Buttery Smooth?

Anybody else tired of this expression? It pops up everywhere when describing various products. We really can't think of anything better to say than buttery smooth? The last thing I want to associate with my electronics is what I put on my toast. Nobody uses butter as a lubricant except in cooking. How did this cross over to gadgets? It's true that if I greased up my phone it would slide out of my hand in a way that I would want my browser to scroll but come on...butter? Why not silk, or satin, or some other material or compound that denotes the smoothness of an operation? I know I'm being stupid but am I the only one? Is this getting old for anyone else? We need to think of a new analogy.
