That's good question. I was going to ask it myself then I
remembered that you were going to and didn't. But that's not
the point, is it? What is the point? Well butter doesn't have
POINTS! That's one of the great things about it! You can run
back and forth through your house with butter in your hand
and fall down a million times. The chances that you will lose
an eye are so slim that anyone who does was probably stupid
anyway! Butter is that good.

But margarine... oh, the dreaded margarine. Not only sharp
and pointy, but sneaky, conniving and made from vegetable oil.
It's not only NOT butter, but NOT a lot of things. It's not
gold, or silver or money or any of that other stuff. It's just
plain not butter and that, friends, is all the evidence I need.

...anything else you need to know just ask,
   it's what I'm here for...
