And have it drip margarine, like you can with chocolate or cheese?%0D\
I have a barbecue today, and I thought since we were having baked potatos, rolls and corn on the cob, it would be a great idea to do a margarine waterfall type of thing.%0D\
Are you having the residents of Shady Pines over?
melt it, put it in a little dish over a candle with a basting brush - a fondue pot is overkill, unless you need enough margarine/butter for a hundred people.
Who the hell even keeps margarine in the house anymore?
Are we getting pretentious again, OP?
Drip? What? Tiny ears of corn? Huh?
Margarine and butter is really flamable. %0D\
Yes you can, OP, especially if you want to clear away the guests in a hurry.
Just use butter-flavor Crisco! At least you can put the leftovers to good use.

Why make things so complicated and pretentious? Just put out the margarine, and people will decide whether they want some or not. People don''t pour margarine on their food, like a fondue....unless you have a squeeze Parkey.
I always use butter...otherwise, absolutely WONDERFUL!
Your guests will put individual foods under margarine falls? It will be the biggest mess in the history of picnicdom. Please do it and post pics.
OP is the Willy Wonka of the trans-fat industry.
Please make a margarine waterfall. I can imagine people standing around confused, trying to figure out the logistics.
Margarine???? How gross! It''s a holiday, OP. Use butter (which is healthier anyway).
That''s gonna requirah a lot of lobstahs, r17.

Butter is dry and tasteless.%0D\
Margarine is sweeter. Especially for ears of corn. I wanted to have it so the people can just stand there with their ears of corn and let the margarine baste it. %0D

What? No master-baster for the party?
Of course you can.%0D\
I had a margarine fountain at my wedding reception... to save calories!

