The Popcorn Stand: Peanut butter belongs in a cup, not on a car

Now this isn’t how you’re supposed to use peanut butter.

A woman in Wisconsin spread peanut butter on about 30 cars in some kind of anti-Donald Trump protest.

Chelsea Ferguson, 32, was arrested after her bizarre protest in which she apparently thought all of the cars were owned by Trump supporters. The brand she used was Jif so now I’m sure Jif is going to have to come out with some kind of statement saying we at Jif don’t approve of the spreading of our peanut butter on cars in any way.

This woman’s actions upset me not because of any political consequences but because that’s just an awful waste of peanut butter. I’m a pretty big peanut butter fan, so obviously I’m a huge fan of Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups.

I also like the simple things in life like peanut butter on crackers. Or a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Peanut butter and crackers never fails as a late night snack. I can even eat peanut butter straight out of the jar.

Although the way this election has been going, I guess it’s not so bad this woman used peanut butter in this sinister fashion. She could have done a lot worse.

And in a way, it really seems appropriate. Because this election has resembled one huge food fight. This election reminds me of the scene in “Animal House” in which John Belushi starts the food fight. It seems candidates just grab whatever they can and throw it at their opponents.

Just stay away from my peanut butter jar.
