peanut butter problems

I've been meaning to post this poll for about a month, since the last time Tim & Peter came round and ate peanut butter at me...

Poll #352174 The peanut butter conundrum!

How do you normally put peanut butter on bread?

I use the peanut butter as butter!
23(50.0%)
I put normal butter on first!
5(10.9%)
I don't eat peanut butter.
18(39.1%)

I believe that people should be able to eat peanut butter however they like!

Yes!
12(25.0%)
I don't care either way.
4(8.3%)
Peanut butter is icky and should be banned.
5(10.4%)
...but I still think it's very strange to put normal butter on as well as peanut butter.
4(8.3%)


You see (in case it wasn't obvious from the wording of the poll), I have always treated peanut butter as butter, and put it directly onto bread. I do the same thing with almost everything I put on bread - chocolate spread and even jam (only Marmite gets put over a layer of non-dairy butterlike stuff). But Tim & Peter both put normal butter on first, then a fairly thin layer of peanut butter. I think this is strange and mutant behaviour!

Peter has an excuse in that he is Dutch, and has thus grown up calling p.butter "peanut cheese". But Tim has no excuse, and moreover thinks I am the weird one for not putting normal butter on first! So who is right? Or at least, who is more in line with what "normal" people do? ;)

    I am alive. Coping with the hiatus hernia. Perhaps in a one damned thing after another sort of way. Still, the symptoms have all improved…

    Went to the doctor yesterday. My TSH level, which was apparently 1.93 uIU/mL in October 2015 is now up to the truly appalling 4.13 uIU/mL. Suddenly…
