ABSURD: Big Ten Football Game to Be “Peanut Free” in PC Deference to Peanut Allergies

By Debbie Schlussel

The jihad on peanuts is growing.

Remember the days when peanut allergies were unheard of, and you could still eat peanuts on an airplane or in a public school? Well, suddenly every single precious kid in the world developed allegedly deadly allergies. And as part of the peanutty political correctness, the legumes–roasted, salted, or otherwise–are not only off the menu at those places, but also now banned from a Big Ten football game. This weekend, Northwestern University’s game against the Minnesota Golden Gophers will be “peanut free.” I don’t know when so many kids started to magically become deathly ill from peanuts, but it’s really getting absurd when you have the politically correct food police guarding against peanuts at a big-time football game, with more gusto than they guard against bombs and other real threats.


Stop the Madness!

When the Northwestern Wildcats face off against the Minnesota Golden Gophers at Ryan Field in Evanston on Saturday, something will be missing: peanuts. Northwestern University is hosting its first peanut-free football game to give fans with allergies a chance to focus on the game instead of worrying about negative reactions to the popular stadium snack, which can range from mild irritation to life-threatening anaphylactic shock.

That’s a big draw for Joyce Mason’s family, Northwestern fans from Gurnee. Mason’s daughter Julie, 13, has a potentially life-threatening peanut allergy. Safeguards such as wiping down the seats and traveling with two EpiPens to counter severe reactions aren’t always enough. At a Cubs game a few years ago, Julie broke out in hives and began wheezing despite taking all of those precautions, Mason said, so now they attend only peanut-free games.

Huh? If you have to be that much of a peanut Nazi in order to live, here’s a tip: Don’t. Go. To. The. Game. Stay home, and don’t make everyone else bow to your special needs. This is really all about selfishness, NOT about health.

Peanut allergies affect about five of every 1,000 Americans and are on the rise, said Raoul Wolf, chief of the pediatric allergy and immunology section at University of Chicago Medicine. Though closed environments like airplanes pose a greater danger, stadiums can be “a huge risk,” Wolf said. “If you can smell the peanuts, there’s enough protein in the air to cause a bad reaction. For the most sensitive patients, it’s not a risk worth taking.”

Wow, so because a half of a percent of Americans are affected by peanut allergies, everyone else has to abstain from them? Given that percentage is just under the seven-tenths of a percent of Americans who are Muslim, perhaps we should ban all pig and other non-halal products from all sports stadiums, too. Don’t worry, that’s coming in our future. And I view these Peanazis with the same disdain (though the peanut allergists don’t fly planes into buildings, shoot up Army bases, and try to blow up Americans with underwear and shoes). They want all of us to change our lifestyles and bend over for them.

Several major and minor league baseball teams, including the White Sox, Cubs and Kane County Cougars have banned peanuts in certain sections at select games, as have the Wolves hockey team. But the Wildcats may be the first college team to host an allergy-friendly game, said Dan Yopchick, a Northwestern spokesman. The NCAA does not track which teams offer peanut-free events.

No peanut products will be sold or permitted inside Ryan Field on Saturday. They’ve already started powerwashing the stadium’s nearly 50,000 seats to eliminate any peanut residue.

I wonder what happens if someone sneaks a bag of peanuts into the stadium and starts eating them. Do they get arrested for assault or terrorism?

While some will miss a favorite game-day food, it will be a huge relief for fans with allergies, said Julie Campbell, president of the not-for-profit Illinois Food Allergy Education Association.

“When the whole game is peanut-free, you can relax and enjoy the game like everybody else,” Campbell said.

Uh, no, you are not like everybody else. Everybody else (or at least most of them) doesn’t impose their very specialized food restrictions on you. Just the other way around.

Like I asked before, when did America become so sensitive to peanuts? And why?

I propose a special stadium for a new “No You Can’t” football and baseball league. The place will be perfect for gluten-free, vegan, peanut-allergic, Muslim sports fans. The only thing served will be vegetables, and there will be a few gaunt, skeletal fans in attendance, while the rest of Americans are allowed to live their lives as they please and eat what they want where they want.

Just say “no” to the food Nazis.


Is Mr. Peanut an Endangered Species?

Miss Debrra, what a cold, unfeeling person you are. I hope all your children get Lou Kimia. Then you will no what itz like. You are an evil person, cold, a wikked which, a VERY wikked which. I am going to call sum hakker frens of mine and get them to come hear and burn your web site down to the groun. Then you will no what itz like. You and all your frens hear are mean, just plane mean. One day I will get a bunch of frens of mind to go to Thetroit and fynd your hous. Then you will no what itz lyke.

Oh, I am a consservator, not a librul.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on October 18, 2013 at 11:49 am

If you don’t want to go to a nut-free game, then Don’t. Go. To. The. Game. Practice what you preach, Ms. Schlussel. But don’t get in the way of letting some kids have a chance to go ONCE – safely. They didn’t ask for a compromised immune system, much you like didn’t ask to be born without a heart.

