~glares at Severn~ Alright, Missy...
'Okay, first of all: CRUNCHY!!!!
smooth is for simple people who don't want complicated texture and variety in there [sic hehe] lives'
"is completely unfair...I must protest. I mean, to base a person's personality and life-interest around a peanut butter choice...tch...even in jest it didn't come across too well..."
I believe the only reason that YOU think that this comment didn't "come across too well" is because it hits a personal note! Are you indeed a person who loves texture (TRUE texture, not this smooth IS texture stuff…) in their life? Admit it, you just like to hang out with a bunch of forum geeks… sheesh!
"You and I might just need a little chat about individual ethnocentricism..."
This from the person that so vainly states:
"Sven and Elizabeth - look guys...really...smooth = best."
I didn't single anyone out! This was a PERSONAL belief. I mean, you're trying to rally up other people into the smooth group! How low! Obviously YOU are preoccupied with the superiority of the smooth group. Not I, who as a distinct, assertive individual simply stated my opinion. I did not classify other's choice as wrong… simply hindered and bland!
…and it's ethnocentrism. (I'm defensive about my typo, okay? )
~shakes head~ "[sic] hehe" Bloody, 'Zealander…
Now, let me tell a little something about smooth vs. creamy.
This is your argument?:
"Why not eat a peanut? but hey - why not eat a peanut? Smooth is the result of careful blending...and ohh the texture. It is the texture that does all..."
There IS no texture in smooth! It's just a slick little glob of spread! With crunchy, you get the best of both worlds! Smooth delicious waves of perfectly blended peanut butter, lusciously fused with little crunchy bits of peanuts… Smooth is good only for sticking to the roof of your mouth! Crunchy gives a sandwich PERSONALITY! Think about it, smooth is just moosh! On a sandwich, you have to have crunchy to get the MOST out of the peanut butter…to really taste it, and appreciate the smoky flavor of the peanuts used… Without the expert little chunks, it's just a sandwich with smashed fruit and depressed peanuts!
I mean, come on, what, are you from Australia or something???
*darn it! You caught the "there" before I edited…GRRR. Man, how certain things in an argument come back to bite you in the butt! (But a CRUNCHY-lovin' butt!)
Rock: I take it you want that sandwich NOW? Watch out Mr. Nin-jitsu….
P.S. What the heck is IN Vegemite & Marmite anyway? I've heard so many opinions on that stuff… and I still don't know what the heck it IS! (all I know, is I bet they would be better with crunchy peanut butter)
