i generally believe that there can be no such thing as too much butter
in cooking, however american's tend to over do the amount of butter
they serve with lobster.

it reminds me of a story a friend told me about a trip to an american
cinema, where you got your popcorn and then went to a 'butter fountain'
to get some butter on it. i'm sure it wasn't as impressive as i'm
imagining it - but i can't help but hope it was an elaborate ornamental
affair with multiple streams of golden goodness flying through the
air. as some sort of celebration of overindulgence.

mmmm butter.
