Professional shopper Betty Botter has hit the news again following her investigation on behalf of the BBC's Watchdog Programme into the butter buying habits of the British public.
Betty Botter was invited onto the programme by the tall, leggy presenter.....er....... Nicky Campbell. He chose her because of her fame from some years back when Betty Botter bought some butter that was bitter.
She said: "If I had put it in my batter, it would have made my batter bitter. A bit of better butter would have made my batter better. So I bought a bit of butter, better than the bitter butter, put it in my batter, and the batter was not bitter, so it was indeed better that I had bought a bit of better butter."
The ides for this particular investigation came about when the Watchdog team interviewed an anonymous whistle-blower, Sally Rogerswell, from one of the country's major advertising agencies, which also wants to remain anonymous, Acme Marketing of Hull. She explains:
"I was really horrified some years ago. A company came to us with a new butter-substitution product they wanted us to launch. So as not to fall foul of Trading Standards, they chose to give it a genuine name to reflect the quality of the product. I was account manager at the time, and didn't think their product name "I can't believe it's not better" would endear it towards encouraging sales. So we changed the name to Flora."
