I can't believe it's not Acapulco Gold

If 1980s comedies told me anything about babysitting, it was that it was a profession fraught with wacky misunderstandings. Well, it looks like nothing much has changed since then:
A Pennsylvania woman will stand trial on charges she fed marijuana-laced margarine to a 12-year-old girl she was baby-sitting, as well as two other children at her home.

The 12-year-old's mother called Upper Burrell Township police after discovering the drugs in a tub of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter in 22-year-old Stevie Hickey's freezer. The woman tells police Hickey spread the substance on two pieces of toast that Hickey gave to the girl.

Police say Hickey told the girl it was "parsley butter" but later acknowledged to police that it was marijuana.
Well, I guess we can all breathe a sigh of relief, seeing as how she didn't serve the tot some "salted butter," with great big rocks of "salt" that she'd stashed in her freezer.
