The Norwegian Butter Crisis Is Serious Business

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueEtc.

LOLz!

Check out this video above from a Norwegian blogger who is getting all kinds of upset for people making fun of the fact that Norway is currently in what people are calling a "butter crisis."

Yes, it sucks, and people anywhere would be pissed off about it. Though, we're not sure if they'd be so inclined to threaten to break into our houses and force us to watch them eat our butter in front of us, but hey, to each their own.

The thing is is this: the butter crisis is kind of ridiculous!

Norway is pretty small (think Colorado), but they're one of the richest countries (per capita) around. Mix that with two things: 1. they try to make everything for themselves (which is kind of inspired, yet…), but refuse to import any butter when a rough summer's weather severely lessens their dairy production — 2. because "the Norwegian dairy cooperative Tine has a de facto monopoly on the domestic market and is deliberately sheltered from foreign competition as a matter of public policy."

So the Government is already on top of it, relaxing the high tariffs and allowing for a flow of imported butter. So relax! It might be a little while, but there's no emergency here! It's just an annoying problem for the time being!

    I'm embarrassed and Norwegian!



  2. 2

    OMG, this dude is fucking hilarious. Thanks for the giggles, Mario :)



  3. 3

    Can't they just use Parkay margarine until they have more butter?



  4. 4

    Ok! Seriously! He's joking.



  5. 5

    Maybe all the gays are using it up as lubricant……..



  6. 6

    For the first time ever, I've been ashamed to call myself a norwegian, I mean jeeez… I hope this will never be synonymous with Norway.



  7. 7

    People aren't laughing at Norway because they have a shortage of butter. People are laughing at Norway because they have a shortage of butter due to people hoarding it for a silly fad diet.

    He/she is annyoing as hell. I wanna punch it in the face !!! Where the hell did it learn to speak English ?



  9. 9

    I'd like to beat him with a rubber hose.



  10. 10

    It's not really a crisis, just a shortage. People are forgetting that they can make their own butter :) I have to admit though, that being Norwegian right now is pretty shameful.. the tabloids are blowing this way out of proportion, especially when you think about the economy crisis that the US and most of Europe are going through. Btw; this blogger is a joke, and is desperate to get some attention, so thanks for that Perez….



  11. 11

    Oh My God!! This is embarassing!! norwegians in general (at least the ones I know) don't freak out by the butter shortage, and this blogger is someone who is calling himself a comedian. at least I know that I dont need a high-fat-diet to make myself skinny, and I bet neither do you. Jeezzz… - Norwegian shortie.



  12. 12

    Re: My Cheating Husband is Missing – you're shitting me, right? oleo instead of butter??!! scuse me while i go vomit.



  13. 13

    hahahahahahaha ha. Sweden: 1 Norway: 0



  14. 14

    had to be a homo!



  15. 15

    CRAZY PANTS



  16. 16

    to be honest i laughed more at his attempt to speak english lol (especially "sausage"). but he speaks it a lot better than i speak norwegian so..

    I feel bad for everyone in Norway, this crazy chick has a point. Baking for Christmas is a big deal in our family. If we had no butter I'd miss all of the favourite things we only make during the Christmas holidays.



  18. 18

    It's not that we're totally out of butter only the normal salty one which every norwegian prefers. They started to import some french butter. And of course we have margarine, but that's fake butter in the eyes of the norwegians.
    I don't like the way all those americans are making fun of us, I mean we don't think this is such a big deal as the guy above. But just look at other countries. Thousands of people don't have food or water, so why make fun of a country which doesn't have normal butter? What's the point?



  19. 19

    NOBODY in Norway is reacting this way. at least not in the West.
    they're making a big deal out of the shortage on the news, but that's only because Norway is pretty boring, and news will still be news. but most people don't really care. the lack of butter hasn't prevented me from baking cookies or anything like that, so I don't see how it would affect anyone else that much (except the morons that are "dieting", but it's their fault so who the fuck cares).



  20. 20

    I agree with Tommy . It`s NO christmas without butter.