Reason on October 18, 2013 at 11:50 am

    Reason, is your nick ironic? No, it just shows self-deception. Debbie uses this event as an example of a larger phenomenon. So this “it’s only one game” business totally misses the point.

    You are the problem.

    skzion on October 18, 2013 at 11:58 am

      I completely understood the point. I realize the author was trying to explain this has happened at other venues. However, I would hardly call it a “phenomenon.” We’re talking less than a fraction of a percent of peanut-free games per thousands of games each year. The author’s “solution” suggests people with allergies should stay closeted, home, away from the main “regular” people. This is akin to saying people in wheelchairs should stay home if no ramp is available at the game. Or that people who are deaf should stay home from various venues rather than request an interpreter. Unfortunately, for some peanut-allergic kids, the ONLY way to be able to attend a game safely is to not serve peanuts. And so, the kind people of Northwestern have offered to create a safe space – for ONE day. This apparently really offends people who need 24/7 access to peanuts. It’s mind boggling. I’m
      sorry you think I’m the problem. I really wish you understood the reality of food allergies. The author calls the epidemic “magical”. One thing I think everyone can agree on is that a cure could not come soon enough.

      Reason on October 18, 2013 at 5:02 pm

Debee, you are jus like everyone from Thetroit. You are harborring lawbreakers here. Alfonso has put up too many posts that do not meen anything. That is against internet law. This bandwidth cood have been used by my group to make good pointz. I am a law yer and I will sue you and Fernando too. I no relatives of his in the Philippines. They hav e-mailed me to say he is mean spirit and evil. They said he stole cupcakes from a spermarket wen he was 12. They also sed his name is not Octavio. It is in fact Heriberto.

You shood no beter becuz yoo are a law yer too. I have the number of your bar and I am going ther todey and tell them not to serv you anny drinkz. That is called disbarrd. You are a mean spirit person also, and you hate childdren. It is evil to hate childdren becuz Mo Hamid sed so. You are not going to get 72 vergens wen you dye. You are going strait to heck. I cannot say the other werd becuz it is a bad werd, but you no what that is. That is wher you are going wen you dye.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on October 18, 2013 at 12:08 pm

Friends, I beg you not to resort to name-calling on this ABSURD message of hate. When you do this, you become as bad as the messenger(s). I have contacted two so-called sponsors of this site: FLOR and Joss & Main.

FLOR contacted me immediately this morning. The company’s Director of Marketing, said: “I again thank you for taking the initiative to write that email; without it we would have never known. If you would be so kind as to inform anyone who you have shown this to that we have zero affiliation with this woman and her nonsense I would appreciate it.” Thank you, Patrick Skertich, Director, Marketing

I hope I hear from Joss & Main, too. Many of these firms buy ad packages and have no idea where their ads may be randomly redirected online. I urge others of you to contact the other advertisers on this page and voice your outrage. Spewing hate under the guise of being witty or smart or clever or controversial is still hate. Please stop adding fuel to the fire. Stop engaging the name-callers. Clearly this person and her fans are over the moon to have hit such a cord. This was the intent. Responsibility, compassion and humanity played no part here. Trying to reach someone like this is beating your heads into the ground. Stay strong. Please advocate for your beautiful children by reaching out to the so-called sponsors, many of whom likely have no idea their ad dollars have gone to support such negativity and pollution.

    skunky: “Paydays are indeed a favourite! It’s the tasty candy bar you can pretend that it’s not fattening AND is actually a health-bar…”

    Interesting take. I was always fascinated by how a candy bar could be simultaneously very salty and sweet and not only be delicious, but also become one that I often choose above other peanut greats like Snickers, Peanut M&Ms and Mr. Goodbar.

    I was a little sad when they pulled the plug on chocolate-covered Paydays, but now I think I see that doing so sort of made it pedestrian – like the rest.

    I never liked Reeses Pieces but I’m simply aghast at the new, cruel, school-boy prank that is sweeping America: the one where they secretly slip in a few Reeses Pieces into the bowl of M&Ms at peanutallergian’s Halloween and school parties. It’s plain bullying gone too far.

    DS_ROCKS! on October 19, 2013 at 4:45 am

Seriously. There are 5 people defending this article. I’m willing to bet at least one of them is the writer herself and the others are her obsessed stalkers. Debbie, I could care less what your profession is, how intelligent you “allegedly” are, or where you “allegedly” went to school. Based on this ridiculous post and the comments from your 5-person fan club, you, and they, make me ashamed to call myself a conservative. Way to score one for the team.

Courtney on October 18, 2013 at 12:27 pm

Wow….If you can’t abstain from eating peanuts for a 2 hour football game maybe you should stay home f*ckface

BA on October 18, 2013 at 12:41 pm

I think Debbie deserves a lot of credit for holding fast to her views and not being intimidated by the slew of hostile comments this blog has been subjected to in the last day-and-a-half. There have been legal threats, campaigns to contact her sponsors, obscenity, ad hominem attacks, emotional onslaughts that ignore many of the substantive points that have been made in defense of her post, and infantile comments like Ronan’s an hour or so ago (if that is really a different person from those who have already commented).

