    Mr. Peanut has died as a result of a road accident. Born in 1916, Mr. Peanut served as longtime mascot for Planters, an American snack-food company and division of Kraft Foods. At the time of his death, Mr. Peanut was traveling with two friends, actor Wesley Snipes and comedian Matt Walsh. According to news sources, Mr. Peanut acted quickly and selflessly, sacrificing his own life to save Snipes and Walsh. The Planters Nuttmobile was totaled as a result of this horrific accident. As the world mourns his loss, thoughts and prayers go out to Mr. Peanut's family, friends, fans and colleagues at Planters.

    It's getting harder and harder to differentiate between articles from The Onion and Super Bowl ad campaigns.

    Maybe they'll follow it up with a Six Million Dollar Man themed campaign: "we can rebuild him, make him better...." :-popcorn:

    May he roast in peace.:shh:

    Look for them to go for something a little more gender-neutral. Remember the SNL character Pat? Pat Peanut! Perfect fit. ;)

    At 104 he was just a shell of the peanut he once was.

    His remains were spread over a bowl of ice cream with chocolate sauce.
