The Great American Peanut Tour

So I saw this giant peanut along the side of the road. (It was along US231 south of Dothan, AL which has a bit of peanut popularity.) It looks vaguely like the Nascar simulator that came to town a few months ago. Perhaps if was a simulator and you rode inside of it, it would simulate the life of a boiled peanut.
The trailer lists the National Peanut Board website, so I thought I’d go there and copy and paste some peanut fun facts.
Astronaut Allen B. Sheppard brought a peanut with him to the moon.
In August 1976, Tom Miller, a University of Colorado student, pushed a peanut to the top of Pike’s Peak with his nose(14,100 feet!). It took him 4 days, 23 hours,47 minutes and 3 seconds.
Archibutyrophobia (pronounced A’-ra-kid-bu-ti-ro-pho-bi-a) is the fear of getting peanut butter stuck to the roof of your mouth.
My new dog is named Peanut! (not actually listed on their website, but true nonetheless.)
