My local Fox affiliate airs two episodes of ‘Family Guy’ each night, but rather than two consecutive ones, they’re on two separate rerun rotations.  Currently, we’re in the wonderful part of the cycle where both eps come from after the HD conversion, which means better art, fewer cringe episodes and more mocking of Brian.  It also means we can see the wonderful time when Peter and Quagmire became a folk duo, singing a number of terrible songs and the truly sublime “Have You Ever Put Butter On A Pop-Tart”, which is the zenith of Seth McFarlane’s comedic powers.  It’s a truly fun song, singable but not ear-wormy, approachable and well-performed, leading to today’s so frickin’ good query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) is a fat man, and so absolutely has, asking: Have you ever put butter on a Pop-Tart?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.

    No…. However, in my childhood there were times that instead of peanut butter & jelly sandwiches we’d get peanut butter & marshmallow fluff sandwiches. So of course, when the parental unit wasn’t paying attention, I HAD to try a marshmallow fluff & jelly sandwich.

  2. If it means literal butter on a literal PopTart, then no but I am willing to try it now. If it means something else … maybe ;)
