I see you had one nerve left and someone posing as me posted that heresy and stepped on that nerve.

Trouble is, once people start believing you are not a serious writer then you are finished. The last thing we need is people thinking this Peanut Brittle thing is all made up.

Yes indeed. I have punished the child who made that horrible post. "Never, never, never make anything up about PB, Winston Churchill", 1941.

You know, I've been thinking.

Many people in history have been shown to have made stupid individual decisions, or indeed have a whole career worth of crass behaviour behind them. A great number of these have been shown to have been under the influence of BPB - Dick Van Dyke for example - when he thought he could do a cockney accent or indeed James Coburn trying dismally to play an Aussie in The Great Escape.

But how many of life's great blunderers could not blame "the brittle" (As we in the Hood, call it) but were in fact just complete and utter, 24-carat ********?

So there you have it - no idea what the man is talking about, but it sounds serious.....

It's hard to believe that no one has touched on the single greatest controversy surrounding peanut-brittle, that being whether its salted or unsalted.


The opening phrase "Salted, or not salted, that is the question" from the play "Peanuts" proves that William Shakespeare was greatly concerned with this controversial issue.

Yes Shakespeare was greatly concerned about this. He passed a petition around Uttoxeter to require local council to provide free Peanut Brittle to all citizens. But Uttoxeter had two powerful Peanut Brittle importers, John and Peter, who controlled the local PB market and Shakespeare's drive failed.

STOP PRESS! This is surely a world exclusive??!!?!?!

So Orm let's be clear: are you saying you have evidence that the Bard himself, the great William Shakespeare, actually wrote Peanuts? You mean it was he that created Snoopy, Linus, Charlie Brown (one of my personal heroes along with Eyeore) Peppermint Patty et al and not Schulz?

Wow that really is mega and knocks Ambrose into a cocked-hat (whatever that is). Tell me more - this is BIG!

No, no. Although William Shakespeare wrote peanuts all the other works you mention were in fact written by Edward de Vere, Earl of Oxford.

I remember it well from my time in Sofia; it featured the lead character Dimitar Browniv, who had a dog called Snoopov, and friends such as Linusov, Peppermint Patiov, Pigov Penov and Sallyov.

Which leads me to an important question - does eveyone in Bulgaria have a name ending in V?

Listen Orm - no one likes a smart alec However, you are quite right and I shall re-phrase the question:

Does every Bulgarian have a surname ending in V?

I suppose most of them have a surname that ends with a V. But I did remember they had a ruler Boris III, Tsar of Bulgaria, during WWII. But to be sure I looked him up and his full name was Boris Klemens Robert Maria Pius Ludwig Stanislaus Xaver and I suppose that his name sort of answers your question.

Good work Orm. Can I ask you to follow up on the Shakespeare/Peanuts story? See what you can get from asking around but only use top quality sources - try The National Enquirier and The Daily Star first.

Okay you can go more upmarket if you think that will help - try Razzle or NUTS perhaps. I know, go to the TV networks - Heraldo and Jeremy Kyle. Whatever, just get to the bottom of the story Orm you are wasting time - goodness, I wish Ambrose was still with us; he would have written a flippin book by now.

No. Her Majesty's Charge d'Affaires in Bulgaria Catherine Barber has a name that do not end with a V

Listen Orm - no one likes a smart alec However, you are quite right and I shall re-phrase the question:

Does every Bulgarian have a surname ending in V?

I suppose most of them have a surname that ends with a V. But I did remember they had a ruler Boris III, Tsar of Bulgaria, during WWII. But to be sure I looked him up and his full name was Boris Klemens Robert Maria Pius Ludwig Stanislaus Xaver and I suppose that his name sort of answers your question.

Good work Orm. Can I ask you to follow up on the Shakespeare/Peanuts story? See what you can get from asking around but only use top quality sources - try The National Enquirier and The Daily Star first.

Top quality sources?????

Edit: The National Enquirier and The Daily Star is top quality? Not even the models in the Daily Star are of top quality. I am shocked. Shocked!
Warspite1

Okay you can go more upmarket if you think that will help - try Razzle or NUTS perhaps. I know, go to the TV networks - Heraldo and Jeremy Kyle. Whatever, just get to the bottom of the story Orm you are wasting time - goodness, I wish Ambrose was still with us; he would have written a flippin book by now.

I will pray to Saint Ambrose for an answer on how to write a book on this subject in 30 minutes. Maybe that will help me.

30 mins? So it will be a two volume work then?

Agads! Wrong thread again.

Another amazing fact!! I have followed Formula 1 Motor Racing properly since 1982 and I never knew this:

Since crash helmets were first introduced into the sport, they have all been made from Peanut Brittle (not Brazilian for obvious reasons). One of the biggest problems has always been drivers getting hungry during a race. There have been instances where a driver has actually eaten part of his helmet during long races!

According to Ambroses' 2001 bestseller: Peanut Brittle the F1 years, this is the reason that one of the main questions asked of a prospective driver by a team owner during the interview process is "Do you have a sweet tooth?". A driver that says yes is unlikely to get a drive, a) because he might generally get too fat and thus not be able to fit in the car, and b) it is very distracting trying to eat your own crash helmet while heading towards the Parabolica at 200mph . Yet another scarcely believable fact from the world of Peanut Brittle

For information on Salted or Unsalted....The Salted variety was for long term preservation and used by Naval Personell exclusively, while the Un-salted was utilized for civilian consumption, (no not the disease), and has a very short shelf life, which explains why you have trouble finding same at a movie theatre. These excerpts are from "Principles of Peanut Brittle" by Babar the Elephant. (copywrited)

Ah planner 3. You are becoming quiet the advocate of PB. I wish you would tell us your preference.

planner 3, I do not wish to undermine Babar - I am an admirer of his works afterall - but I think he is barking up the wrong tree here. The Royal Navy never used PB for eating. PB was only put aboard ship for the explicit use of firing at the enemy. When fired in conjunction with a cannon ball, the PB would cause carnage amongst French sailors. For sure, the cannon ball did most damage, but almost certainly the PB probably helped with the general melee and confusion too. From Ambroses' 1978 blockbuster: Peanut Brittle; Never Mind The Cannon; Its The Peanut Brittle:

"The Royal Navy never used PB for eating. PB was only put aboard ship for the explicit use of firing at the enemy. When fired in conjunction with a cannon ball, the PB would cause carnage amongst French sailors. For sure, the cannon ball did most damage, but almost certainly the PB probably helped with the general melee and confusion too."

There, that's all the proof you need Babar.

Sometimes I forget about the humour where Peanut Brittle is concerned. I have seen some post F1 race interviews and was amazed at the size of most of the drivers. The lack of teeth is also distracting. XD!

warspite1, do you read anything other than Ambrose? XD!
