• holy fuck you guys
after years of being vaguely confused when came across the measurement "a stick of butter" in recipes, today I learned that in the United States they sell butter in these skinny stick things:
it is literally a stick of butter. A STICK OF BUTTER.
i have literally never seen butter sold this way. each stick one only amounts to "2 a cup of butter AVERICANS PLEASE UN-
DERSTAND THAT MY WHOLE LIFE WHEN SAW THE PHRASE "A STICK OF BUTTER"
IN RECIPES I WAS IMAGINING THIS:
THIS IS THE ONLY "STICK" 'D EVER SEEN BUTTER SOLD IN. I THOUGHT Y'ALL WERE THROWING FUCKIN' POUNDS UPON POUNDS OF BUTTER INTO THINGS HOLY JESUS THE WORLD MAKES SO MUCH MORE SENSE NOW FUCKIN CHRIST.

love little foreign confusion things like this
