Slow news day side-splitting hilarity: Cleveland news station, BuzzFeed and racist sandwiches

Oh, our sides! On a slow news day, it has come to this.

As Twitchy reported back in October, a new entry was made into the Handbook of Racial Code Words: Peanut butter sammiches. Oh, the soft bigotry and subtle racism of your child’s lunch! BuzzFeed’s Andrew Kaczynski resurrected that story today with the hilarious photo.

Alas, it’s an old “slow news day” meme. The racist peanut butter sammich debate happened months ago, as the weather numbers in the graphic also make clear. Unless, of course, that nefarious global warming has magically made it 85 degrees in Ohio today.

Old meme or not, Twitter is gasping for breath! Slow news day funnies? They’ll take it.

And, leave it to Twitter!

And so it begins.

There is never a slow news day on Twitter. Oh, Twitter, don’t ever change!

    Does that make an oreo cookie racist too?

    • dmacleo

      nope because the black is overpowering the white. that makes it social justice.
      or some crap like that I guess…who the hell knows anymore LOL

      • Josephine (D)

        Just like with our Oreo-in-Chief, dontcha know?!

        • dmacleo

          the problem I have with that is I LIKE oreos.
          so I just cannot equate them with that thing.
          and yes I said thing.
          I’m sure someone will hang a racist tag onto me now, I do not care.

        • R0nin

          Oh, come now. He’s clearly a Hydrox, the ones with “white” on one side and “black” on the other. Half-black-half-white, in other words. The better to unite us, my dear. (I can’t help it if he divides instead.)

          • BlueGood

            OMG I must be in deep doo doo…cause I like Peanut Butter and MAYONAISE sammiches

            It is delicious!…Am I a racist?…..LOL

          • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

            How about Peanut Butter and American Cheese? Does that stick to the roof of your mouth? XD LOL Jawamax 8<{D} And Nuke 'em, to melt the cheese!

      • Gallatin

        You’re forgetting about how an Oreo cookie is eaten. It is pulled apart and the creamy white frosting is enjoyed first then the two cookie halves are dipped (overpowered) into a glass of white milk.

        • dmacleo

          see I never did the dipping in milk, I actually like (usually) eating them whole LOL

          maybe its my ingrained white guilt overpowering my inbred white racism??
          maybe I just eat my food in whatever way I want LOL

          • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

            Yeah, I just dunked the whole cookie in. None of that dissection crap.

          • Gallatin

            I always dunk whole too, its just that every Oreo commercial has the cookie being pulled apart with the center being eaten first.

          • Gallatin

            Same here, I just figured that we may as well bring up the sneaky racism of Oreo cookies before someone else does. Get it out in the open. Maybe obowmao will invite us to a luncheon at the White House so he can discuss our racism with us, since he is the first post racial president and is such a uniter.

      • Jay Stevens

        How about the reverse ones – the ones with vanilla wafers and a chocolate filling? Or the vanilla Oreos – a contradiction in terms if I ever heard one?

        Oops. I’m a racist.

    • Kevin Miller

      Only if it’s republican!

    • Thevelvetkitten

      Only if you lick the white from the center first….

      • PennyRobinsonFanClub

        Oh, you make that sound so =naughty= . . .

  • Guest

    The more the libs do this, the less the race card will mean.

  • sleazyrider

    I always new that Presley boy from tupelo was a hater..He even put nanners on his…someone break the nanner code…please..

    • sleazyrider


      •!/GRHammersmith Alaskan

        Don’t try to cover it up. We all know you’re homophonic.

    • RblDiver

      Putting “nanners” on your sammich clearly indicates that you want to throw Grandma off the cliff.

    • $36544368

      Nanners are eaten by primates…that’s as far as I’ll go with that one.

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      While my brother ate bananas and peanut butter, which I thought was absolutely disgusting, I was happily eating my bananas and Hellmann’s mayo sandwiches. Can’t get more white than that. I must have been a prejudiced little child. Must have been that black boy that picked on me mercilessly on the way home from school in the first grade. His name was Algernon, not a name you can forget.

  • Marty Luther

    PB&J. Racial code if I’ve ever heard it.

    • GaryTheBrave

      It’s also sexist. It has B and J in it.

  • sleazyrider

    I have a confession to make…I like crunchy….anyone know Dr Phil?

    • $36544368

      I have a confession as well…I like super crunchy!

  • Emily B

    Well, I guess I was being incredibly racist last week when I directed the children at our church in a musical called “Peanut Butter Christmas”. Whoops. Wonder how many people were offended….. (smh)

  • Mike Sanfilippo

    You guys are kidding, right? Look at the temperatures on the bottom of the screen. If that isn’t enough to show you how old that photo is, go to the website and try to find anything recent on the subject. Come on now folks, easy on the eggnog! It’s still early!

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      Maybe someone took the photo, but didn’t post it when the debate was actually going on. Who knows, and in any event, who can’t do with a laugh at stupid liberal logic?

    • PennyRobinsonFanClub

      You seem awfully eager to cover this up and wish it would just go away. What are you hiding? Do YOU enjoy PBJs????

  • sleazyrider

    Yeah…old…kinda like slavery..

      Rain is only hazardous when it falls through the nuclear haze from nuclear power plants damaged beyond repair from an earthquake and the resulting tsunami….. oh, um… yeah.

  • cscape

    one can contrive a RACIST MEME for absolutely everything, if given enough idiotic time to THINK about it…… in this case, PEANUTS, which are predominantly a SOUTHERN CROP, certainly must have been harvested over 150 years ago by BLACK SLAVES….. therefore, to eat a PB and J sandwich is INSENSITIVE at best, and outright RACIST at worst (i don’t believe that…. i just trying to climb into their dysfunctional minds)

    • Hiraghm

      Does this mean my cotton underwear is also racist?

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      George Washington Carver first made peanut butter. He was black. I don’t want to say ‘invented’, since it’s basically just cooking.

    • PennyRobinsonFanClub

      Wow, that really sours that whole “Peanuts” comic strip and Christmas specials thing, huh?

  • Hiraghm
  • sleazyrider

    So thats why Elvis swung his pelvis?….nanners?

  • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

    What about Moonpies? Those are pretty racist, in my opinion.

  • ember

    PB&J are racist. What are cucumber sam-itches?
