Five Second Critic 014: Larkin Butter

In this episode, I explain why I agree with folk singer Patty Larkin.

Watched it and still confused? Here’s Five Second Critic for Dummies:

At the end of the live version of “Don’t” found on À Gogo: Live on Tour, Larkin ad-libs a series of lines about things she believes: black leather is optional, girls can play guitar, and it’s not butter. “I believe it’s not butter,” she sings, and the audiences laughs. I have always laughed along with them, but it’s only recently that I realized I agree with her.

Look, I’m fine with the generic version of the non-butter spread I buy at Shaw’s. That actually tastes like butter to me, and it’s made from buttermilk. So, whatever. But where I’m with Larkin is when it comes to the spray-bottle I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter that my wife buys for spraying on vegetables and such. That stuff grosses me out, honestly. And that I believe is not butter.

Oh, and if you’ve never heard of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter, check this out and go have yourself a taste. Then come back here and tell us what you think of it. Are you with Larkin or against her?