I assume such comments are designed to anger supporters of Debbie, and try to get them to make poorly thought out comments, themselves. None of Debbie’s critics have expressly dissociated themselves from the obscenity, threats, ad hominem attacks, or other invective. We are left only with Diane’s contradictory message, vaguely criticizing name-calling (but with no specific dissociation from any prior comments), while at the same time using emotionally-laden epithets like “hate messages”, “pollution” and, indirectly “nonsense”, as global descriptions of all comments she is in disagreement with. Obviously approaches like this are not meant to foster serious discussion. They are just meant to browbeat and intimidate.

One of the strengths of this blog is saying things that others are afraid to say, whether about Muslims, anti-Semitic Poles, political and religious bureaucrats, and now advocates of those with peanut allergies. Like other PC advocates, these advocates rely on threats, intimidation of various kinds, personal invective, but logic and reasoned arguments clearly take a back seat.

Little Al on October 18, 2013 at 1:45 pm

Wow, really. You can’t live for 3 hours without peanuts, so some people with life-threatening allergies can enjoy a football game? I hope you acquire a life-threatening allergy. It’s really no fun having to walk on tenterhooks your whole life.

DJ on October 18, 2013 at 3:24 pm

    Diane, Allergy Mom, what do you think of DJ’s comment?

    Little Al on October 18, 2013 at 3:39 pm

      Little Al, I expect Diane and Allergy Mom will not reply intelligently to your invitation, if they reply at all.

      Diane, in particular, could have discouraged the type of language she now objects to at any point. She only does so now to cover her butt, i.e., so she can say “I urged them to avoid such language.”

      skzion on October 18, 2013 at 4:30 pm

How do you know the stadium is doing this just to be politically correct? Have you ever thought that they stand to profit from offering a peanut-free day?

Zsuzsi on October 18, 2013 at 3:49 pm

There isn’t really much difference. If political correctness is a means to an end, it is still part of the equation.

Little Al on October 18, 2013 at 3:53 pm

They are a business and have the right to have such a day. Isn’t it a conservative value to support businesses making their own decisions? If they want to make it pleasant for people to attend a single game and they make money from it, so be it. Maybe Debbie is the one who is overly sensitive and thinks it’s all about being politically correct. She’s acting like those nanny-state liberals who try to tell businesses what they can and can’t do. The height of hypocrisy! Considering peanut allergic reactions can be fatal it’s a real stretch to say they are trying to be politically correct. Maybe she should have taken her meds before writing this article.

Zsuzsi on October 18, 2013 at 4:25 pm

    Zsuzsi sez:

    “They are a business and have the right to have such a day. Isn’t it a conservative value to support businesses making their own decisions?”

    Poor Zsuzsi seems not to understand that we, the non-peanutters, also have a right to advocate for our own position with businesses. The peanutters really want regulation, as they are authoritarian personalities. But as of now they must settle for the kind of tactics that they have displayed on this blog.

    skzion on October 18, 2013 at 4:35 pm

Really Skzion, you think the stadium did this because they were intimidated by “peanutters”? That’s so ridiculous. Sorry, you sound really paranoid.

I know a stadium that offered a special day for Orthodox Jews where kosher food was served. People cried favourtism and the other side cried back “anti-semitism”. The stadium was simply offering a pleasant experience to a group that normally would feel uncomfortable/feel like they can’t be religiously observant at games. Stadiums have special “days” for all sorts of groups. It’s not a big deal!!

Zsuzsi on October 18, 2013 at 4:42 pm

    Z, what I know or suspect I say. Do not put words in my mouth.

    What I know is that you peanutters are fanatics. Your apparent leader, Diane–who can’t spell her own name–has already launched the kind of jihad against Debbie that I have every reason to expect she launches against others. As universities are full of fellow totalitarians, it wouldn’t surprise me if the decision were made spontaneously. But I expect some organizational pressure was indeed applied.

    Only a fanatic would compare ADDING a Kosher food or two to a non-Kosher menu to banning a food. One decision increases the number of options, the other decreases that number. Other regulars here have made this point, but fanatics will not listen.

    Fanatics want to be the only ones with a voice. That’s your group to a T. That’s why you peanutters are trying to go after Debbie’s advertisers, and why you hope she dies, etc.

    You have opened my eyes–but not in the way you think.

    skzion on October 18, 2013 at 5:24 pm

      Skzion, not to pat myself on the back but I had “Susie” sussed out a long time ago as a Libtard. Glad to see my record is intact and I haven’t mislabeled one yet.

      I can smell them planets away. They are so annoying I’m like The Princess & The Pea(nut) when it comes to them. Just a millimetre of them gives me great discomfort!

      Skunky on October 18, 2013 at 7:00 pm

        Skzion, “Susie” hasn’t popped up here for quite sometime but the last time he was here he was whinging about vegan/vegetarianism (which I somewhat agreed with him on as far as personal taste…) but I’ve long called him out on being a sh**-disturber here.

