Hot Knife Through Butter

As not to embarrass anyone, I won’t use a name here.  But, I thought this story was too funny not to share.  We’ll call the person Bob.

Bob recently learned about the expression “like a hot knife through butter.”  He had never heard of it, and didn’t understand why it would be a saying.  So, while making dinner tonight, he decided to try to cut his butter with a hot knife.  Not having a hot knife handy, he had to heat the knife … but putting it into the toaster.

He learned two things tonight (1) cutting butter with a hot knife is very easy and (2) you should not put a knife in a toaster.

    Hahaha! I hope Bob didn’t burn himself too badly. (Or did he short out the toaster?)

Let me know what you think!