R20 do you live on the planet earth?\
Where do you get your butter?\
Since you are giving your guests one of the worst foods you can eat, corn is a GMO crop you should give them margarine and see if you can''t kill them off by the end of the day.
I don''t agree with your idea of putting margarine in a fondue pot but I''ll fight to the death for your right to do it.\
Happy Independence Day!
You will need plenty of those little plastic corn cob holders so your guests can roll the corn against your fountain.\
Also, etiquette dictates that your guests roll the corn TOWARDS themselves and they shouldn''t roll ears they''ve already gnawed on.\
They could use the same holders for the rolls.\
If you could build up some pressure, I''m sure your guests could hold the potatoes under the stream.\
Potential Problems: gusty winds
I just googled "margarine waterfall" and guess what the number one result was.
What sort of hillbilly trash ARE you, OP? In WHAT goddamn fucking universe is butter "dry and tasteless"? \
You''re Special, aren''t you? Did you ride the short bus to school?
Margerine is vile tasting and is worse for you than butter due to the trans fats. Did I say it is vile tasting?%0D\
By the way, it tastes vile.
It''s amazing how many fools take OP seriously.
Never underestimate the idiocy of DL''ers.
OP probably thinks Miracle Whip is classy.
OP. You are one weird mudderfucker.
I still don''t understand what a fountain has to do with a fondue pot. Where do I catch the short bus?
Every flying bug in the neighborhood (and some flying squirrels) will be attracted to its rich, buttery smell.
So will all the fatties, R34.
Actually, R34, flies will NOT land on margarine. It''s true. Try it if you don''t believe me. They know instinctively that margarine is not fit for consumption.
Read this and threw up a little in my mouth. Seriously. Now I''m feeling queasy and maybe a little dizzy too. Yes, OP is a troll and I''m a princess.
[quote] Margerine is vile tasting and is worse for you than butter due to the trans fats. Did I say it is vile tasting?\
You all do know that most margarine is trans fat free these days, right? Use Smart Balance and it''s fine.
Just be sure to set it up right next to the baked potato bar so guests will know what it''s for.
It''s great for dipping nutloaf! And wonderful for those of us with a dairy allergy!
Just get a squirt gun and load it full of melted margarine.
I love fondue in July. Nothing I want more on a hot day than dipping my food in molten cheese.
Well, yes.....you CAN!\
OP, bless your heart, aren''t you glad you asked?
OP honey, margarine ''waterfalls'' are so last year. You must live in one of those flyover States. Here on the coast it''s all about the natcho cheese ''waterfall''. Tostito cheese sauce says ''klassy'' and blue corn chips say ''I care about your health grandma''. Park your keg beside this masterpiece and you have a recipe for fun.%0D\
A margarine WATERFALL?!?!%0D\
PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! do it OP and you MUST post pics.%0D\
A margarine waterfall trumps knocking a grill in the pool while dancing to Hootie...[italic] anyday!![/italic]%0D\
I would be TRANSFIXED watching the type of people and what foodstuffs they would "dip".%0D\
I don''t know what it is, but it''s something about the summer months when you flyovers really earn your room and board on the DL.%0D\
BLESS YOU, OP!!
I hope Paula Deen doesn''t catch wind of this thread, but I PRAY Bobby Deen [italic] DOES. [/italic]
R46, in flyover country we know that it''s spelled "nacho."
Fondue pots are good for crisco fountains only
I''ve always wondered what people do when they have a fancy chocolate fountain like at r15 and a fly lands on it.
HAHAHA I can''t believe someone started this thread. We have a fondue pot that we use exclusively for melted butter at out clam bake. It has a lid and we put a small ladle in it so people can fill their little cups.
Don''t know why, but "margarine waterfall type thing" has me in stitches. \
Go for it, OP!! Keep some aloe vera handy for the inevitable burns. I can hear the local emergency responders: "Oh, some gay fella burnt up a bunch of people with this margarine type waterfall he had set up over there!"
My new drag name is "Margarine Waterfall."
I hope it turns out to be a 3 tiered margarine fountain. Nothing says "July" like melted margarine.
R9, Last week I opened a musty copy of The Joy of Cooking and an ancient xerox of some magazine ad cookie recipe fluttered to the floor; a full page headshot of Loretta Lynn for margarine flavored Crisco.
Which is why she had a big hit with "Fist City," r59. She was singing about the joys of Crisco.
[quote]My new drag name is "Margarine Waterfall.''\
Margarine Fondue would be a better one, especially if you pronounced it Marja-REEN.
Oh God. Don''t make me wake up one morning and want to put a fried egg on my head.
OP, please take a picture of the first guest who thinks the yellow liquid falling from the fountain is champagne.
Wait for that celebratory first big gulp.
I missed this the first time around. A margarine fondue pot would be perfect for the potato bar.
Are you sure the trailer park can handle the electrical load from a fondue pot?
I should think a fondue pot would be a great way to serve graxy.
"Butter is dry and tasteless.
Margarine is sweeter. Especially for ears of corn. I wanted to have it so the people can just stand there with their ears of corn and let the margarine baste it."
UGH! A true philistine!
Only 68 posts but a true DL classic.
What did the OP end up doing?
I can't believe I missed this thread back in July. It is a DL classic. A margarine waterfall?
"Butter is dry and tasteless"
I don't know why but this statement really put a bee in my bonnett!
Butter is NOT dry! Nor is it tasteless!
When was the last time you heard of a spread called, "I Can't Believe It's Not Margarine!"????
Fuck You, Butter-Phobe!!!
only a dumb ninny would eat dry tasteless butter!
Margarine is much worse for your heart than butter. TRANS-FATS!
And margarine tastes nasty. I've never in my life bought it.
This has to be a joke. No one can be this pathetic.
Is it a myth that margarine was originally used to make plastic or used to fatten turkeys? One of those things.
I used to work for Unilever, who owns most of the margarines on the market (Becel, Blue Bonnett, I Can't Believe It's Not Butter, Country Crock, etc), and it was pretty much known by all that they were food substitutes that were a molecule away from being plastic. But then, most of their products are artificial slop - Knorr still uses monosodium glutamate as an addictive additive when they really don't have to, Suave and Dove products are full of chemical and cheap fillers, and although they insist they don't, Unilever still tests on animals.
So if the margarine fountain leaks, do you end up with Parkay floors?
For the first time ever, I'm going to say it: OP, you definitely type fat. And trailer park.
R91 margarine was invented in France in the 1850s, so yes I suppose you could say at a stretch that it was a miracle invention of the 50s...
I don't think the French envisaged the true splendor of a margarine fountain.
That chocolate in the fountain is mainly vegetable oil. Why not?
A margarine fountain! The perfect combination of pathetic pretentiousness and trashy low class taste.
Please post pics!
Margarine is unhealthy. You're better off with butter and I'm sure your guests will thank you since most margarine tastes like shit.
I sure wouldn't want to come to you're BBQ OP. Margarine is unhealthy and tastes like shit. Ever hear of butter?
A fondue pot and a waterfall are two different things.
OMG! This is one of the funniest threads I've ever read.
I think the fact that OP is so seriously indignant about her margarine, her margarine waterfall, and her party idea with guest standing around crunching on margarine covered ears of corn is a big part of the fun. You just ignore all these jealous posters, sweetie - your margarine waterfall is going to be the talk of the trailer park.
Thank you for the laughs.
I can't believe this thread is still around/ has been resurrected.
Wasn't everything there is to be said about this subject already done on the first go-round FOUR YEARS AGO?
R110 this thread is so old butter wasn't even invented when it was started.
Have you ever sucked the jelly out of a jelly donut?
