Some Guy Found a Huge Chunk of 2,000-Year-Old Butter in a Bog and It's Still Edible

A 2,000-year-old orb of butter weighing 22-pounds was recently discovered in Co Meath, Ireland. Ancient butter experts believe that it was once offering to the gods. It’s also “theoretically... still edible” according to Andy Halpin, one of the Irish National Museums’ assistant keepers.

Gotta love misleading headlines:  "2,000-year-old 'bog butter' is still edible"

Last paragraph:  "According to Andy Halpin of the National Museum of Ireland the bog butter may even still be edible, but given its extreme age it is probably not a good idea to try eating any of it."

So Dart Frogs are edible as well by this logic. Bullets are edible, just the round not the entire casing, although the bullet powder inside the casing is considered a delicacy in some cultures and is edible as well.

" Ancient butter expert" that sounds like a very limit field 

Thats why they get payed so much. Your average commercial butter expert can rake in quite the salary, salted butter experts even more, but an ancient butter expert is quite rare.

These stupid scientists. The ancient Irish obviously buried this in a bog to protect the world from it, now it's been released from it's boggy prison and will grow, devouring all of us within it's well-matured, high-calorie embrace! :o

Maybe the Irish drank all that whiskey to kill the taste of the butter and anything growing in it.
