Can I get some butter and salt for the popcorn?
I can't imagine in what kind of case you can say that sentence. Asking butter sounds okay, but what do you do with salt? Isn't the popcorn made
with salt added?

    Often it is made with no salt at all. Here in the US it is customary to salt your own popcorn to suit your personal taste. There is nothing at all unusual about asking for salt for the popcorn.
