what are goober peas? peanuts are legumes

"goober peas" are peanuts.
I's an old, probably southern, name for them.
I recall in Jr High Choir singing an old Civil War folk song about eatin' goober peas, the teacher explained to us that the song was about having nothing to eat but peanuts, probably boiled peanuts, not roasted and salted or anything nice like that.

Fun teaser but the jury is still out over who is the predecessor of whom: the chicken or the egg.

This was a lot harder than it looked at first glance. I got most of them but not all. Good teaser. I'd like to see more like this one.

I'm with Bradon, I really liked this one, even though it made me think too hard. I would love some more, please.

That was a good one. Almost gave up on "Sunny & Share" (could figure out "Share" but not the other half) and then decided to give it one more shot. Glad I did as I got it that time!

Missed a few but enjoyed the teaser. (Never heard of Fife & Drum or Six Degrees and didn't watch Mayberry enough to know the deputy's name)

I loved it. Very good teaser, thanks for posting it. I only missed one. woo hoo.

A very ecclictic mix! I don't know if I agree with mixing painfully obvious pairs with pop culture pairs with obscure old-tyme pairs (who thinks fife & drum is a common expression?) But it still took some thinking. Well done.

I loved this puzzle!! This is my kind of thing! And, I didn't get them all right, but still loved it!

Great teaser! Only missed Sonny and Cher Thanks for posting!

Overall, a nice little teaser. I don't agree with the use of the homophones, though, since there was no indication of this in the directions or example.

I only missed Sonny & Cher, the rest were not too tough. Maybe I remembered them from last time.
