seeker said:htf can a country so full of fekking COWS suffer a shortage of freaking BUTTER!!!!
It's totally $%$£%$%£ crazy.
By the way, this totally mysterious shortage must be related to the fact that butter's gone up at least 50% the last few months...
I think you are right. When I mentioned the butter and the previous sugar issues to my land lord, she said this happens every time there is a significant price raise. The suppliers hold the product pushing up the price because of this "shortage" and then miraculously all the supplies go back to normal and the prices are jacked up.
