Planters Peanut Company has been around more than 100 years, and the same can be said for their mascot, Mr. Peanut. And during all that time no one had a clue that that weird peanut with a top hat had a name for his car. And you know what else? No one knew the name of it. Until now that is. Take a look at what Planters tweeted recently.

That’s right, it’s called the “NUTmobile.” And we aren’t even shining a light on the fact that Mr. Peanut’s first name is Richard. Yes, his name is Dick Peanut. More on that later. But let’s first take a look at Twitter’s reaction to learning the name of Mr. Peanut’s vehicle.
