What Kind Of Monster Leaves Butter Out On The Counter? [DEBATE]
Are you Team Butter* In the Fridge or Team Countertop?
This question was asked by someone on Twitter which led to an article by Buzzfeed, and the debate spilled over into a Facebook group that I belong to. Let me tell you, the Facebook debate was vicious, and the conversation got so heated that people were threatening to lose friendships over this thing! I was sitting there reading the comments like, “Pass the popcorn!” I’ve included a few of the comments below, but have blurred out the names to protect the guilty.
