Pop quiz:

The 1885 version featured an additional word alongside Peanut Brittle.

But what was it, and what was the definition used.


Darn, my 1885 edition can't be opened, all the pages are stuck together with a brown substance mixed with peanuts.
Warspite1

Aha! In order to boost sales of the 1885 version (bearing in mind the disappointing debut containing just one word) the publishers did two things;

a) they increased the wordage by 100% i.e. they added a second word
b) they gave every purchaser a free gift - a slab of Peanut Brittle.

Looks like your slab was never taken out of the book and it has subsequently melted...

Unlucky Steiner because had it not melted and been in mint condition, the book would have been worth $4.3m (based on what I auctioned my version for last week at Christies).



AAAHH, that is one amazing post. Since we share a great love and knowledge of PB any chance you will buy me a 12th anniversary gift on May 9, 2012?
Warspite1

What sort of gift? What is the 12th anniversary? It's not an expensive one is it? Paper? cotton?


Uuhhh, the gift would be all the Matrix games I do not own, that's only 5 games.

Just thought I'd mention that there has only been one inanimate object ever to win an Oscar academy award.

In the 1986 film Cocoon the best supporting actor was to have gone to Don Ameche, however this was not to be the case.

In a scandalous case of product placement, Acme PB Incorporated (major shareholder Stephen Ambrose) decided to put its product in every scene possible; with dire consequences for Ameche.

Wailed Ameche, "I just can't live with this competition. This bar of PB is a genius."

Ameche was favourite for the prize but the Peanut brittle simply stole every scene it was in. "

"A moody, magnificent presence" wote one critic, "how to get your point of view across without saying anything" was another.

And true enough the peanut brittle walked off with the best supporting actor role.

Not a lot of people know that.

No, I really do not think many people know that. When I started this thread I wanted to edukate the world on the amazing history, present and future of PB. And warspite1, you have 5 gold stars by your name for helping.

Oh, I have heard an Ambrose manuscript has been found about PB(no other details) and a ghost writer is needed. You should apply for that gig.

A bit of WW2 history with PB as the star.

From Stephen Ambrose's book The Death Of Heydrich: The SS 'Butcher of Prague' - "Reinhard Heydrich (1904–1942)—chief of the security police, rabid anti-Semite, architect of the Final Solution, did not die from metal fragments as previously claimed. New evidence has surfaced that shows Hedrich had large amounts of Brazilian Peanut Brittle surrounding him in his car when he was attacked. New DNA tests show Heydrich died from a deadly infection caused by the BPB entering his rectum. Heydrich was known to visit a Berlin BPB den with Goering and Himmler."

So you are saying that BPB in the rectum is bad for you? ....only erm, I have a, um, friend who er, accidently sat on a piece of BPB by mistake and.... Should my friend be worried?

Your, er, friend, ahem, might want to do what the mafia does-seek out a doctor who will keep his mouth shut. Oh, you can't see any but NHS doctor's, right? I mean your friend can't.

No I....er I mean my friend has no choice but to visit the local NHS hospital. I'm - er - he's got an appointment sometime in 2013.

I hate it when BPB breaks in half - the edges aren't smooth are they?

2013? Your friend better find a doctor who works off grid.

The edges are sharp, so I have heard.

If you were in the evil States you could see an ER doc in a couple of hours. I mean your friend could.

BPB is dangerous to "supposed" non addicts. Your friend should join Orm in a mutual quest to get clean. Orm just rang me, he is apparently getting help in Amsterdam. He was calling from some strange type of cafe though.

I dont think it would have made any difference. The Road Runner was actually made entirely of Brazilian, Wily Coyote never had a hope.

Why do you contribute so much to Stephen Ambrose? Is it this author that you refer to. And if so why him? Could you please make a serious attempt to explain this to me since I do not understand why so many posts refer to Stephen Ambrose.

Orm that link is for Stephen E Ambrose. Stephen Ambrose, the prolific writer on all matters (and BPB fiend) is someone entirely different.

Could you then, please, provide me to a wiki page where I could read about the (in)famous writer Stephen Ambrose?

Why do you contribute so much to Stephen Ambrose? Is it this author that you refer to. And if so why him? Could you please make a serious attempt to explain this to me since I do not understand why so many posts refer to Stephen Ambrose.

Orm that link is for Stephen E Ambrose. Stephen Ambrose, the prolific writer on all matters (and BPB fiend) is someone entirely different.



OH my. Warspite1, how can you make such an elementary mistake. Stephen Ambrose is the pen name for Stephen E Ambrose. Ambrose did not want the world to realize he was a compulsive author. According to the 2012 book, JUST WHO IS STEPHEN AMBROSE?, by Stephen E Ambrose, Ambrose is "...my alter ego. For 50 years I was worried that if the world knew I was Stephen Ambrose and saw how many books I wrote, then my sales might fall. But my friend David McCullough convinced me recently that most people were figuring out Stephen Ambrose is me."

NO! Stephen E Ambrose I'm sure has a pen name but its not Stephen Ambrose! Stephen Ambrose is a pen name in itself. "Ambrose" and his whole family had their identities changed by the witness protection program after helping to put five of America's biggest hoodlums in jail. The bounty on his, and his family's head, was huge as can be imagined and his whole family had to go into hiding. They had their names changed, identity and everything. Even now, long after Ambroses' death, his family are still top targets for execution. The disguise needed to be really good to foil any attempts to get to him.

Stephen Ambrose is, in real life, Steven Ambrose and......

Yes? Confused? Best we leave it be. Put down the BPB Mr. Banker.
