The Butcher’s Adele Biscuit Theory

Did I ever tell y’all about the Butcher’s belief that the video for Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” is an elaborate metaphor about making biscuits?

You have the flour, the water, the elaborate towers of shortning, and the heat. I asked about the salt and baking powder, but he says they could already be in the dry ingredients when the dude with the sword sifts them.

But what does it mean? What about the abstract making of biscuits adds to the meaning of the song? Or vise versa?

  1. That’s funny. My husband calls this song “Rolling Pin That Creep.” I think if you put the two concepts together (biscuits and rolling pin), you’ve really got something.
