They wanted to see the Scandinavian boys visiting America for once and get a taste of American culture, Peanut Butter being of special interest. We do have Peanut Butter up here in the North now like most American stuff, but for the sake of the comic lets say this was the first time they encountered it. :D

I have no idea how many people will get the last part, but it's a joke on the old American show "Mister Ed" from the 60's about a horse that could talk. When asked how they got the horse to move it's lips when "talking" the people behind the show claimed it was done by putting peanut butter on it's gums (they later told they had trained it to do so, but didn't want to disappoint the children who watched the show).

I honestly have no idea why I know about that show in the first place. :XD:

I love peanut butter. It's one of the few Americans stereotypes I can relate to.

@Mecharic I dunno who first used peanuts as food, but as to who first made it into paste (at least in recorded US history) was Mr. George Washington Carver who made many other inventions using peanuts including but not limited to Peanut Brittle, rubbing oil, hand lotion, shampoo, face bleach, toilet soap, dyes, paints, wood stains, glue, writing ink, the list goes on and on. Of course not all of these would be the best product to use for its given purpose, but it can be somewhat effectively used for all these things.

Who looked at a peanut shell (dirty, brown, hard entity) and thought "This is FOOD." and then who thought "lets make that into a paste!"? Honestly, who?

I thought the last panel was a reference to the swedish chef from sesame street.
Legend goes some americans wanted a swedish chef from Dalarna (a "state" in Sweden) to do a cookery show. When he was there and cooking he got nervous and started whispering the recipe to himself in swedish, the americans heard this and due to his broad accent they heard "hoodie doodie loodie boodie" and eventually it became a muppet.

My father told me that peanut butter in Europe wasn't as ours in North America, it was more natural and less "sticking on the palate"
