From one of my favorite Craigslist “for sale” postings on The Upper East Side:
I forgot about Mr. Peanut but looking at him now I think he’s pretty cool! Also, his name is Mr. Peanut. Not some cheesy pun on peanut, but just what he is! Like if an almond company’s character was called Mr. Almond or if Oreck had Mr. Vacuum Cleaner…Mr. Fan, Mr. Mattress, etc.