        Notice the last time he popped up was a food-based issue (vegans/vegetarians) too…that more than NOT sides on the Libtard side.

        I never forget the annoying ones thou’. Especially mini-cockroach sorts like “Susie”…

        Skunky on October 18, 2013 at 7:14 pm

          Now I remember Soozee “Sarsour”! Thanks Skunky.

          skzion on October 20, 2013 at 11:40 am

Oh wow this is too funny. Debbie we have already figured out that you post replies under the name “Little Al”. It’s so obvious. Little Al is always there for all your blogs ready to attack anyone who disagrees with you and just happens to have the exact same writing style as you do. Oh and he NEVER disagrees with you. Even the most loyal of all stalkers doesn’t do that. But now you not only attack commenters but you post a huge write up praising yourself. Lol I am so embarrassed for you. Do you also sleep with a picture of yourself and kiss the mirror in the morning? Your self obsession is the reason you have no one in your life but your 3-4 hardcore stalkers.

I guess any woman can cake on makeup and post an extremely photographed picture of themselves online and get a few creepy stalkers. It’s the same few men posting on every blog. This is because they are creepy pervs who can’t get attention from real women so the go talk to the one lady online who doesn’t tell them to get lost. Truth is if they knew what you looked like in real life they would find another woman to stalk. Have you noticed you have no female supporters posting?

Truth is you can get famous posting carp like this. You write stupid offensive things for shock value. One search of your name shows that NO ONE respects you as a journalist. You are just the typical crazed racist spewing your hate all over the internet. One day when we all die, the future generation will look back on people like you with disgust and embarrassment. Sort of the same way we all see Hitler.

Reality Check on October 18, 2013 at 4:43 pm

A really substantive comment by Reality Check. I guess my dismay over ad hominem attacks fell on deaf ears. Not surprising though, as the peanutters do not want to engage in substantive discussion. I have posted comments since the beginning of this discussion on various substantive matters, and virtually none have been answered.

BTW, conservatives’ support of business is not absolute. I would not support a business decision to promote affirmative action, or illegal immigration, for example. Policy decisions do not occur in a vacuum, and sometimes have to be weighed against each other to ensure the greatest amount of personal liberty, within broad parameters. In this case, the right of a business (Northwestern) to make its own decision must be weighted, as skzion indicated, against the right of 50,000 people to eat peanuts if they want, and balanced also against the right of an undisclosed number of people (almost certainly an extremely small number) to exist for one day in a peanut-free environment.

I responded to Zsuzsi’s question early in the discussion. I explained that Northwestern had suffered two defeats in a row, the second one a humiliating loss in a must-win game. I also pointed out that Northwestern’s support for football is not equal to that of football schools like Michigan or Ohio State, and that they were utilizing to a politically correct technique to gain increased support on campus. I also wondered whether the school was subjected to a barrage of comments similar to those experienced here.

Kosher food served? Were people told they could not bring their own non-Kosher food? What is the name of this stadium, and this team? When did it occur? Debbie has written in the past, criticizing Halal days at amusement parks and other venues.

BTW, I am a unique individual, I think for myself, and would appreciate disagreements to be expressed in substantive form, rather than in the form of personal attacks. When people defend their views primarily by personal attacks rather than by reasoned argument, discussion, such as it is, descends to an abysmally low level.

When people fiercely state their own opinions, lapse into invective when these opinions are challenged, and tolerate no disagreement or dissent, it is not hard to see, down the road that the more influence such individuals manage to secure, the less independent speech will exist. That is why I am engaging in this exchange of comments (I can’t really call it a discussion or dialogue) to the extent that I am. I consider free speech, as historically defined, an integral part of a free society.

Little Al on October 18, 2013 at 5:09 pm

    Well done, Little Al. But Soozee don’t care.

    skzion on October 20, 2013 at 11:42 am

Skzuzzion, your paranoia is showing again. I don’t know anyone named Diane. If you owned a stadium you would know that they have “special days” for different groups all the time. It gets people out who normally wouldn’t go to games. They sell more tickets that way. Smart business decision. You missed my whole point, all due to your paranoia.

Zsuzsi on October 18, 2013 at 5:56 pm

Oh boy, Where do we begin with this one? Debbie Schlussel is of Jewish decent and yet she compares a Peanut-Free football game to Nazi Germany. She is comparing people like myself who have a child with nut allergies to a political party that killed 6 million of her own ancestors. That’s an insult to me and to Jews. Next, slipping down the slope, she believes there will soon be a Halal game. Interesting she didn’t pick a Kosher game as an example. I have yet to hear about a Jew who didn’t keep Kosher that WENT INTO ANAPHYLACTIC SHOCK AND DIED. I guess Muslims don’t die either when they eat anything non-Halal. I’ll go ask the guy down the street who sells delicious Halal chicken. “Well, suddenly every single precious kid in the world developed allegedly deadly allergies.” No, 5 of every 1,000, according to your post. More recent studies show 2.1%. “I don’t know when so many kids started to magically become deathly ill from peanuts” – the rate’s tripled since 1997 – do your research. “This is really all about selfishness, NOT about health.” CORRECT. I selfishly want my child to go to a football game without me having anxiety. I also selfishly go to work to get paid money. And Northwestern selfishly is having a peanut free game because THEY WILL MAKE MONEY. My Nut Allergy Army walk the talk, and Northwestern will make money from this promotion. It is called free market capitalism. Love peanuts more than football? “Don’t. Go. To. The. Game.”

