Rotten Butter

Fresh Willow Maid Butter

Fresh Willow Maid Butter

My father never liked butter. He said his American farm-cook mother had served rancid butter as a cost-cutting measure. I think, perhaps, serving rotten butter was just a reflection of my grandmother’s lack of skill in the kitchen. The only thing she whipped up that didn’t make me sick was packaged Hidden Valley Ranch salad dressing.

In England, everyone’s favorite living Sex Pistol, Johnny Rotten, is mock-celebrating the U.K.’s history and butter: watch his telly commercial on YouTube (Rotten sells Country Life).

If Rotten’s butter sell-out leaves you craving a pat of real anarky, check out the recipes at F*#k Corporate Groceries and Punk Rock Kitchen‘s kick-ass cookie cutters! And steer clear of the Food Network — where the programming has turned into a rancid pablam according to True/Slant’s Matthew Greenberg.

Phil Spector received 19-years behind bars this week. Thanks for the other, much better, memories, Mr. Spector.
