    FIRST OF ALL, on the molecular level, butter on corn is delicious. And what does corn turn into?!?! OH yeah, POPCORN. Therefore, physics would have it that butter + popCORN = delicious.

    Secondly, if you've never used a self-serve butter popcorn machine you haven't lived.

    The butter that comes out of these machines is delicious/like no other.

    And really, that's it. Logic has it that popcorn and butter is delicious.

    In conclusion, butter and popcorn is delicious and everyone who thinks otherwise is wrong.