Max Morrow on October 18, 2013 at 6:13 pm

Reading is fundamental, Max Morrow. Debbie’s post did not say 5 out of 1,000. That was from a newspaper article that Debbie excerpted and quoted, because that was the article that contained the information on Northwestern’s peanut-free game.

More recent studies show 2.1%? Where are these studies? What was their methodology? Health studies can potentially be influenced by drug companies, which, possibly, in this case have a vested interest in making the percentage of those afflicted as high as possible.

I asked 450 comments ago for data re how many of the peanut allergies are severe — I am still waiting. I also asked for a percentage of those who outgrow their allergies. One commenter said only 20% but provided no support. I am still waiting for that.

I expressed doubt how rates of a non-contagious allergy could increase so dramatically. I am still waiting for a convincing explanation of that.

Why would there be a Halal game rather than a Kosher game? Because Islamic influence is rising exponentially all over the world, and the U.S. defers to Islam in spite of terrorist attack after terrorist attack.

I guess you meant Jewish ‘descent’ rather than ‘decent’. I explained in my prior comment how the intolerance of peanutters leads down a slippery slope to totalitarianism. Each suppression of free speech and dissent takes us one step closer, and I gave example after example of how the peanutters cannot tolerate free speech — threatening lawsuits, contacting sponsors, personal invective, etc.

You seem to have a very frivolous attitude towards religions practices. That is fine — you are entitled to your opinion, but it is just another example of a lack of courtesy and respect towards those who disagree with you.

And why couldn’t your last sentence apply equally to the handful (if that many) who cannot tolerate peanuts? (and BTW, it is “my” having anxiety, not “me” having anxiety.)

Little Al on October 18, 2013 at 6:28 pm

I do have to give the peanutters credit for one thing though– unless I overlooked something, there have not been any anti-semitic comments. Unusual for a post on this blog.

Little Al on October 18, 2013 at 6:38 pm

And all you Nazi-Nutters in high dudgeon over DS’ GREAT article on Peanut Nazis who keep thinking Little Al is DS, you are so wrong.

Little Al is a regular here and I take it as a complement that you think he and DS think so much alike. I know I revere both of them. I’m proud to be on their sides on this issue.

Now, I’m gonna make a tasty PB&J sanger! Yummo! 😛

Skunky on October 18, 2013 at 7:05 pm

    Thanks, Skunky! Likewise.

    Little Al on October 18, 2013 at 7:13 pm

And with that, I will depart from this post. Enough is enough.

Little Al on October 18, 2013 at 7:25 pm

I’m sure that if the author of this article was affected personally by a life-threatning food allergy, she would be yelling the loudest if someone was near her with the allergen.

Spend a day with someone that has a deadly food allergy and perhaps you will see how exciting it is for them to go to an allergen free event.

Brenda Mize on October 18, 2013 at 7:41 pm

Reality Check, you need one. We all KNOW what Debbie looks like, because there are plenty of videos that show her in much more recent times than the picture that heads up her web site. Also, if you do a search for “Debbie Schlussel” and go to ‘images,’ you can see much more recent pictures of her. Okay, she doesn’t look like the picture on the masthead of the web site. Big deal. Ever see 306 year old gossip columnists who have pictures of themselves next to their column which were taken when they were 32? Get over yourself.

Hey Max, you referred to Debbie as being of “Jewish decent.” You’re right, she is a “decent” Jew. She’s a decent human being too, which is more than I can say for the two of you who put up 315,769 posts under 5,361 aliases, calling her names and wishing all sorts of vile things against her, her non-existent children, and everyone associated with her, past, present and future.

You people, all two of you, I’m going to tell you this much. I’m off from farm work tomorrow, and probably won’t head out to the fields until Sunday afternoon. I have plenty of cigars, a little rum, coffee and plenty of food. If you want to continue this ridiculous, absolutely beyond childish nonsense, I can play that game. I’d prefer NOT to, because I’d rather comport myself in a different manner. Notice, I never did anything like this in ten months since logging on here, and outside of some flame wars at another web site way back between 534-486 B.C., I generally don’t do this.

