      This rather hilarious thread reminds me of that now infamous remark about Chicken of the Sea.

      It's called "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter." Obviously it's not butter, or the name of the product would be "I Can't Believe It's Butter." Here are the ingredients:

            Other products by the same company:

            I Can't Believe It's Not Lard (use to make tamales and tortillas)
            I Can't Believe It's Not Meat (vegan spray on meat flavoring)
            I Cant Believe It's Not Soup (a box of liquid detergent that smells like matzo ball soup)
            I Can't Believe It's Not Squirrel (tofu shaped roadkill, also avaliable in moose)
            I Can't Believe I Bought This (an empty box that retails for 2.99)

          It's margarine, not butter.
