He was well ahead of his time. It's a piercing of course.

Agree with you on that. I do love the spats, though.

Anybody remember those commercials during March Madness? Not only is Mr. Peanut a dandy, he's also got serious game. Mad hops with some crazy hangtime, yo.

Sorry, I just lapsed into my Stuart Scott impersonation.

Uncle Moneybags from Monopoly is a favorite of mine. Unfortunately Hasbro has renamed him Mr. Monopoly. Uncle Moneybags testifying in front of the House Ways and Means Committee.

As I recall the story, which I may have seen on one of these fora, Planter's originally created Mr. Peanut as a toff (and I really think he is more of a toff than a dandy--the difference is subtle but real) to counteract a widespread public impression at the time that the peanut (or "ground nut," as it was also known) was a very low-class comestible--better relegated to animal fodder than human consumption.

I clearly have too much time on my hands.
I'm not so sure about that. As the father of a five-year-old girl, I can't imagine many better -- or more enjoyable -- uses for your time.

Not a moustache, I'm afraid, merely well developed melo-labial folds as seen below.

Certainly, Mr.Peanut has had some work done.

It must have been the inorganic chemicals that prompted this horror.

This is what the California attitude looks like. Mr.Pollock is right to be aghast.
