       Love Fabergé, love peanuts.
wagster, Mar 08 2009
  

       wouldn't you be tempted to eat it though?   

       btw - timely reminder - never eat the nibbles at an orgy (not even the fabergé ones)
po, Mar 08 2009
  

       Thanks [po], I was going to binge on pretzels at tonights sex party down the local crack house. I shall now remember to have a little something to eat before I go.
wagster, Mar 08 2009
  

       hey, what happened to MY invite?
po, Mar 08 2009
  

       Did I ever tell you guys about my Easter egg tragedy? I joyously gobbled up what I thought was a yummy Easter egg on a hunt one year. To my ultimate horror it was indeedy a real blue jay egg.   

       The yolk sort of gushed outta my mouth and ran down my chin on to my bright colorful new Easter dress.   

       My sister was never the same as she watched in shock and disbelief.   

       Oh yeah the idea. What a beautiful peanut 'cha got there [calum].
blissmiss, Mar 08 2009
  

       blissy that story is awfuk!
po, Mar 08 2009
  

       you bet kiddo. that's why I love birds now. Guilt guilt guilt.

       //Love Fabergé, love peanuts//
And the great smell of Brut.
AbsintheWithoutLeave, Mar 08 2009
  

       Can you explain your idea? Is it just a painted peanut?
plasticspoon, Mar 08 2009
  

       A Fabergé peanut would be a peanut with the same treatment as the eggs - not just painted, but diamond-encrusted, and when you look inside there's perhaps a tiny little gem-encrusted circus elephant in one side, and it makes a trumpeting sound when you shake it. Something like that.
jutta, Mar 08 2009
  

       I know what Faberge eggs are. I assumed he wasn't going to put diamonds on his peanuts.
plasticspoon, Mar 08 2009
  

       I don't think these would be for eating any more than the eggs are!
[SFX: static crackle] Mr. Hirst, please pick up the diamond-encrusted courtesy phone.

       //I know what Faberge eggs are. I assumed he wasn't going to put diamonds on his peanuts.//
there's a tagline in there somewhere...
FlyingToaster, Mar 08 2009
  

       shorten that to *nuts* and that's hilarious.
po, Mar 08 2009
  

       I think it's the alliterative aspect...
FlyingToaster, Mar 08 2009
  

       Oh, I get it.
plasticspoon, Mar 08 2009
  

       yes yes it's awfukilly strong.
blissmiss, Mar 09 2009
  

       I love brevity but there is such a thing as too much brevity.
simonj, Mar 11 2009
  

       Especially when it comes to an idea of this magnitude!
blissmiss, Mar 11 2009
  

       i have a deathly faberge allergy.
k_sra, Mar 12 2009
  

       That will save you some money then k_sra.   

       Is this idea anything to do with Jimmy Carter? [link]
