    Jack Russell Terrier ButterAlmost everyone loves to spend money on expensive, hand-crafted artisanal foods. And the ones who don’t are not terribly important to me because they’re in the way of my great financial success.  Because, dear friends, #97 on the list of the hundred best business idea’s I’ve had so far is: Jack Russell Terrier Butter! Yes, now you can be the first on the block to by a crock of the butter churned by nature’s most fun-loving, butter churn.

    We’ll be using custom design saddlebags that have loops to hold, eight sterilized bottles filled with sweet cream from a cow or goat. Ten, or a dozen, Jack Russells wearing saddle bags, will be released all at the same time to chase a mechanical rabbit around a 1/8th mile track. At top speed, only 15 minutes is needed to complete the process. All of the base butter is then placed in a sterilized sack and sealed inside. The sack has a soft, but very strong fiber covering. The sack and the Jack Russells are then brought together in a cold room for two hours. The temperature is kept at 55° F, so the terriers gather together on top of the sack to keep warm. As they move around, they help knead the buttery underneath to a fluffy, light consistency. Then, the butter is removed by hand-built experimental Butter Removing Robots and sealed into the beautiful JRT Brand Butter Crocks. Crocks sell for $39.00 for a quarter pound (1 normal stick), plus shipping and handling.

Instead, I’m dreaming of a creamy, buttery topping to put on my morning waffle. “Forty  dollars for a stick of butter”, I say to myself as I spread some butter onto the waffle. “Someone could get rich off that idea.”
