added the yellow coloring and sold it to people to use
in place of butter. How do you like it?
They have come out with some clever new flavorings.

You can try this yourself: & lt; BR>
Purchase a tub of margarine and leave it in your garage
or shaded area. Within a couple of days
you will note a couple of things:
* no flies, not even those pesky fruit flies
will go near it (that should tell you something)
* it does not rot or smell differently because
it hasno nutritional value; nothing will grow on it.
