'No Need To Stir' Skippy Natural Peanut Butter Requires Stirring, Or A Straw

'No Need To Stir' Skippy Natural Peanut Butter Requires Stirring, Or A Straw

As any convenience-seeking American knows, the bane of natural peanut butter is its tendency to separate into an unspreadable sludge of crushed peanut and an eager-to-spill pond of oil.

Fans of CBS Show Jericho Send 10,800 lbs of Nuts to CBS

There’s a lighthearted but very serious backlash going on against CBS for canceling the show “Jericho.” We even got a letter about it… and we don’t exactly cover TV. In fact, we don’t exactly watch TV except for Weeds because it’s the greatest thing ever. Anyway, CBS canceled Jericho and the fans have responded by ordering 10,800 lbs of nuts and having them shipped to CBS.
