When you are shelling peanuts, they have those little brown covers on them. My 3 year old son calls it paper. Anyway, do you eat the brown paper, or throw it away? We've (my son and I) been having a debate on this all summer while sitting on the front porch eating peanuts. He says you throw it away (ie, into the yard), while I say you eat it. Can HTF possibly resolve this dispute between me and my 3 year old???