  21. 21

    okay, first, that blogger is actually an actor, and the entire blog is just a joke. second, to the people commenting that the reason we're having a butter shortage is because of a fad diet, that's not entirely true. at least read the post - he even made it really simple to understand. and NO, you can't substitute butter with margarine for christmas baking!



  22. 22

    OMG - don't blame the danes - we already gave you 4000 packs of butter for free… You can just as easily use "margarin" in cakes as normal butter - it's even healthier and that's what we do in Denmark - we don't use butter in our christmas cakes…



  23. 23

    Re: charliev – You can, but you don't have to, and may prefer not to.



  24. 24

    Re: Pottan – We still have the oil, and the sweeds still come to Norway for work, and end up peeling bananas. Norway 3 - Sweeden ? :)



  25. 25

    Wow, this guy has issues, least of which is lack of butter… yikes



  26. 26

    Yeah he's right. Us American's are severely overweight because of our sweet potatoes and sour cream. lmao…turn off the camera child and go work on your eyebrows.



  27. 27

    LMAO. This made me giggle, he is so cuuuuteee! Accent! =]



  28. 28

    Does this mean they are having dairy cow issues too? Hmm



  29. 29

    Being a viking by heritage we make lefsa for Christmas and butter would be a problem. If I had 50% obese America making fun of my butter crisis I might make a ridiculous video too. That has to be insulting.



  30. 30

    Re: Cobia777 – Uh, isn't the blogger Norwegian? And I suppose there are also no fat people in Norway, either.



  31. 31

    Re: xxMaikexxx – I think one of your own country people are making fun of it, making a big deal about it, so you have THEM to blame, not Americans. Geez. And I thought we Americans needed to get the fawk over ourselves!



  32. 32

    LOOOOOOOOOOL Anyone else think he is like Borat meets Bruno??? Hey Perez you are our favorite blogger and you represent the U.S. you should post a video yelling at the Norwegians for stealing all of our Oreos. What if we went to his house and ate all his oreos in front of him and drank it with a cup of milk. The world might implode….Holy crap someone ship him a cow stat and a butter churn STAT STAT…. THIS IS AN EMERGENCY PEOPLE!!!!



  33. 33

    lol no one NEEDS butter



  34. 34

    I know the "butter-crisis" is hilarious and shameful – and no crisis at all really. Just a media hype…
    I just hope that most people gets that this “dude” is a parody – not a real person. :P



  35. 35

    omg, tommy is so hilarious! you do know that this is an actor doing a parody of stupid, stereotypical gay bloggers (i'm bisexual myself, but i do see the comedy of it)? haha, this is all a joke.



  36. 36

    alright! a new victim class on the im a victim web site is born!transgender butterless."i dont mean to be wallet"? huh

    Ok then, the time has come to set up a butter smuggling ring. We have lots and lots of butter here in Sweden and I'm willing to risk my life and drive in the first shipment. I'll be wearing a cow mask and driving a yellow van with a fake Norwegian license plate. Heaven help me if the authorities catch me. Another Swede bites the dust….



  38. 38

    Why don't they just use margarine until there's more butter…?



  39. 39

    mouth breathing homo



  40. 40

    Wazzupp gay pipl.
    U do realize that thiz iz an ironic joke?
    No?
    Irony seems hard to catch sometimes…
    For sure I know kidz have trouble getting it.



  41. 41

    Oh no…..

    Perez Hilton does not understand the irony in the video ;)

  42. Ammy says – reply to this


    42

    Hahaha.This is hilarious. I'm Norwegian, and the fact that even Perez Hilton fell for this cracks me up. This guy has a fake blog and a ton of fake videoes. You guys need to check your facts. And we do not have a butter crisis. Americans are so good at blowing this out of proportion, and I'm glad this guy decided to pull a prank on you. Jokes on you, America. Haha.



  43. 43

    Norway: 1. USA: 0. This is a joke and the video is made for fun. The Norwegian celebrities and the inhabitants of Norway are laughing of you and Kate Perry for beliving in this :L Haha!



