First Take

Yuma Sun - - NEWS - By Randy Hoeft, photo edi­tor

Sud­denly, the world of so­cial me­dia is alive with talk about the peanut but­ter and may­on­naise sand­wich.

I caught a glimpse of a story on the tele­vi­sion news Tues­day morn­ing about the “PBM” del­i­cacy, dur­ing which it was re­ported that a news­pa­per poll found that 62 per­cent of its read­ers “wouldn’t ever try the sand­wich.”

Let me go on record by say­ing that I ab­so­lutely l-ov-e PBMs, and to those 62 per­centers who have never tried one, don’t judge a sand­wich by what’s spilling over the edge.

Be­sides, it’s not as un­usual, in my opin­ion, as some other sand­wiches my brother and I ex­per­i­mented with as young­sters. For ex­am­ple, my brother is fond of peanut but­ter and but­ter sand­wiches. Yes, but­ter, like the kind you spread on toast.

I never de­vel­oped a taste for that com­bi­na­tion.

Then again, I saw in an on­line story that some peo­ple put let­tuce on their PBMs. Um, yuck! I have to draw the line at putting any veg­gies in my PBM.

Oh, and my PBMs fea­ture creamy, not chunky.
