Unremarkable, you are so clever. It's unsalted punishment.

Forrest! You're on the long winters board... did you get a new phone or something?

After watching many episodes of "Good Eats" I have learned many things about butter, and have some unsalted butter in the freezer... "just in case". I am however, lactose intolerant; so salted or not, butter is potentially my punishment.

I check out this board every day I work at Barsuk HQ, I just usually have the good sense not to post anything.

wow, I wish I had a job that had a cool message board that was actually pertinent to it. There actually was one, briefly... but it was very, very bad.

all they talked about was office furniture, and there was a canadian who didn't understand the use of lower case letters. It got about two posts a week, since it was only available on the company intranet. Then, one day... it was gone, never to be seen again.

I'll be okay.

"Listen to me. I was born without the ability to modulate the volume of my voice. It is an affliction that affects over 700 Americans every year. It is also fully acknowledged by medical communities of both the United States and the United Kingdom. I have extensive literature in the trunk of my car that I'm happy to run and get for you if you think I'm lying."