  44. 44

    What the heck!?
    Tommy comes from Norway, and so do I and ..
    The film which is just irony .. everyone in Norway knows that there is only irony ..
    If you foreign idiots think that's true, you're insanely stupid!
    lol



  45. 45

    Awe hehe. I find it cute that you even do some research on the situation with Tine and all. You should probably look up Tommylife though, and maybe use google translate or something. :)

  46. ThwiX says – reply to this


    46

    Rather butter crisis than economic crisis. U mad, USA?



  47. 47

    He's being sarcastic, and the blogger "Tommy" is not really him. Just made up! But we still have a butter crisis though :OO



  48. 48

    Ah, this is ridiculous Perez…this "norwegian blogger", is in fact a "norwegian comedian". It's all a fraud, a scheme, a funny little trick to give people like you and Katy Perry something to talk about. This guy, "Tommy", as his blogname goes by, is pretty much making fun of both you and the latter female for not being able to see through the decepetion that it is. I'm norwegian myself, and the 'butter crisis' isn't really all that serious.



  49. 49

    Okay, all you lame Norwegians posting comments like: I'm ashamed to be Norwegian… Get a grip. It's a joke! Nothing in the video is real. Maybe if you looked at some real news sites and not just PerezHilton.com you would have understood that (that's if you're so thick that you don't understand that the video's just for laughs).. To the rest of the world: Norway isn't freaking out cause there's no butter. It's just the tabloids blowing shit out of proportions and then USA thinking that we are serious.



  50. 50

    He is acting, pretending to be this stupid person called Tommy. If you google Tommylife you can find more videos from him..



  51. 51

    He is acting, pretending to be this stupid person called Tommy. If you google Tommylife you can fine more videos from him…



  52. 52

    Hmm….okay, no one seems to understand that this video is supposed to be a JOKE…..it's ironic (Spread the word!) Oh, and he's faking his bad english. This guy is known for his parody-persona, and this is just a slap-back to the Norwegian media for making this into a so called crisis. Crisis if we don't have this particular kind of butter to make christmas cookies? Really? Really??? Of course it's not, it's just some stupid person behind a desk who made this into something it's definitely not, and others helped the fire spread. Embarassed to be Norwegian, I don't know…the media here doesn't seem to be any smarter than in other countries, so…



  53. 53

    I don't want to be a norwegian anymore



  54. 54

    Hahaha! Can `t none of you understand That this video are for just a joke. This guy is actually named "Bjørnar Løberg" and work as an actor, but has made ​​his own character so he can share his sense of humor online. We in Norway laughs Also of the butter crisis. it is`nt a bigg deal, it just a little sad, naw in the christmas time. But we Can see the diferents of a joke and reality. So please think logically on this … Do you honestly believe that there is some that are That stupid, that this gay "Tommy". No there isn't! So please think bifore you talk ….!!!



  55. 55

    Okey, i have to say ; This dude is not for real. His blog is one of them "pretend-blogs", in other words, this is just a joke. He made up this caracter years ago and now, you silly little americans, ya'll have been fooled. It's just a joke. :p djeez.



  56. 56

    Jeeez people…He is taking the piss and he is an actor/fictitiouss blogger…



  57. 57

    Ho, Ho, Ho!!! Here's a gift to you all! Tommy's a comedian. And now he's making one out of Perez Hilton too. We don't know the word crisis in Norway, by the way: Any climate change is for the better, and butter shortage makes us fat. The only fear we've got is that someone takes our water away. Then we'd drown.



  58. 58

    I can not imagine that you are taking this seriously, "Tommy" is known to be a great comedian, and doing nothing but making jokes. I must just point out that he does not speak for the whole country, far from.
    Take it all together, some of you are even comedians and should really see that he just kidding. What is wrong with you since you obviously can not see he kidding? and butter crisis really is not as great as he has it.

    He might not get it him self, but to upload this video, was to take it a bit to far.
