Actually, it's not obvious to me either. As someone who is allergic to
peanuts, every time I read about this topic, what comes to my mind is
that I could never in a million years stay in a room where someone was
doing this, so the whole presentation is lost on me.

<<As for the morons who've never seen a peanut butter sandwich before>>

Huh? So, you mean all those morons like me who grew up in Britain and
other places where there was no such thing as peanut butter?

Seems to me that the idea of making peanut butter sandwiches is a good
one given the right audience. Howevever, it's limited to those who like
and/or can eat peanut butter, and to audiences in countries where peanut
butter exists.
