What???? What???? Okay, I'm Stupid

I love peanut butter. I keep a couple of jars of peanut butter at work, and a couple of jars of peanut butter at home. I keep both the smooth and crunchy on hand at both places to suit my mood.

I have a brand preference which is Jif peanut butter. I will eat Peter Pan or Skippy in a pinch, but clearly Jif is my brand.

Finally, we pronounce peanut butter here in the south as, pea-nut budder. We stretch out the peanut part with an emphasis on pea. Folks in other parts of the country pronounce peanuts almost the way they would say penis. This confuses me.

Now there has been some interesting news lately about a contaminated batch of Peter Pan peanut butter and a product recall of all affected batches.

I was in the shower this morning with the TV cut up so I could hear the news. A fellow on the national news was talking about, and this is what I heard, he was talking about jars of contaminated penises.

I yelled to Gigi, “What, contaminated penises?”

She calmly fires back some term like, “you idiot!”

Then she explained that the fellow had a Midwestern accent and he was talking about peanuts.

There are actually way too many contaminated penises in the world. Isn't that one of the reasons for latex condoms? So next time you go grocery shopping, make sure you have some, just in case. You never know when you'll get the urge to, well, you know, buy some of that gooey stuff.
