Default Norway is out of butter!

Has anybody else seen this? Norway is out of butter.

"I've seen an ad where they wanted 5,000 kronor ($740) for a box of butter."
Apparently, butter is the new big thing to smuggle too.

A Russian man was caught on Friday trying to bring 90 kilogrammes of butter over the Swedish border to Norway without paying the custom duty.
Let Them Eat Margarine: Norway Butter Shortage Brings Blue Christmas | Fox News

Quote:
Butter consumption has steadily increased in the Scandinavian country this year, partly because of the nation's increased popularity of low-carb but fat-rich diets. Growth in demand peaked at more than 30 percent last month, compared with November 2010.
This is actually kind of funny.

My wife has some online friends in that neck of the woods, yes, they are hurting for butter. I think we may be mailing some.

Sounds like they actually have a cow shortage. ( Wonder how much a Holstein and a butter churner would sell for over there?)
