Butter Battle, But NOT the Dr. Seuss Type
An argument over butter in a macaroni and cheese recipe churned into violence between a brother and sister near East Wenatchee, Washington.
A 21-year-old man called police June 6 to say his 17-year-old sister had tried to cut his neck with the serrated edge of a spatula.
The police report says the sister was making macaroni and cheese when her brother asked if she was using butter. That led to an argument over the difference between butter and margarine. And, then butter battle escalated.
The Wenatchee World reports the girl was charged in Douglas County Superior Court with fourth-degree assault.
