Norway is Out of Butter

December 9, 2011

No, that is not super-secret spy code language – Norway is really out of butter:

The soaring popularity of a fat-rich fad diet has depleted stocks of butter in Norway creating a looming Christmas culinary crisis.

Norwegians have eaten up the country’s entire stockpile of butter, partly as the result of a “low-carb” diet sweeping the Nordic nation which emphasizes a higher intake of fats.

Our guess is Norwegian farmers will milk this story for all it’s worth. They’ll spread it far and wide. Keep churning it out…

This story is made all the more ironic by the fact that Norway actually looks like a lump of butter that was dropped on the top of Finland and melted down the back of Sweden:

Which is why “Norway” means “What the heck is on my back!?” in Swedish.
