A Nutty Idea: New Mexico State To Drop Parking Citations For Peanut Butter (Yes, Peanut Butter)

New Mexico State is offering anyone with a campus parking ticket the chance to get out of their jam — with some peanut butter.

The university announced it will accept at least 80 ounces of peanut butter (about 5 or 6 small jars) as payment for a citation for parking without a permit.

The peanut butter payments will be accepted through Friday; The deal does not apply to other parking violations.

All of the peanut butter will be donated to a nearby food pantry.

What do you think about this idea? Should other campuses/cities do something similar around the holidays — or maybe a couple of times a year?
