 How do I start with this when my favorite website has nuts as a mascot?

I'm trying to eat healthier and nuts have become my go-to snack but I don't relish paying $10-12/lb. That's the best deal I've found anywhere and it looks like a pretty good mix.

"I have 50,000 pounds of nuts American Airlines and United didn't want! We're feeling sad. We're sitting on a lot of nuts."

Yeah, I feel sad when I sit on my nuts too. Then the burn begins.

I'm an outlier, I prefer peanuts to just about any other nut and they aren't $6.52/lb.  Walnuts would be second.

Eyyyy you guys like nuts? 'Coz I got your hot salty nuts RIGHT HERE!

I bought them from the people who supply airlines.

Costco extra fancy mixed nuts, $7.40/pound. I had to stop buying them because I was eating too many and I'm not normally a big snacker.  For some reason Fark rejected the link to the website.

Flew twice with them last weekend in Frist Class. No water, no nuts, no nothing. Nothing at all was offered. They said it was 'COVID and the CDC', which apparently only applied to shorter flights. Total BS.

All I've gotten in the past 20 years is pretzels. Dry, flavorless pretzels. Flying used to be cool, man.

I cried so hard when I saw the new Deadpool movie.
That's because when I got back from the snack bar, I accidentally sat on my left nut.

It wasn't Patton, it was General Anthony McAuliffe.

From the link: "Well, I don't know what to tell them." At that point, LTC Harry Kinnard, the Division's Operations Officer said, "What you said initially would be hard to beat." McAulliffe asked "What do you mean?" Kinnard, said, "Sir, you said nuts." All members of the staff agreed, so McAulliffe wrote it down on a message pad and said, "Have it typed up."

I thought airlines stopped serving nuts because, you know, sealed container, people with allergies, and all that.
