Mrs. Butterworth!

Dan and I were at the SuperFresh at 10th & South last night, looking at Mrs. Butterworth syrup and noting that the bottle was now plastic instead of glass. We weren't interested in buying it, mind you, but we were commenting on how much the bottle looked like the female Changeling from "Deep Space Nine." (UltimateSean gets the original credit for that comparison, by the way.) Anyway, along comes none other than District Attorney Lynne Abraham. I'm kind of a fan of hers, so I greeted her and she was very friendly. She thought we were mulling over syrup choices, so right there she gave us a tutorial on the comparative virtues of this or that syrup. It was great, and so informative that by that point I almost wanted pancakes for dinner. Isn't that like some strange dream?

Did a tasting at the caterer's yesterday, and I had a piece of cake that was absolutely divine. It was so good I almost wept. Can't wait to have more on the 10th!

That's a great story. So, inquiring minds want to know: which syrup is the best, according to District Attorney Lynne Abraham?

I'm kind of not a fan of hers, what with being so death-penalty happy and creating an institutional culture that discourages cordial relationships with the public defenders and taking a second look at strong exoneration cases, but that's a good story anyway.
