Fluff, nuts

The world learned simultaneously this week 1) what a fluffernutter is and 2) why nothing ever gets accomplished at the Massachusetts statehouse, when a Cambridge senator, angry that his son had been served a marshmallow and peanutbutter sandwich at school, wanted to restrict how often fluffernutters could be served for lunch.

And naturally, because we have ceded the actual legislating to an activist judiciary, there was plenty of appetite on Beacon Hill for a state representative to propose making the fluffernutter the official state sandwich.

Which got me thinking, shouldn't the Massachusetts state sandwich involve turkeys, or possibly beans?

I might also suggest the finger as the state bird and "Move back where you came from" as the state motto.

What an informative and well-written story on Fluffernutters.