But I’m telling you, I, Little Al, Sean R., Mr. Grant and others have put up plenty of TRUE SUBSTANCE which you OH, SO SMART, EDUCATED, CONSERVATIVE professionals have not properly addressed. Instead, you have continued your selfish, empty, vicious diatribes. Wanna be assholes? I can be a bigger asshole than all of you put together. Know why? And THIS I can BACK UP in spades. It’s because I AM The Resident Dumb Blond(e). I STILL don’t know if it’s chicken or fish, and because of that, we blond(e)s have a special way of making assholes out of ourselves WHILE EXPOSING THE REST OF THE WORLD’S OWN HYPOCRISIES AND EMPTINESS. Believe it. Let’s play.

IT’S ON!!!

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on October 18, 2013 at 8:05 pm

Now that this thread hi-jacked by nutters is slowly dying down, I think the regulars should post a “Final Thought” like how pervy, old Jerry Springer did (does?) at the end of his show to make it seem like he’s rising above the riff-raff.

I’d get a kick (but won’t personally put in the time myself…) out of finding out how many of these peanut-nazis started their post’s with “WOW”. A phenomena of stupidity that Skzion cleverly pointed out years ago.

I want most here to remember how a rabid ITALKIT came out to slag DS yet again. I know she has a THIRD handle now (“Bat Sh** Crazy” or something like that) but she really tried to stick the knife in, didn’t she? Too bad she used a stale piece o’ spaghetti…you know how easily those slim sticks break before they are cooked. Jealous, envy (smiling faces, smiling faces they lie…The Undisputed Truth…) can really make a nutter out of an old, devious battle-axe!

Did DS fire herself yet? So many wished for her firing not knowing she is her own boss. Nutters…

And finally, DSR…Paydays are indeed a favourite! It’s the tasty candy bar you can pretend that it’s not fattening AND is actually a health-bar…I’ve done that quite a few times. I also loved the fun-sized versions in my tricks or treats bag all those years ago! Never heard of the chocolate covered ones…that’d be like dying of a peanut allergy and waking up in heaven thou’…

Thank you George Washington Carver and long live PB&J!!!!

Skunky on October 18, 2013 at 8:10 pm

George Washington Carver, one of my favorite historic Americans. STILL affecting our lives every day. An absolutely brilliant man, just amazing the things he thought of and did.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on October 18, 2013 at 8:12 pm

You are a selfish, cold-hearted, CLUELESS, person…..Until you have walked in the shoes of a parent of a child with a food allergy, you have not right WHATSOEVER to de-mean food allergies and their significance! Let me know when you watch one of your children’s faces cover with hives, eyes and mouth start to swell shut and they have to be rushed to an Emergency Room….THEN I would love to hear your opinion on having to give up peanuts for a 3 hour football game!

concerned mother on October 18, 2013 at 9:10 pm

Sorry, that’s neither original nor angry enough. Try again. Oh, by the way, wanna sign that petition to get Debbie fired? ROTFLMAO!!!

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on October 18, 2013 at 9:54 pm

Oh, almost forgot. While all you folks were here for the peanutty flame fest, the Yankees won the World Series. Just so you know.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on October 18, 2013 at 9:55 pm

Lol I find it funny that the hardcore Debbie supporters aka “Debbie with a fake name” get mad at us for name calling. Do you not see that Debbie cast the first stone calling us Penatzis in her article? She is the one who first started the “hate mail” and needless name calling. Since then you all have called us names in nearly every post including the one where you judge us for calling names. Hey kettle, you’re black.

You argue that it is her first amendment right to state her opinion. I agree 100% She has every right to say whatever demands thing she wants and I have every right to tell her she is bat shit crazy. You can’t be hypocritical. If you can do it, so can we.

I have learned something tonight though. Crazy self absorbed women and their creepy stalkers can not be reasoned with. You read what you want and ignore the rest. Staying here is pointless as it just feeds the trolls. I will give her no more website hits. That is exactly what she wants as it makes her more money. She has ruined herself with her hate. Every post she makes is a hateful rant aimed at someone. What a horrible empty life she must have. Good luck with that.

Reality Check on October 18, 2013 at 10:04 pm

And exactly what kind of stalks would we be? Hmmmmmmm, celery? Celery’s good. Peanuts don’t grow on stalks, do they? Stalking Debbie? Let’s see, stalking Debbie. Oh yeah, I’m poor and I worked for 15 years for attorneys, during a recent 21 year period of my life. That’s it, I’m stalking Debbie for a JOB, that’s it. I wanna sit on Debbie’s lap and take dictation.

But, but, in REALITY, CHECK it ooooouuuuuut. Debbie got fired, the Yankees won the World Series, so I guess I’m outta luck, right? Y’know, I’m REALLY stalking Skunky, that’s the secret, but don’t tell anyone. SHHHHHHHHHHH, DON’T TELL SKUNKY, I’m stalking her for a PayDay. Yup, I’m gonna have a job with Skunky, eating her PayDays for a pay day. BIG checks in that, y’know, eating Skunky’s candy. Y’know, mumbo jumbo, peanut gumbo. Boiling in oil, that kind of stuff, sort of like they used to on The Munsters.

