Norway Needs Butter

newsweek:

I mean, he’s totally got a point you guys. What if we had no butter?! What if it was me who didn’t have butter?! Christmas would be totally ruined. We should orchestrate an Operation Butter Drop over Norway.

Get on that Newsweek, STAT. Could you get Tina Brown in on this? She’s Norwegian, right?

It turns out, the country has prohibitively high tariffs on imported butter — 26 kroner per kilo, or roughly $2 per pound, according to Lars Galtung, a spokesman for Tine, the country’s biggest dairy producer. (Norway isn’t a member of the EU.)

In an emergency move, the country’s agriculture ministry just temporarily cut the tariff way down. Tine is planing to import 150 tons of butter, and other companies are importing hundreds more tons, Galtung told me.

But getting hold of all that butter is likely to take a while. Galtung said the shortage is expected to run into the new year.

Please tell us vegans: How do you do it?

THIS IS EXACTLY HOW OUR BUTTER CRISIS WENT DOWN. Do NOT listen to any other media sources on this issue; they are lying. This NMA place knows everything there is to know about everything.

This is the best blog in the history of blogs

TELL EVERYONE ABOUT OUR NEED FOR BUTTER THE WORLD MUST KNOW

If only Paula Deen lived in Norway!

If Paula Deen lived in Norway, we would have run out of butter even faster. Society would have also declined to the point where people would be trying to churn their own butter and stealing their friends’ milk and cheese. Paula Deen, you are not an example of a fine Norwegian. You would steal butter from your countrymen. Wouldn’t you?
