Amazing Discovery -- butter that fits our butter dish!

Our butter dish is low and long, and most sticks of butter are shorter than the butter dish, as well as tall enough to press against the underside of the lid, like this:

I have heard legend that there are sticks of butter that will fit -- such as the ones I grew up with in Ohio -- but that they are fairly rare on the west coast.
` I've tried to tell people this, but they didn't believe me... until now -- or should I say, this past January, when I bought this stick of butter! As you can see, there is space above the top of the lid, and it does indeed fill out the length better!

So, THEY DO EXIST! CASE CLOSED! I was so excited that I put a sign on the butter dish so that everyone in the house would notice this extraordinary find! They found it to be somewhat amusing.

Please, contain your enthusiasm.

Anyway, I've got a paper to continue writing. See ya later!

What, the butter or the butter dish?

That is soap! Just admit that you cut some some soap in the shape of the dish so it would fit and are now trying to pass it as butter. Did 'the man of the house' try it yet? Did he start blowing bubbles afterwards??? Hehehehe :-D
