the dark story of Skippy

I never knew there was a terrible story behind the naming of Skippy peanut butter.

And I mean it: really, really terrible. The kind of terrible you can only get when you combine an unscrupulous business and a powerful government.

Oh. my. god. That is horrible. And makes me sort of glad we always bought Jif.

::stares:: Wow. I'm glad I don't eat peanut butter! But on the few occasions that I buy it, I'll be sure to never buy Skippy. ::shudders::

Damn. That's even worse than what DC did to Fawcett over Captain Marvel. Exponentially worse, in fact -- I can't believe they actually manipulated/bribed the IRS into auditing him.
