stupid idea of the day

This came up in a discussion at work today, but I decided that it might be worth sharing...

Somehow we were on the topic of how unhealthy butter was. Mike was claiming that there's 100 calories in a spoon of butter. So for a 2000 calorie diet, one can consume 20 spoons of butter, equivalent to two and a half sticks of butter. Sweet.

Then I got to thinking that 100 calories isn't really that bad. After all, a can of Coke has 160 calories, and in my opinion, isn't nearly as tasty as butter. Of course Kevin didn't agree. I can understand why someone would value Coke more. Hell, it's got caffeine. That's one area where butter just can't compete. Or can it? Caffeinated butter. That would be pretty sweet. If they can make caffeinated soap, I'm sure they can make caffeinated butter. Then we can kill ourselves even faster! Yay!