Okay, just saw Debbie go past my window, yeah, SHHHHHHH, don’t tell anyone, Debbie’s living on my farm, feeding my cousin’s horses for, for, for, choke, giggle, choke, feeding my cousin’s horses for . . .


Oooooohhhhhhh, the joys, anguish, trials and tribulations of being The Resident Dumb Blond(e), living in such ignorant bliss. I STILL don’t know if it’s chicken or fish. Hey, that almost rhymes, like LeAnn, . . .


Alfredo from Puerto Rico on October 18, 2013 at 10:19 pm

WTF – 500+ posts over this ONE ARTICLE. Just. This. One. Freaking. Article.

But why stop at peanut allergies?

What about us diabetics: types 1 and 2 plus “gestational” diabetics?

I mean sugar is bad. It’s evil. It’s Satan.

I’d say ban those sugary treats except those sweetened with Stevia. That’s right – STEVIA. Google the damn word and you’ll get the picture. ’cause you don’t want us diabetics to lose our limbs to gangrene or our eyesight or our damn freaking kidneys, eh? Especially after a Big 10 football game. No no no no no.

And for the sake of us recovering alkies, please lose the beer. The sight and scent of that stuff will induce jonesing in us juice junkies. Nectar of the Gods? FEH! Satan’s Piss is more like that. Does it take a few DUI charges and drunk-driving deaths to make these peeps realize that booze is evil? Get it out. Now.

Oh, and what’s in those wieners and those hamburgers. Don’t you know that some of the biggest sports fans are raw vegans? I’m sorry, but I’m quite sure they don’t want ANY sporting event condoning and perpetuating the slaughter of innocent piggies and moo-cows for the consumption of corpulent drunk sexist fratboys who believe that by ingesting some dead animals and fermented grain by-products that their penises would enlarge and therefore perpetuate the rape-culture inherent in College Football. Go raw vegan, fuckers!

Come to think of it, because of the rape-culture inherent in College Football, let’s ban that altogether. We should maintain the sanctity of of all living organisms on our blessed Gaia, who weeps everyday as many of our lovely piggies get slaughtered to make one damn football and many drunken, diabetic, meat-eating rapist-barbarians called football fans defecate into every orifice drilled into her sacred body. We shall progress into the enlightened sheep-people that we all aspire to be, cocooned in our self-righteousness and self-preservation, ensuring that we experience no-harm, no-pain, just sheer peanut-free, meat-free, sugar- and booze-free existence.

I, your Reverend Jacques, command this.



The Reverend Jacques on October 18, 2013 at 11:09 pm


Are you TRULY telling me that you do not really know what is in an Anthony’s Weiner, . . .

or a Barney’s Frank, for that matter? How about just reading the list of ingredients? LOL!!!

Good one. By the way, I read an article about a year ago that said footballs are in fact no longer made from pigskin. Sorry to burst your sausage. ROTFLMAO!!!

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on October 18, 2013 at 11:41 pm

    Oh – I forgot: penises (and testicles) should also be outlawed. EVERYONE SHALL HAVE A VAGINA!

    Arrrgh – I’ve been on this planet too long. Almighty Xenu – why have you forsaken us?

    The Reverend Jacques on October 19, 2013 at 3:29 am

DSR, I agree with you on Reeses’ Pieces. I was so disappointed in their taste when they came out (I never have seen “ET” either & I don’t ever wanna…). M&Ms now have peanut butter M&Ms that are super-yummy and should have been the formula for RPs.

And I agree with you with that nasty trick. These Nazis-In-Mom-Jeans don’t seem to think we have a heart that way but of course ALL good people should NOT do that to anyone with a food allergy. It’s beyond cruel and not even close to funny.

I would never expose anyone to a food they were allergic to (unless they were a top enemy or sociopath…). But these selfish sooks think the majority should bow to the minority and I am against that!

Skunky on October 19, 2013 at 12:41 pm

Debbie, seems the “love” you are getting is reminiscent of what you wrote about WATCHMEN movie a few years ago. I am glad that you are standing up to the Political Correct Nazis.

I sympathize with people that have love ones that suffer from peanut allergies. I have a friend who has a child who is hemophiliac yet they do not tell business establishments to pad there entire business establishments so their child will not bruise or bleed. My question to these parents is that if they want their child to have the whole world bend over backwards fo them, then why not for hemophiliacs? Why is their child any more special than another child with a life threatening disability?

Now I am no conspiracy nut but I have read that the sudden upsurge in all new ailments like ppeanut allergies and diabities is all that proccessed food and Genetically Modified Food that is being thrown into the food chain, but like I said this just hearsay.

Anyway stay the course Debbie and do not let people that shamelessly use their children to promote their agenda. Just like when they bring their children to political rallies and demonstrations and knowing that it can get dangerous.

