    [​IMG] The deft posture, and jocular smile all attest to one who is apt in wit, and niceties of civilization-witnessed by the white kid gloves. Clearly, an example for the children.

    Plus he's showing a decent amount of sleeve.

    I like how he's sporting many of the items mentioned in the "can't wear" thread over at AA. Way to show 'em, Mr. Peanut.

    Mr.Peanut is timeless. He resists change in a playfully disdainful way, glinting through his monocle like a newly arrived Fritz Lang.

    Top hat, monocle, gloves, stick and spats. Of course, one would have to be a nut to wear that garb today[​IMG]

    A disturbing thought: Where does Mr. Peanut's monocle chain attach? His shell?

    Just two days ago, my six year old daughter and I--sharing a can of honey roasted nuts--were discussing the relative merits of the various incarnations of Mr. Peanut. She was a backer of the earlier, slightly plumper version. I felt today's version was superior, at once both streamlined and classic.

    I clearly have too much time on my hands.

    I do think "monogramming" your title and surname on your tophat is a little garish.

    Apparently, there's a "contest" to determine how to accessorize Mr. Planter in honor of his 100th birthday. Where better to debate the merits of the addition of a bow tie, pocket watch or cuff links than here?

    I can't decide between the bow tie or the cufflinks, although I am leaning toward the later as it is a subtle change. The pocket watch will not do.

    I went for the cufflinks. But the bow tie has a pretty solid plurality.

    The pocket watch makes him look like a Borg. I went with the bow.

    Perhaps, but I doubt he's nearly as weird as Herr Lang.

    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. [​IMG] Uncle Moneybags testifying in front of the House Ways and Means Committee. [​IMG]
