    Cajun Boiled peanutes especially rock. They are always awesome when you pull off the side of the road and get a huge bag for $3-4 from a good old boy selling them from a huge pot in the country. I fell in love with boiled peanuts instantly after I moved to the South and experienced them for the first time.

    I'd love to try boiled peanuts, never seen them anywhere besides blogs like this. The man breaking into the restaurant- was he high?! Also, how classless is it for this guy to sue White Castle- will he try to sue McD's for making him obese as well? How about Burger King for something as well, like the commercials not featuring the creepy king? And sue Wendy's- just because- for good measure!

    New York Post. "Portly patron sues for bigger booths." I look at his photo and I see a fat, lazy, entitlement minded idiot that wants everyone to cater to his every whim. Ridiculous. Idiocracy in the making.

    It's about Goobers! Cool! Sadly, I'm not a fan of boled paynuhts.
    There's a reason "goobers" & "loogies" mean the same thing.
