The Canadian Margarine Controversy, via Your Moosey Fate

It's important to be up on your butter substitute politics. This reminds me of a mystery novel I once read by Nicholas Freeling, called Gun Before Butter, which features butter smuggling in backpacks, and the marvellous Van der Valk. It was the Van der Valk series of novels that taught me the word, "plonk", for cheap but drinkable red table wine.

I don't understand the hubub.. Cause no matter how much you make it LOOK like butter, unless your tastebuds have died, they sure as hell can't make it TASTE like butter. I doubt many would be fooled!
