Paul F. Tompkins: Gag Peanut Brittle

I was in a novelty store the other day, because I am a fan of hilarity, and saw that they are still making the gag peanut brittle. You know what I'm talking about? You open the can of peanut brittle up and snakes fly out! And the time to really get someone with this, I think, was the mid-1800s -- you know, before entertainment was invented and that was the best they had.
