I had to share this with you.

One of my favorite Web sites,, has a piece about Mr. Peanut, which appears below. It appears Mr. Obici’s company is planning to give Mr. Peanut a makeover.

The NY Times reports that the public will soon be able to vote on a new wardrobe change for Mr. Peanut. The four options include adding either: 1) a bow tie 2) cuff links 3) a pocket watch or 4) keeping Mr. Peanut the same.
