The man next to me on the train is eating walnuts by using them to scoop butter from a whole block which he has just opened. AIBU to find this odd?

gross
is he eating butter with walnuts?

OohhItsNotHoxton Wed 25-Jan-17 19:36:25

confused YANBU hmm Tis odd.

Lean over and lick the whole top of the butter

TheNaze73 Wed 25-Jan-17 19:37:33

That is considered a delicacy in Basildon

Ugh. Yes, very odd, but then again, I have a friend that enjoys chips with ice cream. confused

Atkins diet? grin

It's weird and sounds gross. Yanbu.

I'm guessing we shouldn't knock it til we've tried it, but I'm also guessing nobody will come along volunteering to give it a go! Weird combo & even weirder place to tuck into a pack of butter. Mind you at least neither foodstuff is stinky, in that respect it's a fairly courteous if odd choice of snack grin

NormaSmuff pretty much, each mouthful is about 50% butter and 50% walnut. He's consumed about a quarter of a block of butter.

NormaSmuff Wed 25-Jan-17 19:42:38

well, each to their own hmm

<<might try it>> grin

Wondering how that compares peanut butter. I eat that with a spoon!

PotatoWaffleCob Wed 25-Jan-17 19:44:18

I'd eat walnuts dunked in butter. Not in public obviously but I'd give it a go. Butter makes all food 500% better.

WildebeestH Wed 25-Jan-17 19:46:09

Ah, could be the Atkins diet I suppose... he also has a small block of blue cheese which he is carefully cutting into cubes. He is very well-prepared: has a sharp knife and small sealable bags.

ShatnersBassoon Wed 25-Jan-17 19:47:21

I had walnuts atop cubes of Cheshire cheese earlier. Butter wouldn't be as nice I don't think, but I'll give it a go and report back.

That sounds quite delicious really.

PeanutJuice Wed 25-Jan-17 19:48:28

Name one thing that butter doesn't make better

KlingybunFistelvase Wed 25-Jan-17 19:48:45

Sounds like Atkins to me! T'is diet season too... <fancies self as a younger Miss Marple>.

NormaSmuff Wed 25-Jan-17 19:49:15

ASk him OP

"Are you on the Atkins Diet?"

BuntyFigglesworthSpiffington Wed 25-Jan-17 19:49:46

Butter, walnuts, and blue cheese? Definitely low carbing! Tell him to join the MN low carb threads for tips on tastier snacks 😂

Butter nutter

PeanutJuice, a girl after my own heart.

KlingybunFistelvase Wed 25-Jan-17 19:50:16

Don't people get ketone breath on Atkins? Can you sniff his breath op? grin

FuckOffDailyMailQuitQuotingMN Wed 25-Jan-17 19:51:30

I'd rather roast the walnuts in melted buttter than eat straight butter. That's hard core.

illegitimateMortificadospawn Wed 25-Jan-17 19:52:11

The size of my arse.

FuckOffDailyMailQuitQuotingMN Wed 25-Jan-17 19:52:33

Isn't there some thing where is you put butter on stuff it's "bulletproof"?

Bulletproof walnuts

To be honest he smells weirdly of coconut! hmm
