The folks at Planters found an effective way to get some publicity.
Kill off the mascot.
Mr. Peanut is gone, y’all, at least for now. And for some reason, Wesley Snipes is involved. In this Super Bowl spot, the famous legume is driving Snipes and Matt Walsh when tragedy strikes, Mr. Peanut swerves and the three find themselves about to fall off a cliff. Their only hope is the branch they’re all clinging to, but it’s about to give way under the weight. Like Leo DiCaprio in “Titanic,” Mr. P let makes the ultimate sacrifice. He was 104.

The Ripple Effect of NFL QB Lamar Jackson Testing Positive for COVID-19 (Watch)
*With Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson reportedly testing positive for COVID-19, joining the multitude of recent positive tests in their organization, the team’s game that was scheduled Thanksgiving night against the Pittsburgh Steelers was moved to Sunday afternoon at 1:15 p.m. EST.
But the consequences of their COVID situation extend beyond Baltimore.
ESPN’s NFL reporter Adam Schefter joined SportsCenter yesterday to discuss Jackson’s positive test and what it could mean for the Ravens/Steelers matchup and future NFL games.
Baltimore’s COVID collapse:
This week, the Ravens placed outside linebacker Pernell McPhee on the Reserve/COVID-19, joining running backs Mark Ingram and J.K. Dobbins and defensive tackle Brandon Williams. Defensive end Jihad Ward, defensive end Calais Campbell, offensive linemen Patrick Mekari and Matt Skura were also among Ravens players placed on the Reserve/Covid-19 list. Also, the Ravens said Wednesday the team “disciplined” a staff member for conduct surrounding the recent COVID-19 cases affecting the organization.
‘Don’t Ever Talk to the President That Way!’: Trump Pulls Rank on Reporter During Thanksgiving Presser (Watch)
*President Trump surfaced Thursday to take questions from reporters for the first time since he lost the presidential election and he’s still swears that he won.
He also yelled at a reporter who was following up on Trump’s declaration that if the electoral college formalizes Joe Biden’s victory, they will have “made a mistake, cause this election was a fraud.” When Reuters White House correspondent Jeff Mason tried to ask a follow up, Trump barked back: “Don’t talk to me that way. I’m the President of the United States. Don’t ever talk to the president that way.”
Asked about his plans for his last Thanksgiving in the White House, Trump said you “can’t say what’s first or last,” adding it might be the “first one of a second term.” He also said: “It’s going to be a very hard thing to concede. This was a massive fraud.”
Trump went on to say he would travel to Georgia to help the two GOP candidates in the Senate runoffs there, he whined about Biden picking a Cabinet while the results are still pending due to fraud, and he pleaded to reporters, “Don’t let Biden take credit for the vaccine.”