Mario on October 19, 2013 at 2:24 pm

I haven’t read every comment here, but I’ve skimmed a lot of them, and haven’t seen the perspective of someone who suffers from a food allergy on here, so I’d just like to comment my thoughts.
I am an individual who is anaphylactic (life threatening allergy) to peanuts, and allergic to peanuts. Shockingly, I would support the idea of there being a peanut free game. I don’t see it as trying to take away from everyone else’s enjoyment from the game, rather I see it as giving an opportunity to those with food allergy’s to enjoy a football game like everyone else can, just once.
Now, I will say that I am biased. I haven’t walked a mile in any of your shoe’s, and I do not know how much of a inconvenience it truly is for all of you not to be able to eat peanuts for one game. However, I don’t think many of you have walked in my shoes either.
I simply don’t understand how whether you munch on peanuts or not has such an impact on your football game experience. I have never felt angry at those bound to wheel chairs when walking up a wheelchair ramp, but view that as being a pretty similar situation.
Also I should mention really quickly comparing allergies to being hemophiliac or diabetic is not valid, because diabetic people can be around sugar with no problems, it’s just whether they choose to consume it. With peanuts, I, as well as countless others, cannot even being around peanuts being cracked and open, due to the risk of triggering an inhalation reaction which I have had at a younger age.
If you disagree with me, that’s your opinion, I just ask that people here try to look at the issue from a different perspective, and realize we have by no means outlawed peanuts everywhere, or even tried to, we just want the opportunity to attend these types of events once without the fear of reaction.

Austin on October 19, 2013 at 3:51 pm

Austin seriously, haven’t read every post on here? Your comments show you haven’t read ANY!!! C’mon, read the first 50-75 and you’ll realize this was discussed ad nausaeum back then. EVERYBODY ON BOTH SIDES MADE THEIR POINTS WELL, AND EARLY ON!!!

You people are getting weak. Why don’t you move along? The 60’s style anti-war protests are probably on some documentary TV show right now, if you need to get your activist rocks off. There’s been plenty of substantive discussion here. Or is it because Austin is such a cool name and normally associated with the state of Texas that you felt the need to get your comments in? Seriously, it is a cool name.

I’d suggest you go back a few, and read my post about being The Resident Dumb Blond(e) and how I can be the biggest asshole on here if I want to, bar none. If you people are massing for another attack and you’re doing reconnaissance, it won’t work. I’m not going back out to the fields until tomorrow, and I’ve had enough of a break from this thread to refresh myself extremely well. I’ve got plenty of material, enough for a week in Vegas.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on October 19, 2013 at 4:29 pm

I am the grandparent of two children with this life threatening allergy. It is sad to hear Debbie speak of this issue in such an uncaring and ignorant way. Perhaps Debbie, if you developed this problem, or someday had a child with this issue, you might look at it from a different perspective. We should all care, as human beings, about others, especially these innocent children. Selfishness comes with immaturity. Hopefully, some day you will grow to care beyond yourself. In life you can work to make things better, and more positive, for your fellow human beings, or you can choose to think only of yourself and your own selfish needs. Debbie, I hope you mature, and give.thought and consideration to what these children, and their families, are going through with this life threatening allergy. Also, get on your knees and thank God that you don’t have this problem. Perhaps you could consider this proposed accommodation a small sacrifice you could make in gratitude for your own good health.

I hope you, and others, will take my words to heart and really consider them. Thank you.

Joyce on October 20, 2013 at 4:37 pm

    Sorry Joyce, honey badger don’t give a shit.

    skzion on October 20, 2013 at 4:58 pm

SO, . . .

I picked up the machetes, Joyce picked up a worn out copy of The Script. Skzion chimed in with an apt reply. Folks, the Peanut Free game is over. Hope your team won.

Elsewhere in da nooz, yet another Oarfish washed up in Kaliforniya. Isn’t it time for you peanut allergy activists to switch over to The Environmental Script? I hear that copies can be picked up on your way out of the stadium. Also, in case anyone didn’t hear, the Yankees won the World Series, and Anthony’s Weiner is contemplating yet another cumback. He’s thinking of a duet with Barney’s Frank. But as we all know, it was Sa(Brett) Favre who taught them how to selfie the ol’ hot dog.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on October 20, 2013 at 7:57 pm

You are a terrible person. My son was born with this. Do you think we asked god to give us a child that could die at the touch of a food? Do you think we do not suffer at the ignorance of people like you. I’m disappointed to see someone educated be so hateful, its usually the opposite. A child carrying a peanut sandwich in his bag is a like a loaded gun pointed at my child and everyday I pray hes ok, but I can’t keep him out of school. I do not take my son to games because lazy ignorant uneducated morons like you can’t change their snack to sun flower seeds or pretzels. I will never have anything to do with you.

8% of kids have food allergies. Families with kids that have food allergies are thankful for any events that help us keep our kids safe and help them feel included. Author of this article is why people with food allergies are going to have to have laws protect them. Do you want wheelchair ramps removed from the stadiums too?

Susan on October 29, 2013 at 2:16 am

Good web site you’ve got here.. It’s difficult to find high quality writing like yours nowadays.

I truly appreciate people like you! Take care!!

I was wondering if you ever considered changing the
page layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what
youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the
way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.

Maybe you could space it out better?
