For Peanuts

It happens every year in my home town.

The local Kiwanis Club recruits its members to stand at corners and collect money for peanuts. Literal peanuts. Beer nuts to be exact.

I've noticed this phenomenon over the years and wondered about the lucidity of it.

It is supposed to be a fundraiser.



It must be somewhat effective. Why else would they send their members to man the street corners?

Frankly I don't get it. Whenever I see them, I have no problem driving by guilt free. Giving cash to sweaty people on a street corner just doesn't seem right. And who carries cash anymore?

I know, I know, its for a good cause. They seem somewhat friendly. You've got to give them props for taking time to stand in the middle of the street as cars drive by.

But seriously, would you want to buy peanuts from this guy?

That was so funny Megan! Is Kory part of the Kiwanis club? I guess it's kind of related to the Key Club in school which Matt is now the sponsor of at BHS.

Megan,
That was so funny! I usually go by people doing that with as little eye contact as possible.
