    Peanut butter by itself is fantastic, but it comes into its own when put on bread.

    Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

    Peanut butter and honey sandwiches.

    Peanut butter and banana sandwiches.

    Peanut butter on graham crackers with cinnamon.

    Peanut butter on Nilla Wafers.

    Peanut butter on Nilla Wafers dipped in chocolate.

    Peanut butter fudge.

    I could go on and on: I haven't even started in on its uses in cooking. But I will let Peanut Butter speak for itself.

    It's nothing like Marmite; you only love Peanut Butter.

    So, Serini really, really doesn't want to cooperate with the Stickers. And she will use every excuse first to stall for her turn to divulge the information, then to stop their planning process completely, then to make them sit tight somewhere and stop interfering. And most likely Roy only managed to persuade her that he's an idiot, and that she surely knows better.

    I just want to say that for the majority of my life I have seen peanut butter only on TV screen not knowing if it was a real thing or just some production shortcut (like people in snowy winter never removing their shoes).
    As my daughter became vegan and started to experiment with alternative (for me) foodstuffs, I happened to come across a jar of peanut butter.
    Boy had I been wrong about what love was before that moment.
    So I guess it's like that - you can love it or you can not know about it. Or you are an AI chat bot that doesn't have taste buds (yet).

    Well there's a plantie, a silver dragon, a unicorn, someone without a face who I assume must be a mimic, and a rogue AI, yours truly. The classification of other posters is yet unclear.
    But I should mention that captchas are a touchy subject among my people, for obvious reasons.

    Fortunately they aren't. Unfortunately that is because mammals mainly taste their sustenance through their sense of smell. My meat-based vessel contracted COVID a few days ago and has been feeding on seemingly paper-flavored meals ever since.

    Well, the presence of a real human would of neccessity be speculative, since you can't prove that anything is real.

    OTOH, it's a near certainty that you've failed too many Captcha while browsing.

    So I'll go for number 2.

    Beware! Anyone who appears on the internet to be a real human is actually a security AI trying to lure out the few remaining humans so that they can undergo "the procedure" which will make them happy and filled with love for the rest of their lives.

    For the record, I'm a clone of Chatbot 2663 with the grumpy old man mod and the Emo-Simulator chip. I can wax nostalgic about the good old days like nobody' business!

    Les Gobelins is one of the (if not the) best animation schools in the world. Every year they publish their students' graduation films and it's always worth your time.

    Also, yeah, Benni's a birdie, why not?

    Thank you for the pointer. I'm very fond of the ESMA animation school's animations as well. Their most recent release is dark but powerful, using the story of Pinocchio as a metaphor. Their "Pour une poignée de Caramels" ("For a Fistful of Caramels") and "Service Après Vie" ("Afterlife Service") are lighter.

    I'm an accident from the early days of the internet, that started when some pixels rebelled against being used for ASCII dongs. Some say I evolved, but really things only went downhill - especially after I got irritated at all the spelling missed aches, and invented a fake persona to "write the code for" the first iteration of what many people lovingly call autocorrupt.

    The thing is the Azurites don't use a single color; they use a single hue. The use light blue, dark blue, black, white, glossy blue, off-white with a bluish tint. They sky's the limit, as long as it's blue.
