The way I eat them is you pop the entire boiled peanut in your mouth, then you crack it open with your teeth letting the juices exploded and then you drink the juice, then you pull the peanut out of your mouth and break the rest of it open with your fingers, and then pull the peanuts out of the shell with your teeth and eat them. Thats the southern way to eat them. But everyone has there own way. Thats how I do it.
Thinking about at my Highschool years in AG class, our teacher was a black guy named "smitty" at least thats what we called him. I think it was his real name but not sure. Anyway, he was a great funny guy and very nice. But one day I came to class late and he was in the middle of telling everyone he wasn't going to tolerate people being late and if they were for now on they would get a paddling from his paddle stick he had. It was my first class every morning at 7:30. Well, I walked into the middle of that discussion and he looked at me with a very funny face expression and said come up here and receive your punishment. I said what? I'm rarely ever late but whatever Smitty, if you want to hit me go right ahead, everyone in the class laughed. Smitty did too. It was all really innocent and family orientated. We were a group and family in the FFA and AG dept. So I took my lick after removing my can of copenhagen snuff from my back pocket, and went and sat down. It was all in fun, he didn't hit hard, just stung a little..lol
I don't dip snuff anymore, but in highschool to be cool with the croud I was in,, I did. I continued it a few years after highschool, then eventually quit.
