No one is sure exactly why the butter was buried in bogs — some think it was sometimes an offering to the gods — but evidence strongly suggests it was a method of preservation.

"Oh dear Gods, please accept this large chunk of butter. Should last you a while."

"Steve, we went over this, it's meant to preserve the butter, not as an offering to the gods."

"But what if the gods get hungry, Patrick?*

Steve gets whacked over the head with the butter.

"Oh dear Gods, please accept this offering of an idiot."

Patrick throws Steve in the bog, followed by the butter.
