If you are writing a novel about the South, you may go ahead and use the title “Boiled Peanuts,” if it hasn’t already been used. Otherwise, I can’t say I have a whole lot of boiled peanuts related material, though, I guess they are sort of tasty, a little more distinctive with Cajun seasoning. When you drive by, there is never anybody working at the boiled peanuts stand, which is ubiquitous in all corners of Georgia. You have to holler off into the nearby woods to fetch the boiled peanuts boy, who is hardly enthusiastic about his profession. It may be more the concept that’s neater than the actual thing.
