This Pleases the Nut refers to a reaction image of a smiling peanut paired with the text, itself a riff on the This Pleases X snowclone. It is often used with captions which turn the use of "nut" into slang for an orgasm.


The statue used in the reaction image was erected by the Indiana Democratic Party in 1976 in Plains, Georgia, as a part of Jimmy Carter's election campaign.[1] The statue references Carter's history as a peanut farmer and its grin is meant to resemble the then-candidate's.

On June 2nd, 2018, the statue was posted in /r/Bossfight, gaining over 200 points (shown below, left). On September 17th, 2018, the statue was posted to /r/CommentAwardsForum with the caption "This Pleases the Nut" (shown below, right).
